Agree. Sa news at sports channels pansin na pansin since kapag asa newsroom/commentator ang shot okay dahil wala masyado motion pero pag sa field na nagpapan ang pangit na nung quality.
In all fairness, CIGNAL has its own level of deterioration of HD video quality but SkyCable HD has made video compression so freaking bad that even my top-of-the-line 4k TV panel cannot improve the sh_tty video no matter how much adjustment I do with the MPEG NOISE CONTROL from TV settings. SKyCable HD video quality is so bad these days that it is now infuriating to watch something on a 65" screen, specially when there is MOTION and PANNING!
And here's the freakin' kicker: if you notice the deteriorated video quality of SkyCable HD channels, you would swear to God how bad SD (STANDARD DEFINITION) channels have become. In fact, as I tested, the video quality of some local digital TV broadcasts via ISDB-T receiver (like GMA7 and GNTV) significantly looks better (less artifacts) compared to the same local channels when viewed via SkyCable. Ganun kapangit!
I was hoping the SkyCable HD video deterioration was only temporary, which I started noticing towards the middle of December 2016. And now we welcome 2017, this thing persists.
