Again, apples and oranges. The bar owner has no access to (or doesn't
know how to tune in) high-definition signals. Neither he, nor his
patrons, knows the difference. That'll change over time.
If the bar showed NFL games for 16 Sundays on a big 60" 1080i screen,
and suddenly switched to (stretched) 480i on the same display for the
playoffs, would the patrons really not notice, unless drunk before
entering? Of course not.
