View Full Version : HD TV shows vs SD TV shows - quality difference?

Hi everybody,

first of all, sorry if there already is a special thread dedicated to this topic - I searched, but didn't found it.

I just downloaded the free 30 Rock episode in HD together with the SD version - to be honest, I am really disappointed in the quality difference. I barely see ANY difference - okay, the HD version looks a little bit sharper, but really one a very little bit. Perhaps the difference seems more clear when watching the files on a real HD display? Would be nice to hear some other opinions. As much as I'd love to buy TV shows in HD on iTunes, with this little difference it seems quite greedy from Apple to have to pay 1 dollar more per show ...

Another thread is suggesting SD=480P HD=720P
