    ATSC 3.0 Discussion

    It takes too much space and cost to convert everything to 4K. For OTA TV, I would rather have one HD and 4 or 5 SD, rather than 2 HD's. More content.

    ATSC 3.0 Discussion

    I care about pq, but not to the point to only watch HD. Content is my thing. I would rather watch something I enjoy in SD over something I am not fond of in HD, just for the pq.

    Anyone else cutting back their Dish service due to lack of sports?

    I'm not either. Not that hard up, as least as yet. The little I would save per month wouldn't be worth it.

    PQ D!SH vs Netflix

    The main reason I have been with Dish for 21 years is for the variety and the customer service when needed is good for me. I have also Roku and Fire Sticks and the pq is better than Dish, but the content for what I watch is available with Dish. First off many channels Dish offers are not on...

    Back in the the days of Huntley and Brinkley or Walter Cronkite, where real news existed.

    Another Dish Network customer bites the dust...

    Then go to Direct TV. I would like to pay for less sports, not more.

    I have the Vip 211k receiver and both France24 as well as Euro News are there

    Euronews and americas voice

    Euro News reminds me of the old Headline News, Euro style. Not bad as you can keep updated quickly. With the virus on the increase, many want to know what is going on in Europe.

    varying Video mbps question

    Thanks again. I have no idea what equipment they are using. I presume the equipment would originate from the Portland station. In other words I should get the same pq that the Portland station is broadcasting to the translators as the translators are getting the signal to us via microwave...

    varying Video mbps question

    Thanks. This should be interesting. Most cities have ION with like one channel in 720p and the others in SD. I think most run 6 channels. How does the pq look for SD? I believe SF and LA have International channels that can run 10 channels. I cannot believe the pq can be good. I am reasonably...

    varying Video mbps question

    The Portland OR market is about to make a change with more stacking of channels. The old rule of solid Mbps was pretty self explanatory. The more the Mbps the better the pq was. Now they use a varying system. Example: 2.1 KATU 5-14 Mbps 2.2 METV 2-6 Mbps 2.3 Comet .4-4.5 Mbps 2.4...

    Live streaming will soon be irrelevant!

    I heard this morning who knows how many have it that have little or no synonyms of the bug? One guy said he didn't even have the cough, just a temp and tightness in his upper chest for a couple of days. He is still quarantined, as he was tested positive, but little issues. Also remember over a...

    Live streaming will soon be irrelevant!

    I do believe TV on Demand will be a lot of the entertainment, but there still needs live news, weather, and sports. Viewers want to see that. I like the CBS app as I can watch live news from LA, NY, etc.

    Live streaming will soon be irrelevant!

    People like some live TV. News for one. All this is temporary anyway. The virus will be either controlled or gone in time.

    Disney Plus +

    Yes, I saw Star Girl yesterday. I think Disney is more interested in the newer product as it is more popular with people under 40.

    Disney Plus +

    The rest of the Disney vault will be there in time. I have had Disney+ for 4 months now, but there is a lot of time left, like 32 months. Now if it gets 2 years down the road and we still do not have it, I will be upset. But Disney has said just about everything will be out within a year.

    Disney Plus +

    You can find Song of the South streaming for free if you look for it.

    Disney Plus +

    I too have been hoping for more old material to be added. I picked it up for $140 for 3 years. I expected more of the old library by now. I did hear within a year, the rest of the library would be available, but after 4 months, except for a few additions, the library is close to the same.

    DTV calling it quits (more or less)

    Very good point.
