The trailer looks good - that's hope it is not a passing fad and switches to infomercials after a few weeks.

I hope so too. Apparently, it has nothing to do with the channels of the same name in America, but is owned by a guy in Sheffield.

Been reported that it may also be on
Freesat. If not, Freesatters will be able to tune it in in non Freesat mode with it being FTA.

My Source do not know if Rewind TV will launch on Freesat at launch.

My Sources says it WILL NOT BE on Freeview or Virgin Media UK from launch

Information was right as of April 16th.

Do you actually understand the technology at all?

If the channel is showing exclusively material that was distributed on analogue videotape for 625 line PAL colour, then that material has been digitised as 576i, the digital equivalent of analogue standard definition. It is a complete waste of bandwidth to carry that channel on a 1080i (i.e., high definition) stream if nothing that channel broadcasts is available as HD.

Even if the distributors originally sent out film prints rather than videotape, which was not unusual especially for material intended to be sold across markets using different analogue broadcast standards, re-scanning them in HD would be prohibitively expensive for a minor TV channel, even assuming the prints are still in a fit state to be simply scanned without any digital touching up being required to repair scratches etc.

And you think that means the content is actually in 1080 HD?

Chris, I was being humorous. Don’t take everything so seriously!

Even so, a low budget channel is far more likely to source content from a cheap original copy rather than fork out for expensive reprocessed copies.

Re: Rewind TV coming to Sky

Not to mention it will cost the channel far more to occupy an HD channel when the only thing being transmitted in HD will be the advertising it carries.

I wonder if advertisers pay less when their ads are only shown in SD? I do know that they didn't pay more when colour TV came in for ITV in 1969.
