    Gadget Show in HD would be awsome. The Thought of Suzie Perry in HD sounds rather apealing. :thumbsup:

    LATE NEXT YEAR??? :eek:

    Come on chaps, HD has hardly turned up out of the blue. Why so slow to come to the party??

    Surely the station providers should make the investment to get people watching their HD channels and therefore increase advertising revenues.

    Considering we live in a high tech age, HD progress is woefully slow. Is this a worldwide issue around investment or is just the UK that's really slow (ignoring any current recession issues of course)?

    In the meantime, how about the Gadget show being upgraded to SD ?

    Surely it is the very height of irony that a show which regularly deals in "all things HD" is currently processed to death with a dark "vignetted" look and flickery "filmic" effects. I'm sure they do something funny to the colour too. :(


    In the continued absence of Tomorrow's World, the only other show which covers similiar ground is the BBC's excellent "Click" half hour. But don't get me started on the picture quality of that !

    What a shame we no longer have a regular Tecnofile (sp?) on Sky News - especially if it could be carried in HD on Anytime.

    She's not looking so great in SD, I think you would be disappointed with HD.


    Somebody mentioned click, I only watch that for webscape (but not for the content).

    Probably because they are getting a free ride on DTT to provide a HD channel and ultimately for an advert driven business most of your HD viewers will come from your existing SD audience, that's not a great use for the millions required to offer HD to the UK.

    Even before the current economic woes the push for advert driven HD was always on the back burner, too expensive for too little return. The only sector the UK were well ahead of the curve was PAY HD via SKY, what they did in a couple of years and this last year has been impressive. The lack of HD from VM who include the old TW service is disgraceful, TW were the first broadcaster to bring genuine HD to the market yet very little has been done on that front.
