Virtually every other system cut their SDV teeth by adding just two or three new SDV HD channels at a time, going back to the early days of the HD "explosion" 18-24 months ago. The small number of channels added (not converted) each month, coupled with the fact that they were new services that people weren't yet dependent on made any initial issues seem like less of a major problem. Seeing their initial plan to convert such a large number of channels at one time, in a market as large as NYC scared the crap out of me (and I don't even live there)!Quote:Originally Posted by jcalabria
The good news is that SDV can work quite well... it does here. The technology works... in locations where it hasn't it is most likely implementation issues, not inherent technology issues. If there is a concern in NYC's transition, it is that a large number of channels appear to be going "cold turkey" as opposed to introducing new channels a few at a time as we have experienced.
