Default HDTV buyers get fuzzy deal, Cuban says

Speaking at a conference, the president of Denver-based HD.Net says high-def picture quality is being wasted, thanks to providers.

Post Yes, a squandered chance to revitalize an industry.

They are missing the boat... Here's an opportunity to stimulate the economy and invigorate the broadcast industry by romancing the consumer with dazzling imagery. But what they've been providing the consumer is more of the same drivel, while stuffing their pockets with more profits... I find myself surfing the web and watching TV less and less. My hope is that HD DVD's will be soon and cheap.

Thumbs up AH802........ I agree!

Todays technology has surpassed the ability of the 'average consumer" to comprehend how things work. But there will always be a few people who stay up to date , or ahead of the curve.
Unfortunately most of the people will be taken for a ride by the few people who hold power.
Being new to the "HD World".......I was surprised to see "OTA"
HD broadcasts.
It says Hd......... but is it ????
Don't be surprised if you see an end to that in the near future.
Free HD................... we can't have that!!.......... LOL....

Default Bad Move For Mark CUBAN

Why does Mark Cuban chop up the movies that he has on HDNET.Why can't he show a movie in it's entirety?

Thumbs up Reality

I'm still bummed that ABC dumped his reality show. How can anyone NOT like a guy who had a beer in his hand for every show???

Cuban also said at the conference that the biggest losers in all this were the manufacturers.

I am not connected to any broadcaster but why all the hostility? Is there something wrong with making profits in this country? The broadcasters are having to fork out a ton of money before they ever receive one cent in return from the transition. Television is free, thanks to advertising, and always will be so don't think it is going away. With an outside antenna in my area you can receive six channels of high definition which is not a bad deal. And it is all free.

I'm all for profits, wish I could turn over a couple million myself but it takes money to make money, right? Still haven't stumbled across my $750,000 in venture capital to kick-start my entrepreneurial dreams.

I dont wanna hear about corporate behemoths whining about the intitial investments and 18-36 months of negative profit margins until things get rolling. They wouldn't have gotten into the game if it wasn't going to eventually be immensley profitable. Word of mouth is still the number one driving force in consumer decisions, and the internet only makes peoples mouths bigger. If they start to shovel crap on the nightly broadcast, eventually the neighborhood is going to smell it.

I forsee the day when DishNet charges extra to deliver SD programming to the last few who are clinging ever so tightly to their 19" Philcos and Sanyos. Thats probably 10-12 years away, maybe more, but some day HD will be the majority. And you know what? Sat has been cheaper than cable in many parts of the country for years, and thats been one of their huge selling points. Cable keeps going up and up, but not Sat. They've needed a legit way to make a sizeable price increase for a long time now, and here it is. HD.

And if the performance doesn't live up to the promise, there are competitors. Thank God this isn't Microsofts baby, or we'd all be screwed. Maybe WalMart should get into the HD game. After all, they've got one of the most successful corporate global domination models ever seen by man. "Always low prices!" At least the intentions would be clear, then we could excuse the quality cuts... "Hey honey, the TV bill actually went down by 2 bux!!!"
