Supposedly, theyre adding 1500 channels with this new satellite. Of course, most will be locals.. but there will be quite a few channels added in HD... thats just common sense. Im sure theyll have more HD than Voom has. I just got off the phone with them and right now, theyre taking requests as to what channels people want in HD. So call them up, and let them know what you want.
I requested the YES network in HD.
