I'd say about 80% of my tv watching is in true HD.
The spin from the Dish customers is just astounding. It must hurt them so badly to see DirecTV snatch away the HD crown so quickly, after they had it for so long. They can feel free to continue living in denial, with their "discriminating" provider, while I enjoy all of the HD that they don't have.
id say around 80-85 percent for me
not sure what you're watching.... bout the only thing that I watch that isn't in HD is my local news... so 99% of what I watch IS in HD...
Pretty sure he meant to say "now" instead of "not" which would make much more sense.
And even my local news (2 out of 3 stations that have newscasts) is in HD.
yeah... "now" makes a lot more sense.... no local stations do their newscasts in HD around here... would be very cool though...
In other words there is one program on BBC America we watch that is SD. Everything else is HD.
And since BBCA is going HD in 2008 then I'd say we'll be at 100% HD soon enough.
They don't have any HD to watch so they spend their time trolling the D* forums instead.
Don't know.Only know that D* carrys alot more basic national channels than E*.
And I'm talking about ones that are not PI channels or shopping networks.
That could be said about the D* folks that can't stay out of the E* forum. 54-111 channels of HD and nothing on?
Believe it or not.I watch and post at the same time.Guess you could say I'm a multi
I don't do it, and I certainly don't support those who do.
Well one of those channels that doesnt show any HD(tbs) had several hours of stand up comedy on last night. Just like the baseball playoffs TBS HD is breathtaking. I really cant wait until they start showing more, looks great!
Everyone has there own opinion of counting HD channels. So my point is some of the new channels that have no HD programming now have announced HD programming for 2008 and some for late 2007. So why not add the channels now and be ahead of the curve after all upconverted material is way better than SD.
If a channel only has 1 program on it in HD and you watch it that channel should be counted as an HD Channel.
Its no different than having a 24/7 HD channel and watching only one program on it.
So that being said I only count the the channels that have programming I watch in HD. So everyones count will be different who cares about the way D* or E* count theres they are counting for everyone.
"54-11," huh? Nice sarcastic swipe at D*. I trust you're doing the same for E*.
Unless it is modified from OAR in which case, it is worse than SD (for those who aren't into plasma HDTVs anyway).
Then watch the SD version if you prefer it's a matter of personal choice.
It is 54-111 (or 54 to 111) channels on D* ... 54 being what I consider national feeds and 111 being the absolute maximum following the counting rules on D*'s website.
For E* it would be 42-82 ... but I wouldn't say "nothing on" since most E* subscribers seem to be spending more time watching HD or discussing other topics than complaining about their service. Most of the time seems that there are actually more D* customer's complaining about E*'s lineup than E* customers - including those who like to visit the E* forums to complain/gloat/etc.
So much for good sportsmanship.
Too many people complaining about the other guy, as if that's going to change things with their own provider.
WOW!! What a way to introduce yourself to the forum. Insult the people and mods that run it....
