There is another HD on SuperDish rumour being floated about. But with Dish having to realign many markets due to the upcoming "All locals from a market must be on a single dish" law, there is a lot of shuffling about to take place at Dish. Throw the possible Voom involvment with their 61.5 satellite into the mix and nobody really knows what Dish is going to do with HD.
AMC-15 will go to slot 105, and it will replace the old AMC-2 which currently can't effectively broadcast to the entire CONUS. So they can:
Put HD on the new 105 Satelite and require SuperDish for HD
Put HD on the Dish 500 Satellites (110 & 119) which are already crowded.
Put HD on the Wing Satellites (61.5 & 148)
Use a combination of the 3 above and require a SuperDish and Wing Satellite with a DPP44 switch to receive 4 satellites.

Is the "All locals from a market must be on a single dish" law a proposal, or, a law that has passed and has a pending enformecement date?
|What are the "possible Voom involvement issues"? Is E* buying out V* a possible part of that?|
|Will Dish devote all this new bandwidth to HD LIL, or, might we get StarzHD, CinemaxHD and TMCHD and more?|
|Is Dish going to exchange old dishes and switches free of charge for long paying $100+/mo. HD customers?|
