Don't know if this has been mentioned before but I couldn't find any topics on it.

Why are there lines through 720p versions of some Anime shows like bleach? It appears that you're just upscaling the feed.

It's more noticeable on white scenes. I can't really see any difference between 480p and 720p at full screen on a 24" LCD apart from the lines on the 720p version and slightly more blur.

Our video quality will vary depending on the quality of the source video. Bleach is produced in 540P but the production company upscales that to 720P in order to distribute to broadcasters like us since 540P isn't a commercial standard. So the 720P version of Bleach should be better quality than the 480P version but the differences aren't as noticeable as you would see between true 480P and 720P videos.
