Default 1080p / 24p

so i missed the first episode of Damien and therefor had to record it on demand, fine no problem. but i was given the choice of HD or extra high HD, cant remember the exact wording, but one was better than the other and did say HD 1080p. so when i watched it the upper screen of my samsung 4k tv said 1080 / 24p. that has to be something new. offering on demand in 1080p. honestly didnt see any difference.

HD 1080/24P has only been on VOD or PPV from D* for a long time - The MGM- VOD Channel (1000) has always had Some - If you had a TV that supported 1080/24P you would have seen that before - Most TV's (early) only Supported 1080/60p

Blue Ray Disks are 1080p/60 That's why they always look better than Broadcast or HD Sat

1080i - The SIgnal is interlaced (i) 60 -Frames -Or 24 Frames-
1080p -The signal is pairal (p) -same as above

Your 4k Displays many more Pixels making the picture Appear sharper

The better picture on bluray isn't really anything to do with 24p vs 60p. Most movies are 24fps anyway, and so they are upscaled to 60p even if it's your TV that is doing it. . But the bandwidth on bluray is way higher than cable, sat or broadcast, so the picture quality is higher, there isn't as much compression.
