Sky's picture is certainly not DVD quality or close to what you see on Freeview|HD.

A monster cable won't necessarily make any difference in picture quality - it certainly won't make the picture quality of Sky any better than a cheaper cable if you were expecting that.

MySky HD will improve the quality, without HD will be the same no matter what sky box you use.

Feed the TV what it was built for - HD. Get MySky HDi if your into Sky Sports and also get a PS3/Blu-ray player if funds allow.

Yeah the fuzzy/crap around the players etc is due to the heavy compression used by SKY to transmit the signal. The freeview DVB-T / landbased transmissions have a bit more space available and use a newer compression technique, so they don't have to cram it in quite as much. Freeview doesn't carry any SKY sports content though. SKY uses satellites to beam the info to your box/tv, and there is limited bandwidth/signal space available on the satellite.

I won't go into the fact that the other 50 channels of crap all take up space for your sports broadcast, but you get the idea. As has been mentioned above, if this annoys you enough, you'll need to spend the extra $10 per month to get the same shows with enough bandwidth allocated to show the sports properly and in a higher resolution.

This is a source signal problem, nothing to do with cables sorry.
