I've watched the NHL Network's CBC HNIC broadcasts the past few weeks and noticed that it appears this channel is being over-compressed. If you look at the faces of the people, you see it blurry around their edges, etc. Never saw it look so bad before. Has D* changed something in the past few weeks or so, such as over-compressing?
It also appears that some of CBC's broadcasts are SD upconverted to 16:9 as it's strech-o-vision (even the CBC circle logo is stretched out sideways). I thought CBC was finally doing true HD for all of their NHL games.
