If Spike does, why is BBC America the home of TNG in syndication now? Besides, now that BBC America does have more HD visibility around the country, and if they still want to continue airing TNG, why not do TNG HD, like on Saturday Nights with Doctor Who?
UK paid more money to air TNG HD?
I would think the rights to the standard TNG episodes and TNG on HD are different things. CBS woudn't even be remastering TNG if they didn't think they could make a bunch from selling the remastered show to networks.
