Note: "P" stands for Progressive and "i" stands for Interlaced. Interlaced means that each field of a video image displays every other horizontal line of the complete image. This means that only half the image information is contained in a given video frame. Whereas a progressive picture has all of the horizontal lines in every frame. So all things being equal progressive video is superior.

Note: You might be interested to know that a frame of 720p contains more information than a frame of 1080ias 720p is the equivalent of 1440i in terms of the amount of information delivered in each frame. Obviously 1080p is even better, but high quality 1080p is only available from either Blu-ray discs or downloads from the Kaleidescape Store.

For reference here is a (mostly up to date) link that contains even more stations that in theory can be received in the Boston area:
