Does Time Warner compress the cable feed so it is not 1080?

Time Warner Cable does not control which format and resolution individual channels choose to use for their HD signal, said company spokesman Keith Poston.

“Broadcast channels and cable networks deliver their HD signals using two different formats. Most are at 1080i (notably CBS, NBC and HBO), but many are at 720p (notably ABC, Fox and ESPN). Standard definition channels are 480i,” he said.

“So individual networks and channels could account for the differences a customer sees and not anything that Time Warner Cable does to the signal.

“We want our customers to enjoy the very best video and audio experience, which is why we are always adding HD channels.”
