[quote=RonPyne;2076989]Hi. Many thanks to CDan and his informative reply. I suspected as much. Aussie now also has a good range of TV’s with built in HD tuners, but at the moment we have none. I suspect the MPEG-4 is far newer (and better) and they, (the TV’s with HD tuners) will come in due course. Maybe a far smaller market which also means we will have to pay more, until others catch up? Puts off buying a new HDTV set for now as I hate all the extra clutter.
Thanks also to Platinumsword. You are right, of course but I am not talking about the satellite service. That is not HD, although Sky starts its HD Sat service next month at an extra cost.[/quote]
I thought Freeview was offering the terrestrial HD in MPEG4, and for those that are not in range can get satellite HD in MPEG2.
SkyHD will be MPEG4.
MPEG4 has more flexibility and is more efficient.
