Re: UHD on Virgin Media

I don't think they have ever had live HDR - not even on the iPlayer app.

No but Sky Q is now capable of HLG so surely its possible to display live content in HDR.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

When Sky first announced the availability of HDR on their platform, they said that the first live sport using it was likely to be the Tokyo Olympics next summer.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

I see for example, Cobra is showing twice when searched, one is UHD.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

So no Christmas morning surprise occurred today then. lol

Surely it must be very soon. Loads of dramas and some movies are showing as UHD in the search areas. Lots of well-known SKY ONE dramas for starters.

VM are the biggest teasers around. The Company is definitely of the female persuasion. Lol

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

Something similar occurs on SkyQ boxes. You get a show promoted with a "even better in Ultra HD" banner splashed on it - only to find that the programme is not available in UHD.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

I expect they will blame the delay on the pandemic. Seems to be a good excuse for everything at the moment. I thought they were working from home!

Hoping it does too sooner than later, if they had delays due to Covid19 you thought they issue a statement about the delay

I think, if you stand back from all this, it is clear that Sky UHD is coming. Frustrating as it is, we will just have to be patient!

So is the end of linear television but it’s hard to not be frustrated at the perpetual delay.
