not if they use the low bitrates they do now... It really pisses me
off to watch NFL in HD on the 65" just to get annoyed with the huge
amount of compression artifacts. Its not as bad on my friends 50", but
its really noticeable at 65", then on top of that they do things like
CBS does with the overlays that seem like they just put them there to
make the MPEG compression chip go crazy.
Even ESPN does it. InHD and Discovery HD look pretty darn good though,
I'd love to get Discovery HD in 1080p
