Starz: UPCONV = OAR; HD = cropped?

that seems to be the pattern.

It's like they're mocking us :(

I cancelled my Starz subscription (Comcast) yesterday after just one week, despite the promotional price of four months at 1/2 off. I had subscribed just recently to see the "Kill Bill" films and was totally disappointed with the picture quality (which was NOT HD).


The monthly guide information showed perhaps 98% non-HD. Of that, maybe 2/3 was BAD widescreen and the rest was BAD 4:3.

Even the 2% which was shown as HDTV were largely the worst titles in the universe, and the couple of non-losers that I actually recorded and watched were BAD transfers. I erased them all, not copying one to D-VHS.

Shameful. If you just look at the list of movies they plan to show, it looks great. But the implementation is terrible.

They totally suck. If they didn't have LOTR EE's they would be worth as much as tits on a bull.
I get them for free for a few more months. Once I have to pay, bye bye StarzHD.
