It doesn’t very good on any service, streaming, cable, or satellite.I'm watching the Ohio State-Oregon game and the picture looks absolutely horrendous on my Hopper 3. It's very blurry and pixelated. Anything I can do about this or is just due to Dish's crappy compression technology?
For big games, the cameras will all feed to the production truck, and a single feed (with a backup) will go from the production truck via fiber or satellite to the originating network. In that situation, the odds of a single camera being out of adjustment are extremely slim.I have also noticed a lot of variability over the years in the HD quality amongst many of the networks when watching football games. Often it’s grainy. It seems to be most common with the main camera angles that show the live play action. Other close up angles from different cameras often look fine. It’ll be fine on one channel and grainy on another channel both showing live games at the same time. It’s not consistently grainy for all games on the same network and it occurs on local channels been piped in via satellite (e.g. Fox) as well as non-local channels (e.g. ESPN). I used to think it was cameras out of adjustment but I believe they typically use more than 1 camera for live play shots switching between them as play moves up and down the field. I’ve always put it down to an issue at the stadium with how the broadcast feed back to the network has been setup or the equipment they are using but that’s just a guess.
