Looks like the HD episodes are now playing there. Watching "The Naked Now" currently.
I actually wondered if that may happen when I noticed they were going back to the first season with a big marathon. Very cool. That means CBS just got a big check!
EDIT: I notice now they are actually showing episodes from seasons 3 & 4 later. I could've sworn I saw it in the guide as an almost full showing of Season 1. Hmm. Maybe that's coming up.
They show enough TNG that this seems like a sensible move. Not having bought the blu-rays it will be fun to watch some of these.
Nevermind! See Bill's post #6.
I've got "Reunion" set to record. See if its in HD in the morning. I'm betting only the season one episodes are in HD.
Looks like they are doing season one in four-hour blocks on Tuesday nights. Next week kicks off with "The Last Outpost".
Could be the case. I'll update the list at 1:00am if that's what's going on.
EDIT: Looks like you're probably right, Bill. The BBC America site only has a "NEW" tag on the S1 episodes in their schedule. Oh well...
About damn time the US gets the new HD masters airing. And only a few hours ago SyFy was airing a few S1 episodes, but in the old SD masters.
Also, nice to see they're not cropping.
Oh Lord, Code of Honor! Guess Crusher couldn't be bothered with that guy who caught the gauntlet. He wasn't worth blowing their ruse.
Sorry, don't mean to derail the thread.
These episodes are almost too colorful now, it's amazing how much more vibrant it is in HD.
I own the Blu-ray's, but tuned in for a while tonight. They are stunning.
Yep, no such luck. Only Season 1 is HD for now, it seems.
I wonder if it has to be two years after it was released on blu, much how like films are never aired on channels like these until they've reached a certain age. Curious that they jump to S4 episodes when they could just show more S1 episodes in HD beyond "Code of Honor".
Thank you, BBC America, for bringing us "Coupling"!
(Who knew that existed ... ?)
I did. And yes, it's bloody brilliant. "I have the key to Paradise, but I've got too many legs!"
I saw the listing for Encounter at Farpoint and wondered if they'd finally be in HD.
Looks like Amazon Prime now has season 5 in HD too.
I wonder if this means that the HD episodes will start making their way onto Netflix?
I remember when they attempted to remake that here in the states. It died a quick death.
I'm relieved they gave up on Ab Fab.
How long ago was that?
I think their schedule now is 95%
- Doctor Who
- Star Trek The Next Generation
- Top Gear (or programs with Top Gear hosts)
- Gordon Ramsay Programs
- Graham Norton
Probably not for a while. I think Amazon has exclusive streaming rights.
Besides, Netflix HD means nothing as long as the service providers are throttling the bitstream. I use AT&T, and I have a healthy downstream of 6-9Mbps, and Netflix struggles to stream beyond 480p. It shouldn't be an issue after Netflix is forced to bribe every ISP, like they recently did with Comcast.
