Dish Network 1080p Compared to Blu-ray 1080p (Verdict: Not Bad)

At face value, "1080p high definition" means 1920×1080 pixels presented progressive scan (all at once). But if a clip is 1080p that alone doesn't necessitate that it will look good. Just as you can stretch a thumbnail in Photoshop to any gargantuan size you like, so too can content providers give you ugly 1080p.

I have Dish-Net it's pretty cool.

it's just one of the perks for living in Canada. FTA rules!

I had dish network but it was plagued with connection problems (for me anyway)

Or have someone slap it in a remote location, beam it up to a satellite if weather is decent, then beaming it down into your house, still hoping the weather is decent enough. Now, if you leave in the north, make sure your dish is not full of snow.

First channel: Full bandwith. Then as they add more and more channel, they have to split the bandwith more and more between channel.

So at best, with ideal conditions, you get bluray quality. But so many things can go wrong, I'll still rent or buy my Blurays, thank you.
