Why are we speculating about a channel that doesn't even exist, nor will it exist for at least a couple of years, if not more?

This whole Q&A is silly. To answer it objectively,
|at a minimum you need to have a sporting event shot in both native 1080i and 720p, displayed on a set that can handle both 1080i and 720p natively.|
|Since people of such setup is very few, and there isn't any 720p sports around to compare,|
|the poll will not get you anywhere except may be a breakdown between people who have 1080i and those who have 720p capability.|
|Since my TV is 1080i, I only wish all HD broadcasts are 1080i. 720p is not going to improve my viewing experience no matter what, at least 1080i gives me more resolution.|

...At this very moment? No. But many people have seen native 720p football from ABC. No? But as I've indicated, such comparisons are only part of the story.

I would bet 10:1 ods that the 1080p you saw was not 19mbps if the frame rate was still 60 frames per second.
You can always lower the frame rate and deliver 1080p at 30 frames per second but then you get into situation that occurs with sports movies where the action is crisp because of the longer exposure time and slower frame rate.

It was a prototype system developed at Silicon Light Machines using RGB laser projection, utilizing highly modified broadcast HD VTRs. A few months after I saw the demonstration SONY Corporation purchased the rights to the patents and technology.
