I also downloaded a copy and saw the same thing. Also had a similar effect in this week's "Barry" on the theater background.
May head over to the C8 owner's thread to see if anyone over there had the same experience.
It does just look like the infamous near black oled processing issues. My take on it is that the flaws are present in the source material but some TVs are better at resolving the flaws than others. My E6 shows it in some material. Mostly broadcast stuff but the occasional Blu Ray also shows it. I had heard that the ‘7 and ‘8 sets has made improvements in this area so I’m interested to see that the problem still seems to exist.
Interesting you say you've seen it on some Blu-ray, because I haven't.
When it comes to Westworld Season 1 the HD version broadcast and on demand in the UK has some horrid near black macroblocking in some scenes. The UHD Blu-ray is clean as clean can be.
I don't doubt improved processing can "blur away" some of these issues, but the compression artifacts are there in the source.
