What is the likelihood of Setanta HD coming to SD? I believe someone mentioned that they had to drop an HD PPV to add SN1 if that is true then they must have bandwidth issues. I understand that there are other more popular channels that are still not added but for $15 it is getting harder to watch the sd feed

SD has very little free bandwidth. When they start moving channels to MPEG4 where only the newer 6xx series receivers can view them some bandwidth will free up. It has been mentioned that process will not even start until the summer of 2011. I'm only guessing, but even then Setana HD will probably not be a priority so I wouldn't expect it to show up before the new satellite goes up in the fall of 2012.
