Loral Skynet Exec: HDTV Will Help Fill Excess Satellite Capacity

By | April 20, 2004

Hedinger said that because HDTV requires additional bandwidth, its use could help to offset the lack of growth for certain other services during the past couple of years. HDTV demand is on the rise, and it will climb further as more programming tailored to that technology becomes available, he added.
