See, I watched my aunt's HD TV back in December and I couldn't tell the difference. I thought that me of all people would benefit from a better picture, but maybe I'm just too blind to tell the difference.

Huh, cool. Typical that he won in Christchurch though.

Can't wait for China to clean up in the Olympics this year.

I may be wrong, but I'm sure it's sharper.

That's the only perceptible difference on my TV.

Honestly, I thought my family were just trying to talk themselves into believing it was a better picture. I don't even know if what we were watching was actually being broadcast in HD! (One of the Australia vs India Tests.)

I'm concerned I've led myself to believe it's sharper. But until I looked up at the TV and remarked "Holy shit that's a sharp picture!" I'd totally forgotten this game was broadcast in HD.

there are several factors. hd tvs themselves have sharper screens, so regular broadcasts look a little better, because they are just damn nice tvs. hd broadcasts on regular screens ian has said are sharper. put them together and watch hd tv and it is amazing.
