    Someone sent me this link, figured people here might find it interesting.
    It's times like these, that I wish some wealthy buisness man, who's a big TV fan, would start up a small TV company, and show TV the way it was meant to be seen. Commercial free, Bug Free, and edit free.
    Either that, or too bad someone can't start a pirate station up and broadcast TV series released on DVD following the same mantra above... [​IMG]

    Well, I wanted to work in TV for a long time, but decided NOT to because apparently the presentation quality no longer matters.

    Or Mark Cuban's HDNet. OK, there are very brief and very translucent bugs, and the occasional short spot for Zenith HD Plasmas, but overall it's tv done right. Content is sorta limited because he insists on broadcasting only true 16/9 1080i, but they have gone so far as to send HD video cameras to Afghanistan and have hired Peter Arnett for their news reports.

    So Nashville has an alternative weekly?

    I was put off by the grammatical and punctuation lapses in the piece, but the information is certainly interesting.

    How truly obnoxious. Shouldn't there be some sort of compulsary warning when this is done? I have seen the warnings before on TNT and the like.

    Time Warner Cable Austin is not carrying KXAN's high def signal? Is KXAN the only high def broadcast station in town?

    The only one I can think of is for movie presentations. If they can time compress a movie with say 2 minutes in 2 hours, then they wouldn't have to edit out 2 minutes to sell commercials.

    Of course, they probably would time compress and still edit out 2 minutes and sell 4 minutes of commercials instead...

    My cable comapny carries two NBC stations, WSMV in Nashville and WMC in Memphis. It would be interesting to do a study on the differences in these two channels pertaining to this issue.
    The odd fact about it is that I've noticed quite a better picture on the WSMV channel. [​IMG]
