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

...

Moderator edit: Original thread title was "Blue Planet 2 HLG - No Samsung". With the OP's permission, the title was changed on 12/03/2018 to accurately reflect the dominant theme of the thread as it has progressed. If the reader would like to know more about the HLG format, please check out the BBC's page and FAQ's on it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/projects/high-dynamic-range Thank you, AntS.

Got the usb update, I can confirm HDR/HLG working with the Amazon firestick, Dynasties looks great!

Firestick is not listed as a supported device on iPlayer site. Are you sure it’s using HLG?

Fire stick isn’t listed, but I don’t think Roku is listed either. Think it’s only a list of TV’s not STB’s

Firestick 4k is working correctly. Delivers the same quality of picture I saw on an LG back in the summer.

 

Colours no longer look washed out. Also confirm Dynasties looks great.

Roku+ is listed.  The Firestick isn't but I've read a number of posts where owners are now getting HDR since installing the new firmware.

The Firestick has been out all of what, a few weeks? The Roku+ at this point is the next to drop off the range on the next refresh.

 

I didn't need to update my Firestick to get HDR, worked out the box. Got it yesterday.

 

Also the HDR10+ talk should stop, the set is incapable of supporting the Wildvine API's HDR10+ needs. We all know this, it's not a new discussion.

What do you mean by that?  The Roku+ has been part of all the BBC trials from the start and I don't see that changing.  Good to see with the Firestick there is an other alternative.

The Roku product line-up was refeshed in September with updated hardware for 2019, including updated remotes to be more like the new Alexa remote.

True but I still don't see the Roku+ stopping support for HLG in iPlayer.  Just got the v9 update and its still there.
