On a related note, I was spent the holidays with family and they were watching TNG on BBC-A and I could hardly stand watching it like that.
I saw Brothers on BBC-A and it was obviously the new HD version, but due to heavy compression, it had much less detail than watching it via blu-ray.
are you sure about that? BBC-A is still airing them SD but top and bottom crop filled (small black bars on sides) last I saw this week. You would be seeing more detail if they were HD, even with cable compression levels.
Amazon Prime has all but Season 5 in HD and they look just a little worse than the blu-rays.
