Falling Skies Definitely in HD
Readers of this site have questioned whether TV2 is airing its 8.30 Wednesday sci-fi drama, Falling Skies, in HD.
“Watched some of Falling Skies last night,” paulw wrote. “I see that the 2 logo is now down the bottom right but there was no HD logo.
THX1138 also suspected the network was airing the Steven Spielberg production in SD. “How shithouse is that?”
However, it turns out TV2 is broadcasting it in HD.
According to a spokeswoman: “Falling Skies was transmitted in HD (1080i/50) as per the source material.
“We keyed an HD logo at the top of the programme and on all baseline keys coming back from the breaks. [See images below]
“We are not currently adding the 2 HD bug due to a style change for our Christmas imagery on TV2.”
This is the practice TV3 has followed since it started broadcasting in HD.
