But I can’t receive mpeg 4

…does not automatically mean HD.

MPEG-4 is an encoding technology - it’s how the networks can fit multiple channels into one digital television signal. MPEG-2 is a much less efficient method of this, which is why all of the high definition (HD) channels (which require more bandwidth than standard definition (SD)) use MPEG-4.

In some cases, networks choose to broadcast SD channels in MPEG-4 - in metropolitan areas, this includes 7Food Network and Racing.com. Prime have chosen to broadcast 7Flix in MPEG-4 in order to fit in additional services - namely ishop TV.

doesnt make it hd , yes it is in mpeg 4 but its not in hd , hd is 720 and above

But it’s still annoying that I have to use a set-top box to view the these channels

buy a new tv then, simple.

Good one. But it’ll probably last 7 days.

Even though TVs are comparatively cheap these days, $300 is still A LOT of money for some people.

I got a 55 inch from Aldi two and a half years ago and have had no problems.

I got a 43 inch tv for 1000 dollars last year, that’s not cheap, it is a Samsung.

Even back in 2016 my 32 inch costed me $450.

But our old LG 32 inch from 2009 had no problems with MPEG-4.

Money doesn’t grow on trees. Not everyone makes six figures. People have responsibilities which take rightful priority.
