That, my friends, is marketing.
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

"... later this year, DIRECTV will begin offering movies in 1080p, the highest resolution format available for HD video enthusiasts and the same format used by Blu-Ray HD DVDs."
Blu-Ray uses the term "equal" and DIRECTV uses the term "same format." .. In any event, DIRECTV does not claim to have the same PQ as Blu-Ray.

"Underlining the conclusion that all high-definition television formats are not created equal, the Blu-ray Disc Association is insisting that the Dish and DirecTV home-satellite services are misleading customers when they claim that they deliver HD-quality pictures and sound equal to Blu-ray's."
i don't think either company has said a word about the sound. at least, nothing i've read has.

Not all Blu rays are the same quality encode, nor do they all include the best audio, nor are they all encoded at the highest possible bitrate.
So neither side here can claim innocence when it comes to marketing spin.
