High Definition digital(see HD) that is overcompressed and no longer deserves to be called High Definition.

Typically this occurs when the video bitrate is below 14 megabits per second on a 1080i High Definition channel.
Nine HD in Sydney with a video bitrate of 11.8 megabits per second, WIN HD with a video bitrate of 11 megabits per second, Ten HD with a video bitrate of 12.8 megabits per second.

All examples accurate on the 31st of July 2005.

An extremely bodge and pretend implementation of High Definition, Digital TV. Still uses MPEG compression but has a resolution of 576 lines, progressive (p) and is usually chronically over compressed. Low Definition is still widescreen but only ever offers 2 channel Dolby Digital AC-3 surround sound.
LCN70 on the Seven Network Australia, LCN60 on Prime Australia, LCN20 on ABC Television Australia and LCN30 on SBS Australia.
