A Heroic Failure

The BBC is the flagship High Definition broadcaster in the UK – with HD programming available on both Satellite and Cable services.

Why then is the first episode of the new season of one of their flagship shows not being shown in HD?

I am of course talking about season 3 of Heroes.

The first episode is being shown on BBC2 on Wednesday 1st October.  The second episode is then being shown immediately afterwards on BBC3 and BBCHD simultaneously.

One has to wonder what the BBC has against Heroes fans who wish to watch the whole season in HD.  Why do we have to watch the first episode in Standard Definition?

This is almost as bad as ITV skipping the second episode of Pushing Daisies entirely.
