There are reports that the CBS Streaming Service All Access will be rebranded as "Paramount +" next year. Maybe they will make the HD version available then?

I just decided to log-in randomly with Paramount+. I hadn't checked in in several months -- before the re-brand -- and last time I did, MacGyver was still the blurry SD I remember.

But good news: It's improved now on Paramount+.

I'm not sure if it's what the experts would call HD, but it does have the reproduced logo during the intro/explosion, and the episodes themselves are clearer than I ever remember seeing them on TV.

Yes, they are using the new masters:

I wasn't able to verify if they actually stream them in full HD, though. At least on desktop, the image is kinda blurry and has lots of compression artifacts, so they either just stream a downscaled SD version or just use very low bitrates. It's possible, though, that they do this on purpose and that the image quality on mobile devices and connected tvs will be better than on desktop.

That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...
