BBC One SD always has worse picture quality compared to every other SD channel with black bars on the side. This isn’t a new thing and it’s the only channel which is like this, every other SD channel looks much better than BBC One SD.
The black bars down the side are probably your aspect ratio or another display setting.

it’s 1080p, which is the same as my tv
And the aspect correction mode? That's what can cause black bars down the side or along the top.
BBC One SD is the only issue, the aspect ratio of every other channel, no matter what resolution is 16:9 with zero black bars.
