Is this FHD (1920x1080)?

 

 

 

 

According to Screenscribe.Net it is 1920x1080

 

 

All the channels I record in "HD" from Sky are 1440x1080, as far as I can tell.  I keep checking occasionally to see if it has changed, but no, they persist in transmitting that for HD.  I do not subscribe to Sky Movies, but I would not put it past them to transmit movies in 1440x1080 also.

They seem to missing out Nat Geo which would benefit greatly being in HD.

It's a Disney channel? They'll probably lose that at some stage.

Has anyone noticed this week that Skygo looks like is streaming in HD and at about 50fps?

i can personally confirm that some of the live channels on sky go are in HD, however it seems that the ondemand section is still stuck to the old flash version and therefore i am unable to see the content on firefox due to the flash requirement.

I don't think the ondemand is using flash but live is, it still seems to prompt you though which is weird, flash is about to go completely so there really leaving it close to the wire (on top of the usability nightmare it already is) I think neon is still flash as well?

Can some confirm that just because it’s HD, they don’t necessarily provide Dolby sound? Seems ridiculous, especially on Rialto.

Having seen Food TV in HD recently, I must say, I really hope it's coming here. It's SO much better.

OMG that would be heaven :) Think of all the inspiration she would get and how you would benefit..

 

Now that I think about it, perhaps I should have playboy channel on all day :)

I am also personally struggling to find 5.1 audio. Even on the sports channels, there doesn't seem to be 5.1 on the rugby anymore and I know for a fact that it used to be. I feel that my home theater setup which is used for sky is being wasted.

Also no knowledge of any other HD channel upgrades currently.
