Well, maybe I'm less discerning but I find the Setanta picture fine, and I have HDTV. I have always held the view that Setanta's PQ transmissions of Sky games is a little bit poorer than their own direct coverage - for example, the late Saturday and early Sunday EPL games have as good a PQ as any. Also, I'm pretty sure today's Setanta matches were actually from Sky who cover all games and this was certainly the case 2-3 weeks ago, the night when Liverpool played Porto. Watched only the Liverpool game today(and on my SDTV!) so can't comment but 2 weeks ago I found Setanta Champions League to be better than TSN - Champions League PQ from within Europe I often find to be poorer than from UK itself so that may also contribute to today's comment and my view a few weeks ago.
I do agree that Sky sets the standard for the others and is No.1 in UK. but our comparisons have to be Setanta v Canadian coverage and not v Sky as Sky is simply not an option. For the range of what we get I still believe $4 a week represents good value - apart from other impending offerings we have Liverpool v Man Utd Sunday, Carling Cup Blackburn v Arsenal and Chelsea v Liverpool next week and Arsenal v Spurs the first Sat game after that.
Just enjoying what I am getting.
