Its not even the whole channel that's messed it is just the Jackets broacasts. So yeah if I am complaining about everything plus the 6 o'clock news then shame on me. Could still be something at my cable provider though. It just sux cause I want to see the game without it looking like watching through a shower curtain man! I'll have to ask my coworkers if they've noticed anything.

We are saving up for an HD TV but in truth I think SD is still dying and not dead for those that don't want to shell out a couple hundred on a new screen.
The reason it looks so bad for just the Jackets games is because of lake of bandwidth and they are compressing the SD feed to make room for the HD feed and like Moo has pointed out it is only going to get worse as providers drop their SD feed and just put a HD filmed program on SD channels.
