That's also good
Channels should be downscaled to SD from set top box
They cant pressurize for hd cahnnels, and they dont need to. Broadcasters will anyway add hd channels for the sake of competition.
But for those channels which are already in hd, if the dth operators stop adding their sd versions(since they show the same content as the hd version), the sd version will shut down eventually, and the useless concept of mirror feeds will be past.
In simpler terms, till a channel is not launched in hd, it is available in sd, but once it launches its hd version, dth providers should stop carrying its sd version and carry hd only....
Sadly, they dont, but it'll be profitable for them too, as they won't be needing to buy 2 license for the same channel....
License fee is nothing with comparison to what they earn from ads by keeping these channels.
At the same time, broadcasters will loose much revenue from ads which having different rates on SD & HD feeds of same channel
Then we'll have to wait for someone to start a revolution, just like jio did by ditching 2g/3g in telecom industry...
