Right now 91 is 100% SD and 4 or 5 transponders of 82 are also SD,(total of 36/37 TP's) no I do not think there is room on 1 bird, unless they compress the hell out of them and drop a few PPV etc. I think at the current compression they will need 40 TP's, for existing and new SD Channels.
When they have swapped out all the 9200 & 6100 models and they switch HD to MPEG4, that should free up about 4 or 5 TP's. They will then need 4 of these for the new SD Channels, leaving 1 free TP for new HD content.
This is of course just a guess.
