What's HD on C4 HD

Actually, not that much. Here's a list of all the stuff actually in HD on the new, Sky-only (for now) C4 HD channel 'til Jan 5:
  • Ugly Betty
  • Conquest of Planet of the Apes
  • Knights Tale
  • The Long Ships
  • Solaris
  • Breakfast at Tiffanys
  • Scissor Sisters at the Dome
  • Changing Lanes
  • Keane at the Dome
  • Sky Capt and the World of Tomorrow
  • League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
  • League of Gentlemen - Apocalypse
  • The King
  • Explorers
  • Sexy Beast
  • Oldboy
  • Motorcycle Diaries
  • An American Tale
  • Amy Winehouse @ the Bush
  • Night World
  • Mika live in Paris
  • Golden Voyage of Sinbad
  • Home Alone 2+3
  • Bridge on the River Kwai
  • Vice Versa
  • Golden Child
  • Fantastic Four
  • Harry and the Hendersons
  • My fake body (doc)
  • The Dish

What I find amazing is that, apart from the stuff in italic (which is almost all live music shows) there's nothing there except films. Very disappointing if you ask me - I would have expected a lot more genuine HD content given the prestige of it being the first of the main channels to simulcast in HD. Let's hope they add considerably more before we get the channel on VM.
