Re: Quality issues on Sky Sports - some kind of patterned overlay?

@branflakes 


Not an a issue on playback for me with now stick & Panasonic tv.  Here are my images.

 

normal playback - perfect.  Used constant colour to make sure.

Re: Quality issues on Sky Sports - some kind of patterned overlay?

Hi all,


Just been reading the thread and have exactly the same issue. It seems to be prevalent on Sky One for me.

 

I’m using Now TV through a Samsung OLED TV

Re: Quality issues on Sky Sports - some kind of patterned overlay?

Folks I've got this exact issue and I am using an Amazon 4k Firestick. My bandwidth is always good and I have no issues with other football apps like BT or Premier. Has anyone ever found a resolution for this issue? It's driving me wild. I pay a lot of money for this privelidge and it's absolutely terrible quality because of this camouflage overlay.

Re: Quality issues on Sky Sports - some kind of patterned overlay?

Hi @JonnyMDS 

 

There are a few threads on the Community about picture noise artefacts when watching Sky Sports over the last 24 months such has the camouflage effect, fog or mist or  marco blocking noise on the background where i have inputted on a few of them myself.

 

I believe they are all related and just a different description on what the customer sees when watching Sky Sports with NOW.

 

Unfortunately i don't know the answer, where NOW will blame your internet connection which is not the case.

Re: Quality issues on Sky Sports - some kind of patterned overlay?

Thanks for the reply. I figured as much. Looks like it's been an issue for
years. Found lots of threads about it but no answer and sounds like NowTV
have their head in the sand about it. I'm not even gonna report it because
it's so obviously a problem at their end and they'll make me jump through
the troubleshooting nonsense which will just drive me up the wall. Their
app is trash. There's literally no settings that you can play with to try
and rectify the issue. I'll probably just cancel my subscription and find
an alternative.
