TV content is typically shot at much higher frame rates, and also a pretty high resolution. For example, House of Cards is apparently shot using a RED EPIC DRAGON (which, apparently, doesn't support lower case), at "6k" resolution, at 120fps.

My understanding is that RED cameras are very popular with creators, and I imagine content producers would want to make master versions of their content in as high resolution and frame rate as possible.

Looking at the few places that still sell plastic discs, it seems to me that there are more "TV content hours" worth of content vs movie content.

Thank you for the excellent information and discussion. I never did get 24fps as a "feature".

24fps is a "feature" for people who want to preserve the look of film.

Android rocks!

I appreciate that modern films and high end TV features will be shot at much higher resolution. It's quite evident, even at standard HD resolutions, that House of Cards benefits from much higher production values than most TV content. There is at least one TV series on now that looks like it was shout in wide screen SD, maybe on purpose. I was just pointing out that a lot of material will not suffer any degradation on BD. It's obvious that the opposite is true and I also pointed that out.

The last I heard, some movie theaters were using 1920x1080p for digital projection. I'm sure that has been improved upon for many venues but there's still no guarantee that a movie theater will be any better than a BD. In the end, costs and legacy considerations will guarantee that new, high end technology will be held back for some time.

Well, low-quality film. The reason why 24fps was selected was because back in the day, film was expensive. 24fps is where the frame rate just barely crossed over from "unbearable" to "bearable".

Even at that it was necessary to run the shutter at 48 f/s, so that each frame was projected twice. However, video at a rate that matches the source tends to look better.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Wayne is absolutely correct. Really pushing people to use pirated contents. Closely like the music industry. And now, see the result, the music industry has gone to the wrong people. And now their very very few good artist left in Music

I wouldn't go that far. I'd say that it's just pushing people to use streaming services. Not everyone will respond by using bittorrent, many will just be happy with Netflix.
