Why won't Cnet Upload content higher than 720p?

by bwil1641 / January 5, 2016 9:03 PM PST

The fact that Cnet refuses to upload their content in anything other than 720p in 2016 leads me to believe they truly do not care about the content they create and how the users that intend to enjoy it. The fact that lesser funded and staffed "you-tubers" like mkbhd austin evans, david lee and countless others, just to name a few, are uploading reviews and unboxings in 4k if not a minimum 1080p is pretty embarrassing. Simply because they do not have nearly the same amount of funding as cnet and not only til recently have been recognized as "media". For these reasons alone I have unsubscribed from cnet. Although Cnet has great content with Brian Tong and the connected home series the literal dismissal of attention to detail is kind of off putting. Yes I know i am a small microcosm is Cnets massive viewing base but enough is enough... Attribute any grammar and spelling issues in this to frustration lol.

While I don't have an answer for you, because I do not oversee the video side of things, I will let you know that I have passed your feedback to the appropriate team.

BTW no need to flood the forums with multiple duplicate posts. One is enough.

I spoke to the CNET video team, and in the next couple of weeks CNET videos will be available in 1080p. I'm going to spare you from the details of why it was only available in lower resolution, but the good news it will be coming shortly.

So please stayed tuned!
