When Channel 5 show boxing the picture quality is very good in SD. Same for when ITV showed boxing. Primetime transmissions should be just as good, but they are a bunch of cheapskate amateurs and they compress their signal to buggery so it looks like you're watching a moving Monet painting. The web stream is shit too, and for the same reasons.
If they broadcast in HD it would still probably be a heavily compressed transmission, so it would still look you've smeared Vaseline over the telly, only not as much as SD.
it's not just Crimetime that do it too, the Boxnation stream is shit as well. Foreign broadcasts aren't as bad as UK ones, though.
Shut up about HD.
There's non difference, and if there is a difference..? Nobody cares.
