Comcast / XfinityUnethical behavior with hbo broadcast quality

S May 28, 2019

Comcast never provides Dolby Digital sound on any of its HD channels, Dolby is only offered with On Demand programing!

Comcast is also reducing frame rate to reduce required bandwidth on HBO to allow more bandwidth for their other services such as home alarm systems. This reduction in frame rate is obvious by the jerky motion of moving objects.

I'm running a 2018 Sony XBR-65X900F 4K set that upscales beautifully unless fed a signal of less than standard definition frame rate.

When subscribing to HBO shouldn't I receive the quality you intended?

Can you hold Comcast over a barrel to broadcast the signal you provide, not a watered down version?
