Yeah, you're probably right - I was just surprised it would be broadcast so close to the blu-ray release date (hell, I was surprised we had Season 1 already).
Well, TOS-R started syndicating in the US well before the HD-DVD release. At least half the reason they're doing TNG-HD is to preserve the value of the syndication rights as more and more channels look for HD content over SD, in the same way TOS was so brightly coloured back in the 60s because they wanted viewers to feel they were missing out if they watched in B&W.
