thanks, but if rogers and bell are offering it, there has to be some demand and it's not a 24/7 offering, so they should be able to find transponder space for nights and weekends, especially as we forge towards mp4 compression. i don't need the sd version of the channels either, just offer espn and espn2 games in hd in the package for a fee and i'm set.

that's why i hope the mp4 compression helps open up space, plus the possibility if we have to wait until 2012 for the new satellite that they'll use all 3 for the additional space as this is all i think shaw direct is missing, offering the espn/2 games during college bball and football seasons.

i know hd takes more space, but i'm saying for certain packages, ie. the sports ppv, they should scrap the sd offering and just make it all hd (assuming the games are available as such). if you're paying for a sports ppv package, i'm pretty sure you're going to have an hd tv.
