Well, that's true. If you need a new TV, you might as well throw in a little more $ and buy a HDTV, because it won't get outdated soon.

I think that the PS3 will really make HD better with the blu-ray drive and all the movies-series available on blu-ray. I still don't understand why there's two HD format with HD-DVD and blu-ray. Anyways, HDTV for the moment looks like a bad choice if you don't need a new tv. Once there's more HD chanels available for us and the PS3 hits the market, I could see why it's a wonderful choice. Especially with the new 1080p screens and the lower prices.

Some HDTV has a digital tuner incorporated, some has not. You have to check that, if not you have to buy a tuner and it is not very useful for now because there is only two channels broadcasting in HDTV in Montreal.
will there be more than two HD over the air chanel in the future?

TVA and TQS will broadcast in HD sometime down the road (they already have a license from the CRTC to do so). If you have a good outdoor antenna, you can get PBS HD from Brulington or Plattsburgh.

CTV, Global, TVA, TQS should broadcast in HD OTA one day in Montreal, but when... I think that we are still talking about years. You would be better served with an outside antenna and the American stations near the border (Plattsburgh and Burlington). Or with Illico/Bell Express Vu/Star Choice...

CBC only shows game in HD when Sens or Habs play at home.
Btw, does anyone here get HD over-the-air ? If you do, could you please tell us how to get it (where to buy tuner and antenna, how hard to install).

I watched like 10 minutes of the sens game in hd and it looked like crap. Can't beleive it costs that much for nothing.

The CBC HD feed isn't up to par with what I've seen on Sportsnet and TSN HD this season.

I agree.

TSN feeds and Sportnet feeds look so much better, and even they are not up too par with what true HD is supposed to look like.

But hey, HD over digital anyday.

oh well I always thought HD was a digital signal, I guess I was wrong. Anyways the best way to watch the habs is going to the bell center, there's no substitute.

CBC is publically funded so that's why their HD feed is all grainy and stuff. TSN-HD for hockey is incredible and the best picture I've found to date was on Discovery-HD which is easily twice to three times as crisp as the CBC-HD picture.

HD is digital as well...the video is just made and displayed in higher resolution in the first place. True HD is also usually widescreen and i'm going to assume HD is progressive scan. I can't really easily explain what progressive scan is but if you buy a DVD player the image quality is better if you buy a progressive scan DVD player over a normal DVD player...most if not all DVD players these days are progressive scan...its just usually a feature that is turned off by default because not all TVs support it. Basically a progressive scan picture at the same resolution looks better and less blocky.

Hd isnt allways progressive. Progressive is basically line doubling. for example, if one line of resolution is 2 cm thick, it becomes 4 cm under progressive, so you dont see any lines in the picture. Their really isnt much difference between progressive and normal resolution (Interlaced), atleast it's not night and day.

Getting back to HD. Hd can be either 1080I (interlaced), 1080P (progressive, INCREDIBLE!!), 420P, 420I, 720P, and 720I i believe.

Most Hd singals we get right now are 1080I, but sometimes downgraded too 420P due to bandwith.

it's 480p

btw I know what progressive means, it's 60 frames per second. While interlaced is at 30, but it's a little bit more complex I know. Anyways, I stand on my first claim, HD is crap.

Actually, HD is either 720p, 1080i or 1080p. 480p is outpouted by a plain old DVD player with "progressive scan" which is not even close to HD.

CBC broadcasts in 1080i.

So, is there anyone here lucky enough to watch playoffs in HD ? How do you find CBC-HD broadcast ?
Does some get HD over-the-air in Montreal ?
