Sorry don't buy that at all. It's all about money and only money. Other than the few RSNs that are coming online, I don't think DIRECTV actually feels any pressure to add more Hi Definition channels, and they absolutely without question have room for all the new channels on a couple of unused transponders right now that they recently emptied. And how many of the Hi Definition feeds other than premiums do they show in Hi Definition on two different feeds(east and west) None that I can think of. So that's really not an issue, especially with Viacom. Your argument about Viacom having to much space makes no sense, they have no duplicate feeds and several feeds that aren't in Hi Definition at all. They are not trying to shrink the number of Hi Definition channels Viacom is having them show. Dtv keeps saying this too, is that they want touch for epix. Interesting that it's all about money and those would be new channels that would actually take up some space. I think that's also the only thing that's causing issues (if the are actually issues, we dont know) with the pac12. Money. I don't think the holdback is bandwidth at all.
