More information about HGTV HD:
Well, I owe Comcast an apology -- the dreadful HGTV HD "no HD" is all HGTV's fault -- or, rather, that of its parent company, Scripps. Food Network HD is in the same boat. Check this out:http://www.tvpredictions.com/2008/04...-patience.html
There's interesting information in the follow-up comments, so dig through those if you want to learn more.
Bottom line, Scripps synched up the HD channel schedules to the SD channel schedules, essentially doing away with the HD version of the channels. What utter absurdity!!
Good Lord, are ALL
the people who have anything to do with putting television on the air absolute, complete, total MORONS?!?!???
I would say "a monkey could do the job better than these idiots," but that would be insulting to all of the monkeys on the planet. Sheesh!!
Ranting over, one thing I need to report is that I have NOT
seen any "stretch-o-vision" with the HGTV HD shows, and I haven't noticed a change in the times -- it's more like Comcast is still showing the HD versions -- but at SD quality. I just don't even know what to say anymore.
Oh, wait, I think I did
say it before -- heck, we might as well toss our fancy HDTV's out the window, and just watch YouTube. Sheesh, again.
