1080p, 1080i, 720p or 4K are all pointless with the amount of compression they're all putting onto the signals. All of them look like garbage on good TV or projector when it comes to fast-moving sports.
I totally agree, but the reality is that they won't fix that, just like they didn't for standard definition.
Standard def could have been DVD quality, yet it was garbage. The only way we got higher bitrates was to move up to HD. And now, once again, we could have bluray quality HD, but we won't.
That said, I don't think DirecTV should be worrying about this when they can't even get lots of basic HD channels to their subscribers.--
