Prime on freeview looks worse than anything else SD on there with the exception of the junk channels. No change today when I had a quick look earlier other than a new logo.

lchiu7: I thought OTA Freeview on UHF used H.264.

It appears to be HD on Vodafone cable which I guess is to be expected. A/B comparisons with Freeview are quite revealng.
