Re: 3Net debuts on Comcast :(
Fiber is the future. All providers have to jump onto this bandwagon soon to support the Bandwidth needs of customers streaming UHD channels and content.
UHD is the future. Just like High Def was, and is the standard now. I believe that once UHD is here, then HD becomes the new SD.
Standard Def channels will have to be eliminated. I personally can't watch SD channels because of the High Def quality. Imagine watching SD channel once UHD is here. UHD>HD>SD. SD would look extremely terrible to me, and normal viewers by then. I just hope that SD is completely gone by that time.
I also believe that HD digital adapters could replace SD digital ones we have now. SD STBs are a thing of the past, and all customers should be kicked in the ass to upgrade to 7xxxx series boxes ASAP because of MPEG4. If everyone is at least on the 7xxx boxes, FiOS can save space to add more MPEG4 channels.
the next move is to eliminate all SD channels that have HD equivalent channels , and then to eliminate all of them.
However, even though 3D channel are not that popular, they have to add them with content available on those channels, then more people will watch them, etc. ( like the hopefully new addition of 3Net, which is a must have IMO. ) I do watch HBO 3D ON Demand, as well as Starz 3D. All Premium channels should have 3D, IMO... and it should be def included.
Anyway, since UHD is the future with the new HVEC codec, and in 2015, STBs will be built with those chips in them, FiOS and all providers have to move their Butts and get this S - double H - double I - double TT .....started
Hell, they only have 3 years to get this up and running with working UHD channels being streamed to customers. Ruffly in the same timeframe as the 2016 Olympics.
