Yep, they do that so the opening credits don't get cropped.


That always gets my hopes up. They there's the big letdown as soon as the credits end.

Now showing "The Remains of the Day", with great cast, direction, locations, picture and sound quality.

When HDNet aired it in 2.35, in the exact same master that was released on Blu-Ray.

...and you know this how exactly?


What's your deal with the sarcasm? I know it because I'VE SEEN THEM. Is that so crazy to believe? lol. (And I actually review Blu-Rays and DVDs so I actually have some idea what I'm talking about).

It's the same master. It has the same logos at the beginning. It looks identical. It's composed exactly the same way. It doesn't look like a blurry mess like the Sony Movie Channel master that looks like it's literally from over a decade ago.

You don't exactly need to be Sherlock Holmes or an "insider at blu-ray.com" to deduce that.

...then you're guessing. Just say that next time. You do not know that it is the same master. The logos at the beginning do not indicate that you are looking at the same master. Your visual inspection is simply not adequate either. Who do you review for?

I looked at the channel the first day it came on but didn't check it out again until yesterday and now the channel is gone and I get the I haven't bought the channel message.

Do you have the HD Extra Pack? Are the other channels around it live (Smith, UHD)? If so, sounds like you need to refresh services.
