The "main" reason on why Dish Network has more HD content right now...
Is they where able to purchase the two VOOM network SATs, and basically get "instant" bandwith for their customers.
So something that normally takes YEARS to prepare, build, schedule, launch, test, ect... Dish Network virtually got "overnight"
Where DirecTV is set to launch their SATs in the first half of this year.
Right now, DirecTV has pretty much no more bandwith for National HD's.
