What You Need To Know About Spectrum HD
If you’re thinking about getting Spectrum TV, you’ve probably read online reviews where people are raving about Spectrum HD. It’s true: Spectrum Cable TV offers you crystal-clear images every time you turn on your television. This is HD content so spectacular you won’t believe your eyes.
And what’s even more amazing, all of Spectrum TV channels are available in HD. Think about that for a moment. If you’re getting the Select package, that means 125+ channels of pure HD goodness, including ESPN, CNN, A&E and HGTV.
If you’re getting the Silver package, that means 175+ channels of HD goodness, including HBO, Showtime and Cinemax. And if you’re getting the Gold package, that means more than 200 channels, all offered in full, glorious HD!
In short, Spectrum TV in HD takes the TV viewing experience to the next level. Say that you’re tuning in to ESPN for a big basketball, football or baseball game. You’d fully expect to see every detail of a player’s uniform. You’d want to see every blade of grass on the field.
And you’d want the fast, non-stop action to be very crisp and defined. That’s what HD promises – it means that you almost feel like you’re watching the game in your backyard, and not on TV, that’s how crystal-clear and sharp the image is.
The same is true if you’re watching a newscast from CNN. Maybe there’s a foreign correspondent in some exotic world capital. You’d fully expect to capture every detail of the scene. And you can, when you have Spectrum HD. You’ll think the newsroom is just another room in your house, that’s how crisp and direct the image is going to be.
Finally, what about Hollywood blockbuster films? If there are lots of car chases, bomb explosions and fast action, you’d expect to see all of it in glorious high definition, right? Well, Spectrum HD television delivers all this, and more. You won’t believe your eyes.
But let’s back up for a second and discuss the differences between SD (standard definition) and HD (high definition). There’s more to this than just a new name! With an HD picture, you get an image that’s 6 times (6 times!) sharper than SD.
Here’s how it works. Your TV screen is composed of lots of tiny pixels. In general, the more pixels per screen, the sharper the image. Well, SD screens top out at 720 rows of pixels. HD screens include up to 1080 horizontal lines of pixels. But that’s not all – there’s also a matter of how those pixels are activated. With the old technology (known as “interlacing”), the pixels are constantly being refreshed, at a rate of 30 times per second.
However, not every row is being refreshed, just every other row. That’s why some older TV sets seem to “flicker” – the human eye can detect that all the pixels aren’t being refreshed quickly enough. But with new progressive technology, every row is refreshed simultaneously. And it’s done 60 times per second. That’s why you’ll often see a small “p” next to 1080. Most people assume that the “p” stands for “pixels,” but it actually stands for “progressive.”
Right now, 1080p is about as good of an image as you can expect on today’s TVs, although new 4K television sets (with an astounding 4,000 rows of pixels!) are already here, and some channels have begun experimenting with 4K broadcasts.
What all this means for you, the consumer, is that your HD TV is going to be a phenomenal way to watch Spectrum HDTV content. There’s no need to convert an HD signal into an SD image, or an SD signal into an HD image. You see? Spectrum HD is the most innovative TV display technology available today, and it’s all done for you automatically.
Where things get really interesting is when you consider that Spectrum HD refers to more than just live, linear TV. In other words, you get access to more HD content than just the TV channels you watch everyday. That’s because ALL Spectrum TV content is HD whenever available.
Take, for example, Spectrum On Demand content. You probably already know this, but Spectrum On Demand offers more than 10,000 titles. Some older movies and shows you can’t always expect to be available in HD, but you can usually expect all the latest hit TV shows and Hollywood blockbusters to be available in HD. That’s why Spectrum TV offers 1,500 titles in full HD!
And you can always see when you are getting SD or HD content. You can choose to get an SD version of a movie or an HD version of a movie. Sometimes both versions are free, but it’s often the case that the HD version is slightly more expensive than the SD version.
You’ve probably experienced this if you’ve rented from Apple iTunes or Google Play – there will be an option to rent a movie, but the SD version of it might cost $3.99 and the HD version of it might cost $5.99.
But now you know the reason why the HD version is so much better. You’re getting a much more spectacular image. If you have an HDTV, it makes sense to watch HD content, right? You want to see the brightest, sharpest colors possible. If you’re watching the latest Hollywood blockbuster film, the brilliant HD picture quality is just going to blow you away. With Spectrum HD, all you need to do to get the "movie theater experience" is switch to HD using your On Screen Guide - then enjoy!
