Comcast compression
High Definition television might be over 10 years old, but it is hardly perfect. Which makes us wonder on this Sunday afternoon, has broadcast HD picture quality gotten worse or better over the years? Sure, we've seen some especially heinous acts by DirecTV with its HD Lite, and then there was Comcast's shameful compression, and more recently there have been plenty of complaints about AT&T's U-Verse. But overall we wonder, has it gotten better or worse?
