WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DIGITAL CABLE AND HIGH DEFINITON TV?
High Definition has five times the picture resolution of digital cable which produces a far clearer picture. HDTV is shown in a 16:9 ratio, as opposed the 4:3 ratio of standard definition. Some HDTV programs also broadcast in Dolby 5.1 surround sound.
HOW MANY HIGH DEFINITION CHANNELS DOES SOURCE OFFER?
Our Digital Basic package has 236 channels including 46 HD channels. Our Digital TV Pack has 342 channels including 79 HD channels. To get these extra HD channels customers require an HD terminal and HD television. Source also offers On Demand movies in HD ranging in price from $7.99-10.99 each.
WHAT'S AVAILABLE IN THE HDTV PACK?
The HDTV Pack at $74.99/MO has 387 channels including 116 HD services.
WHY ISN’T THERE ALWAYS HD CONTENT ON THE HD NETWORKS?
The amount of HD programming available on each network is dependent upon how much HD content each network has at their disposal. Most networks now offer 100% of their programming in HD while others don’t. When it’s not available, the networks will broadcast programs in standard definition. You can tell which ones those are as they normally have black bars on each side of the picture.
