Is freesat going all betamax on us?
Like many others, I bought into freesat on the back of the the excellent kit available and the promise of superior picture quality - not least through the increasing number of HD channels that would be coming our way sometime soon...
Almost one year down the line we are still stuck with the one HD channel (ok call it one and a half if you include the occasional offering from ITV) on which the quality is getting worse - BBC slashes bit rate thread - and the news that we now cannot get C4HD although they are out of contract with Sky because there is no room.
So if freesat is crippled by a lack of satellite space to transmit any more channels in HD unless they reduce the quality of HD to near SD, the point of freesat is?
Yours slightly peeved (although the foxsat hdr is actually quite good)
