CBeebies HD…….. eh?
CBebbies is probably the worst looking SD channel at the moment. Anything that gets rid of the compression halo round the logo offending my eyes at 6:00AM when i’m hungover with a wide awake 2 year old has to be a good thing.
Plus, I quite fancy Nina, so better definition of her Neurons will be welcome.

CBeebies SD looks fine on my fairly ancient Humax Freeview box by the way.
some of the Freeview and iplayer SD is awful, all those colours and textures are hard to encode at a low bitrate.
So how will cramming HD into a freeview signal be any better? Do the HD channels get given more bitrate or something?Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
The humax hd box is a lot better than their non hd boxes, so deffo a good upgrade.
Yeah I was quite tempted by their YouView box for the simplicity of watching catch-up tv, but I gather it can’t access video on NAS drive or networked PCs, whereas I believe some other boxes (including Humax ones) can.Posted 4 years agostilltortoiseSubscriber
I appear to be one of few who are unimpressed with HD, or more to the point I’m not so disappointed with SD to long for HD. I can switch from an SD broadcast to the HD broadcast and not really notice any significant difference. Am I getting higher definition SD than you lot? 😀
Semi-serious question actually. I wondered if because I have a Freeview HD tuner in my telly-box, there is some upscaling of SD broadcasts. The Freesat box upstairs is worse quality, but it’s a much older (and smaller) telly too.Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
All the content for the major channels has to be filmed in hd already, whether its produced inhouse or by independents.
Kids tv is more visually inventive than the stuff us groan ups watch so there’s more for hd to see. Plus, kids only sit about 2ft from the telly.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t know the technicalities, but SD digital TV appears to vary greatly from channel to channel. BBC4 always looks OK to me, but CBebbies and some of the ITV stuff looks hideous. It’s not night and day but HD deffo. looks better to me, apart from when it’s on in public places with the image sharpened up it’s ass and the contrast set to ‘Vivid’ :(.Posted 4 years ago
