    This is old news and I'm surprised your area still had MPEG2 programming.

    MPEG2 looks better but MPEG4 has less bandwidth.  However, via a cable box, most people can't tell the difference between the formats.

        It's old news for the cable-TV industry because providers want to increase the efficiency of their networks.
