I know there have been topics on what channels we would like to see, but how many new channels do you think we will get over the next year/year and a half?
I guess there has to be a limit to what Sky want due to demand/population etc so we will never see hundreds as in the UK.
I'm thinking, that looking at what we have now...6 news channels, 5 sport, 4 kids, 5 movies, living/food , documentries etc(approx numbers)..that we are probably almost maxed out for content.
I guess that all we can expect in the near future is channels upgrading to HD.
I was just checking out Foxtel channels in Oz and to be honest maybe would like to see 3 or 4 of what they have, otherwise what seems like alot of duplicated channels.

By the way, great website first port of call for tech issues in the past and usually an answer found!

Sky seem to be constrained by the lack of free space currently available to them on Optus D1.

The only way around that would possibly be to start using D3, if they even have purchased any space on that. Guess it wouldn't be any time soon all the same, as they'd have to get everyone set up to use this properly (D3 is at 156E, D1 is at 160E)
