Optik 1080?

Is Optik 1080? Or is it 720? Was watching GlobalBC and noticed a friend's TV said the signal was only 720 resolution.

HD on a Telus digital box is 1080i. Interlaced not progressive, and not 720p. Still good enough for me, despite not being as good as the competition. The GUI looks prettier on Telus boxes.

Most broadcast TV is only 720. A few specialized cable TV might be 1080.

The TV could also show 720 if the STB is set to 720 vs 1080 in the settings themselves..

 

@NFtoBCis also right. The majority of channels out there seem to broadcast in 720p currently.

Hey,

 

All TV is currently only broadcast in 720p, some VOD may be in 1080p quality.

To clarify... are you saying that Optik delivers 720p for most stations?  My ATSC attenna receives 1080 for most local broadcasting stations in recent years.

Yes, Optik TV delivers broadcast TV in 720p definition.
