HD! I don't think we'll even get HD from BBC America. :-(

Hm, maybe I should back up a step there--when I looked on the website, the CHANNEL has HD capability, but that don't necessarily signify that everything they broadcast is in HD.


On edit: According to http://www.showcase.ca/showcasehd/, Showcase does broadcast several programs in HD; at this point, the site does NOT say that The State Within is one of them.

But it doesn't say it's not!

On re-edit: I e-mailed to ask.

It would depend on if it was filmed in HDTV. Showcase may air it on it's HD channel, but that doesn't necessarily mean you'd get HD quality. Fortunately the BBC is going this route for more of it's programs, and by 2010 hopes to go 100% for high definition.

Although I've looked, I've yet to see anything that says The State Within was filmed in HD. It may have though. I'm just not sure.
