I’m thinking about getting MOD (Media on Demand), which is for digital television reception. It’s like cable TV, but the access is via broadband internet (ADSL or FTTB) instead of via 75-ohm coaxial cable. Also, with MOD, all of the video is digital, but even though it’s digital, it’s not High Definition. Most MOD channels only have 240 lines (480i) or 480 lines (480p). Only a few channels are HD (720 lines or 1080 lines).
I have a few questions about MOD:
How many channels are in English (For example, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, Travel and Living, BBC, CNN, HBO, etc.)?
Is the video resolution better than with cable TV? (With cable TV, the video looks very blurry on flat screen HDTV’s because all channels only have 240 lines (480i).)
Since the access is via the internet, does it make computer access to the internet much slower every time someone turns on a TV?
Are the porn channels censored with mosaics?
