Probably because SN is a cheap network...besides I doubt there is any amount of people that have both HD-ready TVs along with the HD-channel pack. It's Canada so we're 1-2 yrs behind the US in adoption of technology, you gotta translate the manual into french, remember.

I think you're wrong about that, but that's not likely the reason. The real reason is that SportsNet has only one hdtv feed canada wide and the game was on sportsnet pacific which isn't a hi def channel, at least not on StarChoice.
By 2008 all US broadcasters must have completed the switch to hi def so it's only a matter of time.
In this case, I think supplying the channels will create the demand. Iif I knew I could get some of the Canucks games in HD, then I'd probably buy the box. You don't buy the box then sit around hoping the stuff you want will become available.
