I am sure all channels will be in Hi Definition at some point. I also think they have a goal to have all lil in Hi Definition from 99or 103 before they are worried about getting all the national channels in Hi Definition. It would be nice if they could get both by 2016, and then begin the slow process of killing off sd. I think d14 will get them a long way towards that goal, with all the shopping channels and such going Hi Definition in that sat, along with a lot of the lil markets. I expect d15 to get more channels in each market, if not all a hd path, where as i only expect d14 to just get every market some hd. Just my guess.... But all these things are secondary. It still appears the Lakers channel has no effect on DIRECTV launching the remaining top line Hi Definition national channels.
