Introduction
Resolution Steps

There are a few reasons HD quality may differ between channels, or even shows on the same channel

  • Programming is broadcast with different resolution and refresh rates - 720p, 1080i or 1080p

  • Some channels down convert picture when switching over to advertisements; not all HD programs are filmed with an HD camera

  • Older programs are enhanced for HD TVs;  this programming pre-dates HD technology

  • Some scenes within a program may not be filmed in HD, due to actor contracts or production costs

  • HD channels don't broadcast in HD 24 hours a day, due to production costs
