Basically in my short film, part of the story is told through the news, and I want to make the news footage look different compared to the rest of the POV narrative.

But HDTVs look so good nowadays, that how do I make the news quality look different in comparison?

Here is an example of news from the Robocop remake:


Is there anything I can do to make it look like it's been seen through a lower grade footage or anything?

green screen, tracking 2D, compositing of the footage tv+effects and rendering

Should be able to just throw it into Aftereffects or Premiere and add a LUT or filter to create the effect. I've done it before, pretty easy. If you want to share the footage happy to do it.
