Poor reception on cable tv for any channel showing live sports

I am getting a pixelated, distorted signal on channels showing live sports--ESPN, Comcast Chicago, Big Ten Network, Fox Sports as well as ABC, NBC, CBS. Other stations such as CNN, AMC, BBC, CNBC, etc are clear and not distorted. What's the problem?

Channels come in on different frequencies. Something is impeding the signal of those channels frequencies. Make sure everything is tight, remove any unnecessary splitters and possibly have a tech out to troubleshoot further
