It could be that a lot of people would be willing to do without recording capabilities, even do without many on-demand choices, in exchange...

Well, it's all just marketing oriented jargon. Remember when 1080p was called "Full HD" to distinguish it from mere 720p HDTV? Well, if "F" is used to represent "Full", then UHDTV ( 3840 by 2160 )...

I'd like to see more Formula 1 races, races that are on road courses rather than just an oval. I guess NASCAR does have Watkins Glen.

Yeah. You definitely need 1080i to get the full enjoyment from watching the race end under a yellow flag because the drivers cannot go a full lap without crashing into each other. Motion blur is not...

I don't understand why the subchannels cannot get stronger advertisers than they seem to be getting, especially for the "retro" diginets. I mean, the Catheter Cowboy is amusing, but I doubt that the...
