WHY 720p KINOS SHOULD DIE AND NEVER COME BACK!

>downloading kinos in 720p
>2024

This is not a real resolution standard like 480p was. It was just an inbetween for when the technology was new, hardware wasn't powerful or cheap and companies had to make HD more affordable to consumers, so they pushed 720p for people who couldn't afford to go full 1080p.
This is why there's no 1440p files or TVs but only 4K files and TVs. We have the technology to not need an inbetween resolution. Everybody can play 4K now, even with a $20 box the size of a deck of playing cards. 720p is always bit-starved crap, even when it comes from streaming companies.

Death to 720p!
If you're that desperate to save space, just download 1080p x265 files.

    I watch everything on a 27" computer monitor. 720p is perfectly adequate for me.

    I dont think that's quite true. IIRC under the ATSC 1.0 standard which was used by cable and broadcast TV 1280x720p / 60hz (59.94hz) was one of the supported resolutions. ABC and ESPN still use it I think. The rush to useless 4k is mostly a waste of bandwidth since you probably cant tell the difference between 720p and 2160p on most TV screens at normal viewing distance.

      FUN FACT: the vast majority of cable / internet TV “HD channels” are 720p signals, very few are 1080i (none are 1080p because that requires significantly more bandwidth). Your TV may upconvert to 1080 (or 4K if you have a 4K tv).

      Ironically, OTA (over the air) digital signals are 1080 .. so a good antenna may get you a better free signal than your paid cable tv.

      Streaming services are a bit different. As and

      Correct. Bitrate is important.
      It's why """4K""" on streaming services looks worse than a standard 1080p Bluray.

      mentions. Bluray and 4K discs are absolutely superior to streaming or broadcast.

        Yeah but OTA channels have almost zero content. Even free ad supported apps like Tubi offer more content than what an antenna will get you.

      Nice get and based post. I’d rather watch a clean high bit rate lower res file than a high res one that’s riddled with banding and macro blocking. I’ll never understand the people who make 4K HDR encodes of a movie and the file size is 3-4 GB. If I wanted to look at a watercolor painting I’d go to an art museum.

              everybody understands it, dumbass. the issue is that people don't care about bitrate and only download 720p YIFY because its the smallest and that's part of why public torrents are shit

      The QxR ones are great. You're thinking about the YIFY'd x265 crap from RARBG.

    I use 720p 'cuz i'm on a shitty laptop
    speaking of, i've got it connected via hdmi to an older, actually heavy, flatscreen TV, and i have to keep windows out of fullscreen because it overscans and i have no idea if that's just an inherent flaw or i'm moronic

      most tvs had a setting to turn off over scan so you could hook them to a computer.
