Just channel surfing between TV1 and TV3 news on Freeview. TV3 is outstanding in HD, but what's up with TV1 - is that SD?

ALL TVNZ studio playout is SD only, e.g., Breakfast, 7Sharp etc. FairGo stand in building foyer in order to have live program playout in HD.





Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

Embarrassing for TVNZ when anyone with a PC can play HD out to youtube and twitch with no worries at all.

There is light and day difference in quality. TV1 is a shocker alongside TV3 on my 65"

 

So, I guess Newshub has just got a reprieve in this household (-;

Overall, anything to do with TVNZ quality is embarrassing Period. Bring back the licence fee and demand better quality!

 

Mind you, TV3 is not much better (apart from more HD hours).

At least its not as bad as some of the small US tv stations that still have a workflow in 4:3 composite video for their in house studios. Only HD content is the network shows. I got a streamrip from someone and all the ad's were even SD 4:3. Ick.

I would actually be more in favour of offloading it before it is actually worth zero.
