Beeb under fire over HD picture quality

The BBC is under fire over the quality of its HD pictures.

This morning's Independent reports that it has lost its pin-sharp pictures.

The problem says the paper stems from the corporation

lowering the bitrate of its HD encoding technology from 16 megabytes to 9.7MB.


The BBC has been accused of stifling the criticism by closing user forums on its websites that contained negative comments from viewers. Forums that have been re-opened have been bombarded with fresh responses filling page after page. Viewers who claim they have been "fobbed off" have contacted the BBC Trust, demanding that it investigates the problem.
