    What frame rate was it shot in? 24p matches (closely) the film rate. How many frames per frame are wasted on 60p? Showing one frame three times then one frame two times then one frame three times etc seems like a way to waste bandwidth and introduce problems ... not eliminate them.

    If your TV only displayed 24 frames per second, it would indeed flicker badly. Fortunately, modern TV's can do tricks like take the 24fps signal and tripple it to 72 frames per second.
