I have about 5 of them and thought they looked pretty good. I don't have the channel so I can't compare them to what they looked like on the air but I wasnt disappointed.


If I recall correctly, most of these came out right around the time of the first HDDVD players (thats when I got my discs) so it's been a while since I actually watched them. I do recall thinking that they could've looked a little better (on the Get Out! DVDs, the beaches seemed to stick out as an area needing some improvement, but again these are just TV shows so I can't complain too much about that).

They haven't updated their website in ages. They don't have any of the Magnolia movies available on their site for HD DVD but you can order them from other etailers. Bubble, Lost City, World's Fastest Indian, Architect & District B13 are available right now on HD DVD. And of course, unlike their BD counterpart, all of them include a TrueHD track and VC-1 encoding.

I have the World Report Volume 1 discs. I wasn't too impressed with it. Sure, it looks better than the compressed mess you get with cable. But there are still some compression issues. It's encoded with mpeg2, and being one of the early discs I suspect they were still in a learning process.

I have the Get Out eye candy, very nice all the way around on that series, and District B13 is pretty solid. Bubble, was just too slow. Sold it.

I just noticed these on Amazon today. So I'm curious, why aren't these being reviewed on High Def Digest or counted as part of the total number of HD DVD's available on Engadget's weekly HDM totals, I don't even see any mention of these on the HD DVD main website. I was surprised to see a Public Enemy concert, Golf with the Playboy Bunnies, and just so many other titles.


Interesting. I might have to pick 1 or 2 of these up.

Strange that none of these titles are available on Amazon. They have a completely different selection of HD NET titles.

I'm not sure why they havent updated their store, but it's had the same titles listed (with nothing added) for about a year now. Disappointing as the shows were actually entertaining!


As far as the ones on Amazon go, be warned - I believe these are all just single episodes (20-25 minutes).. the ones sold on their website have enough content to justify the purchase (3 episodes each on the ones I purchased). I'd love to get some of the ones on amazon, but at the price theyre charging, it's just too much for a single episode of a TV show.
