NFL: Tampa vs. Green Bay - Horrible Picture Quality: Fox, CTV or BellTV?

Yesterday I was watching the TB vs. GB game and the picture was terrible!

I was watching it on ExpressVu which was carrying the CTV simsub.

So does anyone know, was this a bad FOX broadcast, a bad CTV simulcast or a BellTV problem?

Thanks in advance (and please can we stick to a discussion of THIS game only)

I can say I watched the first 30-45 minutes on FOXW-HD non simsubbed on Rogers, and it looked fine.

Interesting Bell simsubbed CTV over it for your area? CTV Toronto was doing the NYJ-Ari game. (edit, if you want to erase this line and just stick to the Bays game, go ahead Hugh)

I can't comment on the HD feed but the SD that i saw on BellTV ch455 (I think, one of the NFLST channels anyway) looked fine to me. The feed I was getting was from FOX.

I know Fox's quality has always been a bit washed out for some reason, I find CBS to have the best feed quality, so I would blame it on FOX.

Fox looks bad for me too/NFL and MLB...CBS is better, NBC best
