Keep your eyes peeled folks, looks like tonight's England - Nigeria game is being shot with UHD-HDR cameras.


I think ITV have the rights for home internationals 

 

cheers


UHD feed is coming from a different production truck.


Sorry bud

 

i meant its  unlikely to be viewable in this country as ITV hold the rights

 

cheers


Ah, gotya.

 

Anyone able to confirm whether the Roku supports HLG - some twitter chatter suggests it might not be HLG compatible and is getting a different UHD trial loop on iPlayer to some other TV's.

Unless the BBC are broadcasting a non-HLG version of the HDR test loop (almost completely certain they’re not) then the Roku *must* be HLG compatible.

I have the Roku and it definitely plays the current UHD FA cup match highlight loop in HLG.

roku still not on the list of supported devices for live HLG World cup trial broadcast. Just makes me so angry seeing loads of non- Samssung 2016 models of TV on the list.. Samsung could have sorted KS models if they wanted to. 

@AntS   i know you are only the messanger but you are the only one who can get the information we all been waiting for.

It's probably futile but I think I will write formally (i.e. by good old Royal Mail!) to Samsung UK CEO. Quite tempted to print all 300 pages of this thread and include as a bound addendum to the letter; should draw some attention to the strength of feeling at least.

Yes , I agree with you.

That's what I thought, but the Forbes chap has tried his LG C8 and the Roku, and the LG is seeing the Blue Planet demo and the Roku is seeing the FA Cup demo. 

 

More murky soup for the bowl.

on the 2017 samsungs both demos are available, if in the normal iplayer app you select the uhd trial and get planet earth 2 if you tick the beta iplayer and restart the app and then select the UHD trial the footy is shown, do you think he has not bothered toggling the beta player on with his lg?

 

cheers

Hi I just asked my friend to try that on his Hisense 6800 and he confirms that following the above he can get both football and planet earth 2 in HLG. The Hisense is not on the list so seems odd.

The current list on bbc web site is for devices that will support Live broadcast hlg trial. Hisense was probably on the old list that support the demo loop.
