Don't forget the other side of this - The Channels need them to broadcast these HD Channels as much as they need the HD Channels - as most MSOs do not have the bandwidth to roll them out.
If these networks want to be on the ground floor of HD - they need to get in now - and there is no reason to price them out of reach of most D* Customers - as that does no good.
Let's remember that UHD and MHD among others have already failed to find an audience and balance that makes sense to the network from an economic perspective - despite UHD being on virtually every cable system and both DBS suppliers.
