NSR forecasts 900 HD channels via satellite by 2012

Darren Murph

Granted, we've heard certain carriers make some fairly lofty claims about HD capacity in the past, but a new study carried out by international market research and consulting firm NSR is putting everyone to shame. According to new research covering the "entire commercial satellite transponder leasing sector," it's suggested that around 900 high-definition and 9,500 standard-definition channels will be accessible via satellite by 2012. 'Course, its actual estimates for reaching those figures are already running behind, but to be frank, we'd be stoked to have even a third of that number readily available in just four years. We wouldn't go taking these hunches without a helping of salt, however, as we know all too well just how awry these estimations can go.
