reason for any cable company to rebroadcast such signals.

The Dutch DTT transition should teach a lesson. All the hype about making these new signals easy to receive has to be balanced against costs. When push comes to shove, easy to receive and high quality images conspire to make the costs higher than people are willing to pay.

Of course, these new services may offer low res images only, intended for handheld devices perhaps, in which case you may be right to say cable wouldn't want to carry them.
