But not, apparently, Dr. Who.

Why does the ABC have a HD channel when it won't broadcast a HD version of a programme, when one is available?

Dr. Who is a high profile programme, and deserves HD telecast.

The (SD) Waters of Mars
By David Knox on November 27, 2009 Filed Under Programming Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars may be coming to ABC in a little over a week, but it will be coming in SD rather than HD.

ABC has opted not to buy a high definition copy of the special from the BBC, citing cost as part of its decision.

It will be upscaled on ABC HD but not to true high definition quality.

In a statement issued to TV Tonight, ABC’s Director Television Kim Dalton said, “Over the past few years ABC TV’s focus, resources and budget have been on our multi channel strategy.

“The development of our SD channels ABC2 and ABC3, along with iView have been our primary concern.

“However in 2010 we will be developing our HD strategy with the intention of moving towards a more distinctive HD offering.”

The special airs 7:30pm Sunday December 6th on ABC1…. and ABC HD….

(that's a quote from Kim Dalton)

I have strong doubts that the BBC would charge the ABC more if they asked "can you send us an HD tape instead of an SD tape next time?" ... but I have no way to prove this. I don't see it is any different to asking for an NTSC copy, or a 4:3 compatible version.
