If you think about the number of full HD over the air services that are offered by broadcaster, then it will be definitely less. Also, there are not many movie channels come that broadcast full HD contents. The 1080p or the full HD capability is not that different from that of the 720p or HD ready capability. Between Standard definition and High defection there is definitely a huge difference. But between 720p and 1080p the difference is not much. What is worth noticing here is that there are many ultra-high definition televisions already circulating the market but it will take sometime before broadcasters upgrade their services and 720p televisions serve us better.
