Something I've noticed watching the Center Ice package on my new TV. There is a marked difference in quality between games on the Fox RSNs and ATT Sports Network. Is this because it's ran by Directv already and they're capable of cheaper compression in-network? It's glaringly obvious when watching on a 65" 4K tv. The Fox RSNs look terrible in comparison when stretched.

I sub to NBA LP and it varies from market to market, sometimes Fox Sports look better than the alternatives, and sometimes the other way around.

Not officially, they just use the branding. I still see Root Sports in their ads and, well, the channel name/logo on the guide/info banner...

Still curious about this and how we can check compression and other statistics per network. I guess we really can't can we? But I can definitely tell with the naked eye the Root/ATT Sports Network are far better.

I watched a Pirates game the other day and it clearly had the AT&T logo in the upper right hand corner.
