Not really, just record it off SS2 and watch it later.

Agreed.  The new Doctor Who series and Top Gear are in HD 5.1 in the UK so it would be nice to see them here in HD.   I did see last Sundays Dr Who in HD from a download  plus the 1 hour special that was not shown here which is usual of prime..  Looked great in HD with DD 5.1

There is none, when you have MySky. Unless you want to tell anyone who will listen " I saw it live " Hell, I love my Rugby as much as anyone, but even the home All Blacks games I watch delayed so I can FF all the build up and half time breaks.

But I will watch it the next day at 6.00pm in fabulous HD with no ads while recording the TV3 news so I can watch the news later with no ads and while watching that I'm recording .......... Unless it is the September 11th 2001 part two - watching it live has no major importance to us.

The only problem with E! now is all the ads are in 4:3.  Not that I care, but just technically they need to sort that out.

I'd like to see Living Channel in 16:9, MTV, Discovery, History, Documentary...
