    People's...
    Are there any official CBS apps for BB or for the live stream watchers?

    According to the CBS website, the streams are "multi-device/multi-platform" and they specifically state that you can watch on iPad, iPhone, and select Android devices. It's unclear if there's an app or if you just watch from a mobile website.

    It was censored for language, so we got constant silent breaks rather than bleeps. It makes it totally frustrating and useless for me.

    Well...the show is still in SD. F*ck you CBS. I've recorded the first episode but I'm really on the fence if to start watching. I haven't missed a season but that is 3 nights a week I'd have back and it really irks me that it is still in SD. It litterally takes up like half of my TV screen.

    Anyone come across a link anywhere which explains why it's still in SD? It makes no sense to me.

    I've never heard any CBS response, just internet mumblings about HD being harder to edit or storage space or some other BS.

    The fact is that this is a Prime time, major network show, on 3 times a week....and is still in SD.

    Seriously, is there ANY show on ANY major network that is on in Prime time that is NOT in HD?

    Here is an interview from 2010 where the HD explanation is what the internet rumors say.

    Look for the question 'Whether the show will ever be filmed in HD'.

    Which of course is total BS because BBAD was in HD on Showtime for at least the last year (that's one of the reason people are so upset about it moving to TVguide channel). I'm not sure when it started in HD but it might have been even longer.

    Well the Showtime feed wasn't edited , that is where the issues is/was, but that excuse while somewhat valid in 2010, in 2013 is not a big deal at all, storage is cheap, and all post/editing equip handles HD easily.

    It's also three years later, and the fact is, those issues shouldn't exist anymore. Storage is cheap, cameras are cheap. Heck, don't sports teams archive LOTS of HD content every day, and they have professionals to edit and analyze the tapes 7 ways to Sunday. Either they are cheap or lazy.

    sweet home, al
    i think you may be confusing an sd picture upconverted to hd as an hd picture. sure, it's worse on tvgn in sd, but it was never in hd on showtime, not even on dtv, and never has been.

    I think they're just cheap based on the quoted explanation. Sure they can afford it, but why bother if people keep watching it in SD.
