    Default PB Video Store Video Quality

    I downloaded Sherlock Holmes when it was free and quality was very good but I was out of town last week and needed to get my Walking Dead fix so I paid the $2.50CDN for the most recent episode and the quality is horrible. Didnt look great on the PB and have just hooked it up to my TV (only 720P) and it reminds me of a 480P YouTube video. Anyone have any experience w/ any TV series and the quality of them? Are they all low quality? 480P seems awfully low quality to have for a 1080P device not to mention pricey. Foolishly I had assumed it would be A+ quality and I haven't found any mention of the quality of the videos within the Video Store app which I find to be a bit shady of them.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Not an answer but another question about video store

    Can anyone tell me how long it should take to download a movie from the video store? I have experienced times from 3 minutes to 5 hours. Anyone know why this is?

    Thank you

    Haha.

    I have been keeping up with walking dead via BlackBerry video store as well. Not sure what happened on yours but I didn't notice a difference between it and the other HD shows I've watched on it.

    It's much better quality than the pirated torrents that are available at the same time. IMO.

    Thank you
    Your wifi quality and the video store server congestion. I have never had a movie take longer than 45 minutes to fully download. Basically, I have always been able to stream whatever I was downloading without any stutter.

    Have you tried other shows or movies from the store to compare?

    Nice to see more squash-the-walkers fanatics, heheh.

    I'd say the quality of this TV series is between DVD and 720p quality.

    I wish the Video Store would give us at least 720p.

    Also, my previous episodes are gone from My Library! When I try to load them again it wants more money, just like a zombie wants brains!

    Anyway, they should fix this.

    Thanks for the reply. Nice to know others are receiving sub-par quality.
