  1. If last night was anything to go by, Supernatural on 2 will not only be in HD but in 5.1!

  2. Thanks, Adam. Appreciate the heads-up. If only TVNZ were as interested in promoting its HD content as readers of this site! Have yet to receive official confirmation from TVNZ of its 5.1 implementation but will update listings once I do. Presumably The Vampire Diaries, Fringe, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, The Mentalist, Body of Proof and Criminal Minds will all benefit.

  3. Supernatural was in HD 5.1 on Friday 9th, sound was disappointing compared to TV3’s surround quality and even the surround on TV One’s rugby coverage, with little surround action.

  4. The rugby was a good opportunity to compare the audio and video between TV3 and TVNZ (TV One, anyway). I recorded the TV One coverage and was watching the TV3 delayed broadcast, and comparing the same parts of the game. TV3 is definitely better for both. TVNZ has edge enhancement on the picture, and the sound doesn’t have the bass or treble that TV3 has.
