Well, @finalthrd continues by claiming:

"to those asking why, the PL probably does some combination of the following things - modifies the source feed color - has higher quality stadium cameras - has more visually pleasing grass no matter what it is, other leagues need to take note."

The thread sent social media into overdrive. Here's some reaction:

La Liga even wanted greener grass for more appealing television broadcast.

Borja Gonzalez, stadium business manager at Athletic Bilbao, said the following in 2016 about Spain's broadcast.

"You see La Liga and sometimes the light is good, sometimes not; some grass is green, some grass is yellow. The problem is, it's not consistent," he said.

"For us, it's very important that when someone watches a football game, they know it's La Liga no matter which team is playing.

"It's going to take another year, but we will get there."

This is one of the many reasons why England's top flight is so popular.
