Watching Aerial American Utah on Dish Network the PQ is really bad compared to Directv. This was one of my favorite shows so really disappointed the quality could be this different.
Not something I would even waste my time watching now, you need crisp clear stunning visuals for this type of programming. Even the Smithsonian logo looks bad.

Now second guessing this move to Dish. If only I had locals with Directv I would of never moved.

That's either a gross exaggeration or you have something set wrong.

It was in HD, Aerial American Utah. I've checked the programming this afternoon and looks much better. Even the Smithsonian logo was pixelating and not doing it now. I recorded part of the show for reference when I contact Dish.

It almost looked out of focus at times.

we do ?? on the h3 or like roku ?? i knew they had a subscription channel that looked nice on the roku, but not sure about anything else.
thanks for any information!!
You are correct, Dish itself doesn't have an On Demand for Smithsonian, at least that I can find. You can get the Smithsonian on a Roku but you will need to have a Dish sub that includes Smithsonian to get it. We will have to wait until April to see where and how we will be able to watch the 10 hours worth of programming in 4K.
