Regarding New Channels, Now that NFL Sunday Ticket is done, and when NHL Centre Ice ends in April, could Shaw Direct use this bandwidth space for adding some HD Speciality channels?

My thought is the bandwidth they are currently using for these sports packages when it comes available in April is it just left open? Could SD then use this space for speciality HD channels that they would like to add?

With Most Sport package subscribers being switched over this past fall to the new receivers, could they then package all the sports packages on to mpeg-4 format? Or would there still be a bandwidth crunch until the new satellite is up and functioning.
