When did they drop the HD from the ITV2/3/4 DOG? And there is quite a noticeable difference between the SD and HD versions.

Couple of years ago the HD dog was dropped. The SD feed is downsampled from HD.

Does that mean watching SD content on the SD channels has been upscaled to HD then downscaled again?

Are Now TV still downscaling from HD? It used to be a marked improvement in quality compared to Freeview SD.

By the sound of it, yes. Just as has been the case for BBC channels for many years. (BBC One HD was - for a short period - and HD opt-out of BBC One SD, but that stopped a long time a go)

That's got to hurt the quality. Especially if you're watching on an LCD TV that's upscaling it again.
