HD Sports quality or lack of

Hi all,

I have a more than capable TV and watch sports through all channels, Sky Sports HD seems to have horrendous picture quality compared to others such as BT and Prime, even BBC/ITV, I can also use BT Ultimate and it looks fantastic, I have tried changing all of the relevant output setting from the V6 box, am I possibly missing something as to why Sky Sports HD is so poor?

 

Thanks in advance

Sky sports HD poor image compared to BT

Apologies for a repost as I stupidly put this in TiVo recently, I have a V6 box and a Samsung QE65Q67RA TV and seem to have a great picture on all BT sport channels, however Sky Sports in comparison is awful, I do have the HD package and those channels are arguably no different to SD

 

I have tried toying with the output settings and so far had no luck, any recommendations?

Thanks in advance
