What a difference between the earlier showing of The Stooges on 26.4, and right now, on 9.2.
They were virtually unwatchable on 26.4. I had to turn them off, because I couldn't stand it. They looked downright terrible. Every bit as bad as those high school basketball games did on Me-TV, way back in the early days.
The bit-rate isn't all that great on 9.2, either, but it's not quite as bad, and at least they're showing the new prints, so they come out looking much better.
Whenever I've watched the channel since it moved to 26.4, the bit-rate hasn't appeared to be much, if any better than when they had the ethnic programming on it (and I'm sure people remember how bad that was). It's clearly the worst-looking of all the subchannels.
