However, HD broadcasts are fairly standard now so it's perfectly reasonable to expect Primetime to offer it, especially considering what they charge.
An HD broadcast will have more resolution, and should have more depth and better colour rendition than SD. It should simply look better, although this may or not be important depending on what you are watching or how fussy you are.
Yes it is not important to me.
Now, if the picture was in black & white..? that would bother me.
HD is overrated.
I have got a digital HD TV, the picture is good enough.
