Smallville, Enterprise, Deadline! (Katie Daryl), and Space Shuttle launches were just incredible! Not to mention the political coverage on HDNet that was so poorly produced it became fun to watch (anybody see the coverage with Dan Rather and another analyst after the State of the Union address?). Oh, well.......
A bit of sarcasm here?
Honestly though, I tought it was nice that we were able to get the State of the Union Address in HD, hard to believe there was a pool HD feed and none of the other networks bothered with it. The last thing I watched last night was Enterprise ... the HD preview of the 1st season finale that I guess I won't see ... well, OK, I suppose I can wait for SciFi to catch up and watch it in SD.
Then again, watching the shuttle take off once in HD was probably enough for me.
I went through the new channels and was underwhelmed. IMHO, the movies on HDNet Movies were great! I spent all Saturday morning watching them, they had a good combo of good classics (The Magnificent Seven, Breakfast at Tiffanys, bunch of Clint Eastwood classics, etc.) and off the beaten path current flicks (Lost in the Translation, The World's Fastest Indian, etc.) that I like to see but probably wouldn't have gone out to rent. I went through the next few days on TNT HD and Universal HD in the guide and the best thing I could find was Northern Exposure, but honestly, I'm not about to start watching that again just to see it in HD. Maybe some ER or Law & Order rerun fanatic will be happy. I didn't see one movie worth watching.
Comcast SportsNet is good newsfor people who like Philly sports, but I doubt I'll ever watch it.
IMHO, for what Comcast is paying/wasting on the NFL Network alone, ... I mean wow, reruns of NFL games and cheerleader tryouts
most of which aren't in HD anyhow ... we could probably keep both HDNet channels and get even more channels.
Is "HDMEV" actually INHD? At least that's what's on there tonight?
Any changes to what you can pick up on Comcast over Clear QAM? I think I've finally found a tuner to get and drop the Comcast Digital package.
