I wouldn't hold my breath though. It would be a nice surprise for the UFC's to be in HD!
If it ain't in HD, it ain't worth watching!

Close. Actually the CGI and some effects were done digitally. They were output as CCIR-601 video to the Abekas tape format on 8mm data cassettes. Granted, that could be considered "digital video tape", but it's not what most people think of when you say video tape.

It's still all SD 4:3 content, of course.

Thanks for the clarification. I knew the general gist of it, but not the technical side.

B5 is 16:9 however.

Does anyone know if DS9 or Voyager were originally done in HD? Seeing them in HD on Spike would be sweet.

I think both shows pre-date HD filming in the Star Trek franchise. I think Enterprise was the first. They also did Enterprise in letterbox, like The West Wing.
I have been a DirecTV subscriber since 2005.

A few channels I'd still like to see DirecTV add are:
CSPAN3, the PAC-12 Network(s), BBC World and more international news channels.

Yup....They have already bought the equipment. From people that I talk to from TNA, after the next iMPACT filming, they will be swapping everything out in Orlando for the HD equipment.

I belive TNA's goal is to beat WWE to the HD launch.

Wow! I don't think I've ever seen this many consecutive shows in a row. CSI & VIP dominate two straight days of programing. Sheesh! Don't get me wrong, I love CSI, but this schedule is ridiculous.

The regular spike is like that too, at least from what I have seen. Havent started watching the HD spike - no time to watch TV!
There are two kinds of Strength: the strength to lead, and the strength to follow; the strength to control, and the strength to yield. There are two kinds of Power: The power to strip another's soul bare, and the power to stand naked.

All new original programming on Spike is in HD (season 3 of Pros vs. Joes and season 2 of MANswers, for instance, which will both air next year). Also, all original scripted programming has been and will be in HD (Blade: The Series and The Kill Point, although neither are coming back). Also, the Video Game Awards on December 9th will be in HD.

Some of this (The Kill Point, for instance) is available in HD through XBox Live, as well.

If it helps, I have all of the series on DVD except for Voyager (ugh). Only Enterprise is in widescreen. The others are all 4:3. Nice 5.1 though...


The fact that your standard DVDs are 4:3 does not mean that the original film isn't widescreen. The DVD release of "Wiseguy" was 4:3, but the episodes have been remastered in widescreen HD and are shown in that format on HDNet.
