I only watch Blu-ray. It sounds like the problem is broadcasters using poor quality sources, colorspace conversions happening in their playback chain that shouldn't be, or simply someone screwing something up. Broadcast has a tendency to crop the aspect ratio of films - who knows what else they're doing.
If they were doing their jobs correctly, it should just look like a highly compressed version of the Blu-ray with no other changes, assuming it comes from the same source. (1080i60 should deinterlace to 1080p24 with good playback hardware)
Often times, broadcast is sourced from lower quality masters that were originally created for the DVD release, rather than waiting for a new master though - that's why there are a number of films which are available on HD broadcast but not currently available on Blu-ray.
