    I checked out the Rugby Pacific Nations games on Saturday via GEM HD.
    It was slightly better than GEM SD, but compared to Fox League HD the FTA
    HD channel doesn't rate.
    Foxtel HD is far superior quality.
    With 8k TVs rolling out now, 4K FTA should be the standard, but that's another storey.

    Hah - trying living in an area covered by VAST. No commercial FTA main channels in HD, no Viceland in HD, no World Movies in HD (when it starts on July 1). Appallingly low bit rate main channel SD services on Imparja, Southern Cross ten and seven. 4K INDEED!

    Seems to be some inconsistency across the regions nationally.
    Here in Tas, 9Gem was HD from the start but reverted to SD a while back and 9HD became 9's single HD channel. A fair amount of sport is still broadcast on 9Gem in SD (EG World Cup Cricket) while infomercials are being transmitted on 9HD which I suppose makes sense to someone (myself excluded).
