Hdtv Killed My Channel Surfing

I tend not to watch much ‘tv’ these days - it’s all about the dl’s. But when I do, one thing always bothers me:

HDTV killed my channel surfing

Channel surfing is extremely annoying now. On the web, we’re measuring page loads & user interactions in milliseconds. Yet every time I flip, it’s at least 1-2 seconds till the channel shows. wtf? this is supposed to be better. At least with the old tv’s, you could flip, fast.

Of course, this usually only comes up when i’m in a hotel.
