HD transmission would require a lot more satellites and lot more transponders with high data capacity which are simply not available right now. And renting transponders on foreign satellites will not be a feasible option. So the ISRO need to put things on an F1 track !!

What stops us from using some of the DTH equipments add some more hardware and get all free to air HD satellites channels.

Are there any satellites beaming HDTV content covering India ? I doubt it.

The terrible thing is that they should have planned bringing in HDTV (as well as widescreen content) with CAS instead of just applying 10 year old technology.But it seems that perhaps the people in charge are not so abreast with technology. Plus, there really is no incentive to upgrade here - people are not going to start watching more saas-bahu programs if they go HD. (Plus god save us if those serials with their atrocious audio mixing ever go 5.1 or 7.1 surround!!! :D)Save legislative measures on part of the parliament and TRAI, I really don't think HDTV is going to come here ever. We are still stuck on VCDs, and for good or for worse, money reigns over quality ever time here.

Yes there are. But they are not available to the regular public. You need to be high-level US Embassy employee to access those broadcasts.
i dint get this why would anybody need a high-level US embassy employee access just to HDTV broadcast???? There is no HDTV content beamed over the indian continent.

let me clear some of the doubts regarding HDTV tranmission. Contrary to belief that bandwidth requirement for high def transmission is high, it takes almost equal bandwidth and this is decreasing day by day as the compression technology becomes better. to put it simple, SD transmission of today is done using relatively inefficient mpeg-2 where as de facto standard for high def is H264 codec ( a flavour of mpeg-4 ) which is highly efficient. So bandwidth is not the problem, it's the cost of new hardware which can handle huge processing needed for this. Also lack of vision by Indian companies is also responsible for this. It's the money which matters and there is nothing wrong with it. Believe me my dear friend, common Indians can't afford the cost of such an investment right now. It's true that you won't be able to see HD transmission for atleast couple of years till it becomes so cheap that even countries like sudan and ethopia makes it available to their people.
