There is nothing, whatsoever, to indicate DISH has any plans for carriage of FSNMW-HD.
DISH has already uplinked all but 2 of the FSN HD RSN's, of which MW was not included.
That being said, negotiations are always on-going and always kept tight-lipped. If DISH has any intent for carriage of FSNMW-HD, it would seem to be more later, than sooner.
If it's a deal-breaker channel for you, I'd urge you to go with the provider(s) who already have carriage.
On a side note...between KSDK, ESPN, and FOX, you still should see 25-30 HD Cards games this season without FSNMW-HD. With FSNMW-HD, I'd expect an additional 20-25 HD productions, 4 of which DISH will spot on 9467 in HD.
