I'm glad I'm not wasting $20/month on this piece of crap! :( I tuned in 2 different HD designated shows on "ShowtimeHD" last night and all I can say is "What a piece of crap". :no

The 2 shows I tuned in looked worse than a DVD. I was recording these shows on my my DVR and switching between "HD" and the PVR, there was very little difference, how sad. :mad:

I've heard before that ShowtimeHD was not up to par and this cements it for me, they should be ashamed of what they are trying to pass off as HD. :no

Not everything on showtime is HD as they have upconverts.

Goldeneye is just starting and looks pretty darned good to me. OAR, too.

I've been pretty impressed with the free movie channels so far. Of course, I don't get out much, so these movies are all new to me. I've particularly enjoyed Legally Blonde 2, and Bowling For Columbine (genius).

It's still a poor excuse for HD, they should not call it HD if they upconvert so poorly. :mad:

I did tune in to check a couple others and they were much better, but not "blow my socks off" quality. I had custody of my daughter this weekend so TV time was very minimal but I managed to record about 10 movies.
