I am a DirecTV subscriber in the Washington DC area. Although I have been a HD DirecTV customer for nearly eight years, I am shocked by a recent trend I've noticed.
My NBC network and Comcast/NBC cable HD is of the highest quality. I've also noticed that ABC TV network has the about the worst HD I see.
Grey's Anatomy looks like it is filmed through gauze and with washed out colors. OUAT is the worst offender. I see the strange patterns in dark areas and it looks even more washed out that Grey's.
GRIMM, on the other hand, boasts a crisp colorful picture with crisp clean lines. I know most hate the soap opera effect (SOE), but with motion interpolation on it is a prime example of how the effect causes HD broadcasts to look like you can reach in and touch the people "inside" the screen.
P.S. Honestly not a troll. I just want to see if anyone else feels the same as I do.
