Just report it.

Once you speak to him, he knows who you are and who knows what will happen then after he's arrested.

It's best dealt with anonymously eg report it through Crimestoppers.

That way,...

Cheaper tv's don't tend to make as good a job of stretching pictures as more expensive ones. I'm presuming the expensive ones probably throw in some interpolation and...

All the more reason why the position of native SD and minimum broadcasting standards generally need to be reviewed on Freesat / Sky.

Freeview is different because there's more SD boxes / users and...

It's no different to HD. When HD sets 1st came out, 42" cost more than 5k.

Prices come down with economies of scale so the more sold, the cheaper they become.

As for 4K being a flop, that could be...

Ah OK. Good point. So it is possible then to have SD and 4K co-existing from a broadcast perspective. I guess that gives so excuse for minor channels not broadcasting 4K / 8K to continue to broadcast...
