I've read many great things about the next generation high-definition optical disc format(s) and, indeed, D-Theater (HD-VHS) and I'm getting quite excited. Okay, maybe I'm not that excited about D-VHS but that's a whole different thread. Anyway... We in England are WAY behind in HDTV technology. None of our broadcasters are transmitting in HDTV and, to my knowledge, there isn't a single HDTV on the market. Can I assume, therefore, that a high-definition pre-recorded media format is a seriously long way off for us Brits? I mean HDTV would have to catch on first, right? And J6P is even less inclined to embrace new technology over here than in the States. Virtually nobody here has even heard of laserdisc! "Gosh, it was the size of an LP?" is generally the response I get. Does anybody know what the future holds for us? John PS. At least I can take some comfort in the fact the Doctor Who returns to our screens next year (albeit in boring old low-definition)!
