This question has been mentioned on several other threads. On November 14th tech forum (chan 101) they're suppose to announce the mpeg4 plans. For now there are many rumors which often lead to even more questions. Both DirecTV and Dishnetwork have plans to migrate in that direction and it appears that Directv may be leading by a few months.

This might be a stupid question, but does mpeg4 require new hardware?
