BBC’s sets need upgrade for HDTV


July 24, 2009

High definition television is the next thing to make the viewing experience just that little bit better, but as the roll out of HD channels continues, it seems that the picture, which uses five times as many pixels as normal definition, is causing concerns for the BBC.

It turns out that the sets used by the BBC are not looking too good in HD, in fact they are considered to be a bit tatty.

With nineteen million HD TVs being sold so far, the BBC is going to have to spend a lot of money on fixing the problem.

Already it has become known that the set of the Apprentice had a makeover to the tune of £40,000 in order to look good in HD, while over in “Albert Square” the set of Eastenders dates back to 1985 and is in need of a major revamp.
