I would guess not as this is caused by the signal to freeview,
The TV wont correct this it will only display only what it is fed.
I have Sky+ and some channels can look bad, others look like they are DVDs.

It might actually be worse as the better quality will give a better PQ on a good feed but sometimes they can amplify imperfections.
