I never tried to watch this or other shows off the websites, but i suspect they are using a highly compressed feed to send it since it is likely free and bandwidth costs money.

Have you tried playing a SD DVD in the DVD drive to see how that looks? If it looks good then it is just a poor feed from over compressing the material, like i suspect.
