I think he was just lamenting that for a network with an actual goal of preserving cinema history it is disappointing that so many of their films look awful.
This is a screencap from Curse of Frankenstein. Unaltered right off the DVR file
Their overscan control bugs me more than anything else. Im set up for 1:1 pixel mapping and their films almost always have slight borders all the way around. I realize this film was 1.66:1 (like Disney's Aladdin) and would have slight pillar bars on the sides, but most films are completely windowboxed for overscan.
