Is viewing quality worse on a Television compared to a DVD?

Question by smoothiemaker: Is viewing quality worse on a Television compared to a DVD?
Is the viewing quality better on the live television showing of a show or program than of watching it on a DVD? I prefer watching tv shows on DVD because it’s clearer and not so grainy, what do you think?

It’s possible. If you’re watching TV at 480i, and you’re watching a DVD on a progressive DVD player, then obvious, the DVD will be better than the TV show (480p vs. 480i).

    Normally it depends on the T.V you have but the DVD could be really high quality and the T.V show low quality and vice versa.

    really there’s no definite answer.

    Have you tried watching a true HD program on TV? I think you will find it to be much better quality than a DVD.
