I can watch DEA on Spike TV and the quality IS AMAZING


then I watch NBA ON TNT and the quality IS NOT EVEN CLOSE,


do these companies not use the same cameras?.



I don't know what type of HD camera DEA has but wow IT IS AMAZING

There's much, much more to PQ than just the camera, and for the record there are many different types and brands of HD cams. Each channel is going to look different due differences in broadcast equipment and how it is configured.

Because ****** bags want 'full HD in 1080p' man. Your sports, like NBA or NFL games may look better in 720p at a higher frame rate. Plus, if you are watching over cable, how do you know how many times the signal has been changed?

Who is your provider?


While watching NBA on TNT on Dishnetwork it typically looks very good.

Some providers will try to squeeze additional channels on each carrier reducing bandwidth which will reduce picture quality.

Usually, it's the other way around; filmed TV programs will look like DVD-quality, while live sports will look "amazing". As others said, depends on so much; native res of the channel, your setup, cameras used, personal perception, etc..

Film-sourced (24p) content like movies and episodic series requires less bandwidth than native video (60i) like live sports.


TNT-HD delivers its feed at 18+Mbps, which usually provides a stunning picture on high-definition sports. It sounds like you are getting significantly less than that with your provider. If your cable provider is recompressing their feed from 18Mbps to say 12-14Mbps, that would still provide an excellent picture on movies and series, but the quality of native video content (like sports) would suffer greatly.

again, whatever that show uses doesnt matter. by the time the signal from that master gets to your house, its converted, compressed, and decompressed many times.


you never answered you your provider is, that makes a big difference.
