[TV] HD on Fibe?

I have Fibe TV being installed on the 23rd... just curious if the HD is 720p or 1080p?

Everything on Bell Fibe is 720p

There are no channels that broadcast in 1080p. Channels that broadcast in 1080i are re-encoded in 720p.

Thanks for the reply

So no channels anywhere are broadcast in 1080p or just Canada (or North America?)

Some providers offer VOD content in 1080p. There currently aren't any channels that broadcast in 1080p as it has very high bandwidth requirements.

Bell Satellite has 1080p "on demand" pay-per-view movies (at the 24 frames per second cinema standard instead of the 60 FPS TV standard) that are downloaded to a separate (virtual) drive on their HD-PVRs. As do Dish and DirectTV in the US.

I don't know of any "live" 1080p broadcasts in North America. Though I'm surprised providers aren't switching from 720p60 to 1080p24 for movie PPVs in general, since it would use less bandwidth (though I suppose compression techniques could change that math).
