ie. the useful ones are being phased out. The only reason I would download something other than 1280 x 720 is if a higher resolution were available, or 5.1 sound, or some other improvement. I watch this stuff on my TV and surround sound system, the BBC seems to think we are all watching iPlayer on our mobile phones and nothing else.
