By the way, to me, program content is much more important that whether the channel is in HD or SD. I never watch a program 'just because it is in HD'.
Right now, on TNTHD a program golf is being shown. And it looks ' very good' if not excellent. It is an improvement on much of TNT content. It still does not have the clean, clear, sharp look of the best HD. In all fairness, it is a very dull day in Montreal. Yes, TNTHD does live sports very well; if only they would follow thru on all their programming.
And, to me, HDNET is still a prime example on how good our present state of HD can look. And, to think, it is only presented in MPEG2. I believe the quality that goes into filming or taping a movie program is all important..much more so than MPEG2 or MPEG4. Yet, on these forums, there is endless discussion on MPEG2 versus MPEG4. One of my favorite programs is 'Sunrise Earth' and it is shown by HD Theatre and Animal PlanetHD Channel and both come thru (to my eyes) as about the same. The showings are excellent and quite useless to debate which is better. Just, sit back and enjoy.
