Sky F1 channel has exaggerated colour?

Just noticed this today the colour is far too high on the F1 channel but when I was watching F1 practise this morning on sky sports mix the colour was normal what's going on?

I meant sky sports main event, premier League channel is effected as well it's almost as if the colour had been turned up to max but it hasn't because other channels are normal.

Same today between sky sports main event and sky cricket, the grass is so much brighter on the cricket channel.

Same for me on F1 and Cricket today. Reds are massively overblown. It's not pretty to watch.

Looks like crappy downsampling of UHD to me. Well, that’s what it looks like when it’s not balanced correctly. Thin horizontal lines when there is high movement on the edge of a solid colour is also a sign of downsampling errors.

Super contrasty and over the top colours on Sky F1 HD on my V6 boxes as well. Reds are so over saturated they appear to shimmer.

Good to know I'm not the only one, one day Virgin might sort out a deal for sky sports uhd unlike the low grade heavily compressed picture they supply currently...

Hopefully without an extra cost if you are on ultimate oomph.

Re: Sky F1 channel has exaggerated colour?

Hey all,

 

Apologies for the image issues you've experienced on Sky Sports over the weekend.

 

Glad things have improved for you today @Tonybied, is the issue still occurring for anyone else?

 

Kind regards,
