"Network" on PBS last night
« on: January 10, 2015, 05:18:38 pm »
The movie, "Network" was on PBS last night. I hadn't seen the movie since I watched it on VHS years ago, so it would be nice to see it again in HD quality. I turn it on. Disappointed with the very low resolution & quality picture PBS is broadcasting of it. Couldn't they get a copy clearer than my old VHS tape? It was filmed in 35mm, which would make the movie at least HD quality. You can probably even download a better quality version of it in about a half an hour. Maybe they got the K-mart $4.99 special of the movie. This is a 240-360p picture.

Below, comparison between the "made for TV" in the late 1970s version (left) to the internet version (right). Even on a bad phone camera, the difference shows.
