    The show is almost as old as me.

    In stunning SD. Hardly worth it.

    I was just commiserating with my D* bros. Not being able to see Amy Pond in HD is like having to view the Mona Lisa through the bottom of a shot glass.

    And the worst SD channel on the lineup. Will we never get it in HD? NetFlix streams a pretty good PQ for all the BBCA content using a BD player to upscale.

    What is the Netflix streaming cycle on Dr. Who? Amazon releases a lot of HD shows next day after airing for a few bucks.

    I don't quite get how they release them. Some shows appear quickly after their season is over and some you have to wait for. NF is in a transition period now, as they try to switch to more streaming, less DVD/BD by mail. We'll probably have to wait a bit to see how this all falls out.

    Yup, but some of the TV shows seem to get on NF awfully quick. This whole streaming situation is gonna take a while to get working so we can understand what's going on.

    I've called DirecTV to tell them if they don't have BBCA in HD by the time Doctor Who Season 6 starts, then I'm leaving for Dish Network.

    Just completely tired of D*TV and BBCA stonewalling.

    Well, today's the big day. Did anyone see it already? HD fans can get the .mkv file as well as the regular .avi @ rlslog.net or DemonoidME.

    I'm waiting for it to air on BBC America in ~3 hrs time...

    I really hate watching things on my computer unless I missed the airing and have to seek it out.

    Well, without giving away spoilers, it certainly DID live up to the billing of opening up with a shocker of a plot twist.

    BBC America can bite my left one. "Limited commercial interruption" my ass. ONE sponsor shooting ads at me EVERY 6 minutes is not "limited". Horrible choices for where to insert the ads, lousy editing...they had weeks to prepare for this, MONTHS and it was awful. Nauseating.

    They drove me right back to downloading the BBC UK versions online.
