But if it was originally filmed in 35mm then an updated HD scan could be a simple (albeit pricey) solution.

Nor is there any need to, as most of the material airing on those subchannels was produced years before HD existed.

There’s also a bandwidth issue, if the main channel is full HD (1080i) then there is not enough bandwidth left to broadcast another HD stream.
