- Good point about the quality. Though how much will it differ from digital cable quality? Tech question, yes, but still you have a valid point.

Uh... why do that? HDNet's picture, sound, and viewing experience (uncut for time or anything else) will be of a far higher quality than BBCA. Considering it's only going to be a week or so behind BBCA, I'd definitely wait and enjoy the uncut, higher-quality version on HDNet.
Purchasing the DVD's is s separate decision (standard def DVD's still don't look as good as HD), but if you have an HDTV, both channels, and have waited this long, I'd definitely wait for HDNet.
Pinpoint customers who are looking for what you sell.

I'm not quite sure what to compare it to, but it's more noticeable than the difference in quality between DVD and VHS.
Also, the show will be uncut.
