It appears to me that DirecTV's picture quality has degraded significantly over the last couple of years. It used to be so sharp I could see individual gray hairs on Rachael Maddow's head, not any more. Everything looks like it's been upscaled from SD to 720p to me and that's being optimistic. I don't watch sports so I don't know what their 4k looks like. I can switch to Amazon Prime and the difference between their's and DirecTV's PQ is stunning. Amazon Prime is tack sharp with rich color and deep blacks while DirecTV's is a washed out blurry mess. What is going on with this bunch these days?
