I like MGM HD. There are many old movies that I haven't seen in ages.
However, I'm not impressed with the video quality of half of the movies
that they broadcast in HD. Some of these movies are less than 20 years
old... the picture is very grainy and dark. Is this caused by bad transfer?
Or does MGM HD really broadcast "true" HD? (compared to HDNet Movies
I think that is the cool thing about the New MPEG 4 channels. You can see the film grain. Sometimes movie companies will take more time to clean up the film. But the fact that you are seeing the film grain goes to show that DirecTV is not skimping on bandwidth with the new channels.
