Worlds First HDTV Show for the Internet

Since getting a HDTV, the search for high definition content on the internet has been quite hard to find, however I came across this new site which boasts to be the first online HDTV show:

mariposaHD is the world’s first High Definition TV series distributed directly on the Internet. And it’s free. mariposaHD is recorded, edited, and distributed in the full 1920×1080 pixel resolution of the 1080i standard. We distribute mariposaHD using the BitTorrent peer-to-peer software. With a broadband Internet connection, you can download and watch mariposaHD on your PC, your HDTV, or even a video iPod.

mariposaHD is produced by four ordinary guys who quit their jobs, moved to South America, and decided to make a TV show. We film everything with HDV camcorders and edit the video on a PC in our living room. You can download mariposaHD for free from our Web site, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from anywhere in the world. mariposaHD is distributed under a Creative Commons license which means that you can keep it, copy it, and share it forever as long as you don’t charge for it or alter it.

There is a 720p version of the video as well and although some of the scantily clad women scenes seem to go on forever ( I wonder why that could be! :) ), there are some very interesting nature and landscape scenes as well.
