    Default Sound quality on catch up tv

    I watched Black Earth Rising a few nights ago on catch up and was struck by how much better the sound quality was compared to the previous week watched 'live'.
    It was a more immersive experience with the surround and atmos speakers contributing a great deal to the presentation. I have noticed the same on Netflix but put it down to the processing method.
    Is there any reason why ordinary tv should be different?

    The BBC use a lot of bandwidth for all their other broadcast data on their multiplex on Freeview.

    Ah so it wasn't my imagination - I have occasionally noticed SQ to be better on catch up than live broadcast.

    It was not your imagination.
    Sound quality on both Virgin and Sky is far better than on Freeview. IIRC Freesat is too.
