So, of the nigh on 400 TVs supported in BBC iplayer for the Blue Planet II  HLG episodes none are from Samsung. Oh joy.

Just a reminder that the FA cup final will be the latest UHD trial on the BBC iPlayer today. https://www.svgeurope.org/blog/headlines/fa-cup-final-2019-bbc-sport-to-use-single-production-workfl...

Good article, thanks for sharing

It'll be interesting to see if there'll be any delay between the various broadcast qualities, something people have complained about previously.

Looks fantastic on a LG C8  65.

Anybody watch this on a KS set from a Virgin Media V6?  If so was the picture OK?  Didn't see today's final but someone on another forum with the 1239 firmware complained the colours were really over saturated.

Watched on a KS via a Roku - using firmware 1239.1 - superb!

My KS7000 updated to 1233 recently.. I ran the websocket query on my sky q box and it now says HLG sink enabled. Does this mean the 1239 fix was rolled out under 1233? I don't have a Roku or anything to test (still waiting for sky q to enable hdr

The champions league final was broadcast live in HDR from the BT app. I watched it on my Xbox One X and it said it was HDR and looked like it. Wondering what type HDR BT are using, as I don't believe it was HLG.

 

Anyone know any details or manage to watch it?
