    I suspect this isn't HDTV as no BB supports the resolutions required to display it.

    It's the same as most modern BB's actually. My Curve has the same screen. But as I say the BB screens are a far cry from HDTV. Even so, I want to watch TV on my BB so it would be nice, just not sports. Maybe something more interesting.

    What I mean is, it's a little overkill when standard definition TV would be more than sufficient on a BlackBerry, or any handheld for that matter.

    I suspect that streaming in HD would not only lead to severe bandwidth issues, but would also melt down the battery. But hey, what do I know? I still have a plain ol' cathode ray tube at home.

    Again, it's not an HD capable device so no worries.

    The 9700 screen has standard definition. It just can't do HD.

    bb 9700 resolution is 480 x 360. so the best it can do is 480p. for that tiny screen....480p is sharp enuff for me. true...9700 won't get hd...but it will get digital signal. so it is sharp pix...no more blurryness like the old analog tv technology. u either get it or u dont.

    yes.i think supporting standard TV is good enough;and ofcourse any streaming media would have bandwith problems.
