also It getting strange as to how DVD formats is now different to the TV companies formats,
HD = Sky, ITV, BBC etc
Blue ray = DVD
and you need a Blue ray tv for the disks do you not? which is going to cause alot of people confused
You are very confused...
HD = 720 or 1080 line picture, rather than SD which is 480 or 576 lines
(You may also hear them described as 750, 1125, 525 and 625 respectively)
Any HD Ready TV sold in Europe will display broadcast HD and BluRay HD pictures.
Broadcast HDTV is, in the UK, nearly universally 1080 lines, whilst in other countries a mix of 1080 and 720 lines is available.
These are shown in Europe at 50Hz - i.e. 50i fields (1080/50i) or 50p frames (720/50p) per second - though the source could also be 25p frames (1080/25p or 720/25p) per second.
In America, Japan etc. they are shown at 60Hz i.e. 60 fields (1080/60i) or 60 frames (720/60p) per second. The source material could also be 24 or more rarely 30 (1080/24p, 720/24p, 1080/30p, 720/30p) frames per second.
BluRay HDTV is slightly different as almost all releases are 24 frames per second (as that is the rate movies are shot in), and thus replayed at either 24p or 60i or 60p, and not at 25p or 50i.
All HD Ready TVs will cope with 1080/50i, 1080/60i, 720/50p, 720/60p etc. Some will additionally cope with 1080/50p, 1080/60p and 1080/24p.
So bottom line - any HD Ready TV will give you an HD picture with Sky HD, Freesat HD etc. and a BluRay player.
Some HD Ready TVs with 24p modes will give an even better picture with BluRay.
I've probably not helped much have I?
