Satellite Exec: 63 New HD Channels in 2008

TV PREDICTIONS - Bryan McGuirk, president of satellite distributor SES Americom, says there will be 63 new HD channel launches in the next nine months.

The satellite executive tells Multichannel News that SES now delivers 64 different high-def feeds. But McGuirk says his company knows of at least 63 more channels planned in the coming months.

He did not reveal the names of the new channels.
