Comet TV

Some of you may know but there is a new OTA channel popping up in many markets starting today.

Comet TV! It's a Sci-Fi channel and you can check to see when it's coming to your area here: (scroll to bottom of page and enter your ZIP)

http://comettv.com

The channel is already live for me and it's a nice addition for us OTA users..

If I get it, it will be 480i as a .3 subchannel. Even the .1 channel is 720p stereo.

SD feed for me as well but I'll still watch it if something good is on.

I found it interesting that a new national OTA channel was launched. I don't think it's something that happens often.. Hopefully we will see it in HD at some point and hopefully more national OTA channels follow..

I'm getting Comet here in Nashville on 30.3. It's SD but the picture quality is OK. My gripe is that, even though the channel is being broadcast in widescreen 16:9, only the commercials are airing widescreen -- the movies and shows are airing in 4:3! I understand airing old TV shows in 4:3 because that's how they were originally shot but there's no reason they couldn't air The Termination (which is on now) in widescreen SD. Cozi TV often airs their movies in widescreen. Movies! airs pretty much all their content in widescreen SD. I guess it's just a matter of whether the network wants to pay extra to license the widescreen version of a film rather than the 4:3 cut.
