    apologies if this has already been addressed, but i don't recall seeing movies on tcmhd being labeled as hd before:


    looking through tomorrow's schedule, there's just two movies listed as hd:



    could this be more than just a few stray typos?

    The channel itself is now HD and some shows are indeed in HD, some are in Letterbox and is the format the movie was filmed in way back when it was made.
