I find the Direct TV service to be virtually unwatchable. The quantizing
and other compression artifacts make a simple fade to black a study in
cubism, much less something as busy as a football game. Simply switching
between the Direct Tv feed and an analog cable broadcast reveals analog to
be a much more pleasing picture.
