Default Will more bandwidth mean more HD channels for Dish?

Dish must have some plans in mind for the nearly billion dollars in increased bandwidth. Will this mean more HD programming?

Dish won 168 licenses in the E block, spectrum covering most of the United States, for a total of $711 million, according to the FCC's Web site. The company itself acknowledged the auction win in a statement Friday. There had earlier been confusion about whether the winning bids were from Dish or from EchoStar, the hardware part of the business that split off from Dish Network.

Bandwidth is everything these days, could be more channels or HD downloads or anything else they can dream up!
