Format Examples  
Screencaps of various downloadable formats. From poor to ridiculous quality. Most popular shows will come in only PDTV and up. Less popular in PDTV and down. A very small amount of shows come in 1080p, including none of mine. If I could get Went Miller in 1080p I'd have no hard drive space at all and I'd have a hard time keeping my tongue in my mouth.



For a 45 minute program the typical file sizes are as follows:

Webrip: Various
TvRip: 350mb
PDTV: 350mb
DVDRip: 360mb
HDTV: 350mb
HR.HDTV: 700mb
720p: 1.1GB
1080p: 4.5GB
