The installer that did mine just drilled a hole, fed through the cables, then fit some circular rubbery things to "seal" the holes. No wall-mounted boxes.

I'm not sure of the exact resolution but it clearly isn't HD. SD streams on iPlayer use a really weird resolution so maybe Sky do as well. I think the bit rate when at maximum quality is ~3 Mbps,...

It just gets worse and worse. Why anyone would buy into DVB-T or DAB is beyond me. All the "going digital" adverts for DAB annoy me because they brazenly lie.

Is there any excuse for Sky Go being inferior to illegal streams?

I mean seriously, why would even legitimate Sky customers use Sky Go when they can get better quality streams elsewhere? Why can't Sky provide a legitimate way to watch at least a 720p/25 stream of...
