|wdreamsmaycome||hmmm, I guess possibly since CBC has broadcasted it in the past it's an issue of rights? (aka discovery hd has no right to broadcast it here)? Oh well, hopefully cbc will put it on again at some point!|

planet earth not on discovery HD in Canada?
I've seen promos for this on the SD discovery channel about it being rebroadcast starting this Sunday in SD and HD, but I can't see it in the schedule, I sure would like to be catching this in HD!

We Missed this originally, so I bought the DVD's on saturday
as a birthday gift for my wife. We Have been watching them
for most of the weekend & She's just thrilled with them.
Ive found the Pic Quality to vary quite widely over the ones we have watched so far from very good to amazing on some shots.
A good set of discs & worth the $56 dollars I paid at Bestbuy for the 5 disk SD set , Upconverted they look real nice, a Recommended buy in My opinion.

For those that missed any of it, parts 1 through 11 will be aired again on CBC starting June 10th: http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/planetearth.html
I'm looking forward to it as I haven't seen parts 1-5 yet.

|UnWell||I've heard so much about this series from our American friends. I eagerly looked it up on my Shaw Guide about 2 Sundays ago, and I was totally disappointed that it's not there. How come it's not shown in Discovery HD Canadian version?|

|StickyDragon||Ahh, I see they have come down since I last checked ($500). I'll personally wait until they are under $200 but it's good to see it dropping now. I am also kind of waiting for one of the 2 formats to die or a combo player at a reasonable price because I don't want to end up with the BETA model.|

|james99||HD DVD players cost less than 700 but you might be looking at the higher end model.|

I emailed CBC a while back about if they would replay this series in HD and got the following response:
"At the moment, no. It's quite likely that it will repeat on CBC Newsworld at some point soon, but that won't be in HD. You're best bet might be to purchase the DVD coming to stores on April 24. As you know, it's well worth seeing, the first program in incredible."
If I end up buying an HD-DVD player at some point then I will most likely buy this series, but the $700 price tag is a little too high for me.
