Re: TV Japan in HD

Why would anyone still offer SD quality programming when the whole country off the air is HD now?

The quality difference from SD to HD or even UHD is incredubile.  SD is 50 years old technology . Come on Comcast you can do better.  All other providers make the TV Japan HD quality services available. For the price of 25/month I would expect you to be offering UHD by now as they do have it.

This , believe it or not, will be the reason I will switch away from Comcast back to FIOS.

One more thing. Since I am not on a contract that will be sooner than what you care about.

Hi KCC, I did follow their link and submited my comment about the lack of TV Japan HD.  The SD picture quality is horrible. It is like a soap opera tv on a bad rainy day using those old CRTs.  Horrible. And that low quality service for $25?  Who do they think they can fool around. Looking for alternatives even if it means switching to alternative Cable /Fiber providers.  Oh how good competition is.

Hoping to get some momentum. People have to pay $25.99 per month to view a "premium" channel in SD. It makes absolutely no sense that Comcast cannot broadcast TV Japan in HD when their competitors already have this available.  Please Comcast, revisit this and upgrade to the 21st century!

I think we need to starta new message.  This chain is considered answered by their expert answering your first post.  It seems they don't read beyond the first message.

Also I suggest looking at alternatives such as Amazon Prime Video if you have prime. There are  lot of documentaries/video options in Japanese to select from in HD and even UHD.
