    does directv use mpeg-4 .246 or .h265 for encoding.

    dish quality is smore smooth and free flowing
    directv quality is blurry and pixelated
    it appears directv quality is too compressed

    Try adjusting the contrast and sharpness by turning each of them down.
    Take a pic of your screen before you change the settings so that you can put them back to where they were before you mess with it.
    Might even have to turn the color saturation / density down some also.

    HD is compressed by H.264; UHD [4K] - H.265

    your artifacts does not directly influenced by compression algo, but many factors include profiles of stat muxes

    HD is h.264 for Dish and directv, is that right
    4k is H.265

    Directv Now is H.265 from what it says online, is that right

    I thought DISH is actually all MPEG-4 on the EA, but still a mixture of MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 program feeds on the WA?

    With DirecTV Now, I *think* they encode their content in both H.264 and H.265. If the device you're using can decode H.265, then that's what you get since the H.265 stream requires less bandwidth. But if you're using a device that can't decode H.265 (such as many older and less expensive Roku models), you'll get the H.264 stream.
