Sky Sports

My TV package is via Virgin media which includes Sky Sports and BT Sports.
BT Sports games are in HD (free) but my Sky Sports is `normal` quality.
Has anyone else noticed the pic quality difference between Sky and any other channels showing matches?.
I`m pretty sure that they turn the quality down to encourage customers to pay even more by having to get their HD package. Several times I have watched a game on another non HD channel then switched over to SS1, the difference in pic quality is always more than noticable.

oh wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. I've seen all sorts of 'cons' going on with stuff these days. for example my internet supplier will offer an 'unlimited' download package for a week, then when you buy it, you find out its much, much slower than normal and it's deliberate. it will start off fine, then after a day notably slower.

I dont have it but NOW TV makes a lot of sense, pay for view rather an have ALL the dross of many games I am never going to watch like Champions League, I have no interest in seeing top four English clubs playing Carlos Kickabouts and the chance of us playing in it are remote. My only interest is West Ham, I dont even watch the other games on Motd!
