what do you meann by colour banding?

Colour banding which is banding within colours relavant to bitrate etc. is normally in the content, and TVs have great ways of smoothing that out. Normally if its after a firmware update, some setting or feature has been disabled which is why its becoming more obvious.

It's not the TV, it's the content and compression. Youtube is terrible with compression and color banding will be seen and bigger displays also makes it more noticeable. I took this screenshot from my phone on the Spiderman trailer from Youtube and as you can see it looks the same.
