      New higher pic quality my butt

      I was eager to have a look at this new sky pic quality and the compression is even worse, I have a recorded copy of American ultra from movies premier and it takes up 6gb of disk space I have just downloaded the same thing this morning and the disk space taken up is less than half at 2.9gb, more smoke and mirrors from sky again I see.

      More efficient compression doesn't usually mean a bigger file size. If they do multi-pass encoding where they were doing single-pass previously then this can give a better picture and potentially a lower file size.
