In my experience yes....I think it depends on the tv really. Some people notice a drop in quality and some an increase. My Sony Bravia 3 certainly does a good job of Freeview channels

It depends. TV's have a "native resolution" and if your source is a different resolution it has to use an internal "upscaler" to convert the resolution.

On cheap TV's the display is often good but the upscaler is crap. Shops can make the TV look good by using a DVD or BluRay player which is set to be the same resolution that the TV looks good in thereby bypassing the upscaler. In otherwords beware shop displays that are not showing live tv.

I would try to read as many online reviews as you can of any prospective purchase. If some reviews say excellent picture quality and some reviews say crap picture quality that should tip you off that the upscaler is probably crap and you should avoid.

What size are you looking at? Anything under 32" you don't really need a resolution of 1080p. 720 would do just fine. Because the screen is smaller, your eyes wouldn't see any difference
