Not sure if this has been previously theorized, but is it possible we'll see new HD after the MLB Extra Innings channels go away next week?
and some of part time RSN over flows come from PPV channel take a ways.Davenlr said:I really doubt it has anything to do with MLB-EI, since they are just virtual remaps of the Sports Pak channels in the 600's, which aren't going away. Besides, D12 isn't going to be lit up til after the next season starts, so they would still need the reserve the bandwidth...and then there is Basketball...
I don't think bandwidth is a problem anyway. I think Directv is just busy getting everyones HD locals on sat first.
Again, as others have stated, bandwidth is available to add more national HD when DirecTV decides to do so. That they haven't added more at this point is not related to the sports packages.gcd0865 said:I'm with you in hoping for more national HD channels soon. Unfortunately, the MLB-EI HD bandwidth might be more than taken up by the soon-to-appear NBA League Pass HD and NHL Center Ice HD feeds this fall.
