What is DOCOMO PACIFIC HDTV?
Take one look at HDTV and the difference in quality between high-definition and standard-definition TV is crystal clear. Standard definition broadcast television (NTSC) picture is constructed of 486 visible picture lines. An HDTV broadcast has up to 1080 lines, resulting in six times the picture clarity!
HDTV permits the transmission of a broader, fuller range of colors that extends beyond anything standard-definition television has ever been capable of, providing you with vivid, rich images. And when it comes to audio, 5.1 surround sound is superior to the stereo audio you get with standard-definition television. HDTV lets you hear every nuance in life-like fullness and takes the audio to a higher level by using an extended frequency response and higher data rate to transmit the 5.1 surround sound, resulting in more natural, life-like sound.
Do I need a new TV or is there additional equipment required to get DOCOMO PACIFIC HDTV?

How many HD Set Top Boxes or HD DVRs can I get?

How much does it cost if I need a service call for my DOCOMO PACIFIC HD Service?
