      5OD quality

      I think i've just seen the worst example of a hd picture, ever.

      Mondays 'the gadget show' from 5OD catch-up makes vhs seem like blu-ray in comparison.

      It was so bad, i deleted it & tried another download but it's just as bad.
      It comes across like a bandwidth issue, with colour smearing & digital blocking all over the place.
      The sd version is far, far better though?

      Has anyone else noticed this?
      Honestly, it's that bad it's funny.

      This has been raised with Sky and the information has been fed back to Channel 5 who are responsible for the content.

      It isn't just The Gadget Show, but much of the HD content at the moment.

      Patiently waiting for deadman to ask....... Surely you mean 5D? and I didn't even know 5D existed?

      I've also noticed this HD problem.
      Noticed it more recent since I bought a bigger tv.
      Hope it's something easily remedied.

      In terms of a remedy, someone within the Channel 5 organisation needs to correctly create the Demand five content to a suitable High Definition quality.

      Part of the Catch Up TV agreement means that the content provided by each company is their responsibility, not Sky's. So in this instance the source of the issue is with Channel 5, not Sky.
