If you see the quality of the 'regular' TV that the Beeb broadcasts in the UK, even if the source is not true HD it will be up there with what DirecTV call HD.
Speaking of which, anyone know when DirecTV will start carrying it in HD?

I think the title of the thread might give a bit of a clue!
Not so...just because BBC America starts broadcasting it's shows in HD doesn't mean that the great satellite in the sky will be beaming it to my converter box...but one can always hope.

Hopefully, it will be on Time Warner Cable as well. They just added the ION network to the HD tier, yet ION only runs crappy infomercials and old 80's re-runs. Nothing in HD. They can put BBC America in ION's spot.


:D

Just in case you don't get it, and the torrents still don't work out...;)

Excellent! Looks like Top Gear will be actually running at the same time as it is in the UK. I was hoping to visit the studio while I was in London and maybe sit in at a taping, but it sounds like they will be all done by the time I get there. Love Top Gear! I just found an old episode from 2003 that has Clarkson testing a Lotus Racing Green Elise, similar to mine. It's the one where he talks about running over a spider on the highway!

Top Gear on BBCA is always one season behind. That probably won't change, even with BBCA converting to HD broadcasts. The only way to get the current Top Gear season is via torrent in the US.

And the torrents work perfectly well, or you can watch it on a streaming link online.
