One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

So I bought my first TV show from iTunes.  It was in HD.  I didn't realize that it also came with the SD version.  Anyway, I installed just the SD version on my iPad and watched the show.

Then I uninstalled it, and put the HD version on it.  I couldn't tell the difference.  Am I crazy?  I've tried the same experiement on my 42" flatscreen and couldn't tell the difference either?  Why should I pay the extra for HD?

Thanks,
Brett

To watch it on your small screen there wouldn't be a reason to purchase the HD I don't think. I don't know the screen resolution of your iPod but I bet the HD version is being down converted to match your resolution. Now if you're going to watch them on a HD TV or Computer Monitor at any time then you'll want to invest in the HD content.

I am with you.  I think there is hype.

I have a regular DVD, HD player (yup!) and Blu-Ray player.  All of them look exactly the same on my HD TV (1080p).
