is HDTV's original source (Discovery HD etc.) also C-Band?

This is interesting. What about commercials? Does the first generation signal carry commercials, or are they added by the carrier? I was watching a football game while on a cruise a couple years ago, and during the commercial break the screen would go black but I could hear John Madden and Pat Summerall shooting the breeze in the backround. Is this what I was getting, the "first generation" satellite feed?

Not only do they (cable and DBS) take C-band as the original source, they often will use OTA analog for the locals........but, they can always rubber-stamp "DIGITAL" on them and no one knows the difference.
