Splashing the cash, nice premium service
I am on SKY Q with an OLED (LG) TV, so an option maybe for myself also, thanks for letting us know about this new offer from SKY

Hell yeah. The colours are awesome
The software version needed is – Q112.000.21.00L (53wk8j8), I just manually updated it via settings.
Content is limited at the moment and only via on demand, quote from sky website –
“As part of the new Sky Nature channel launch we are excited to reveal the new on demand HDR shows, Gangs of Lemur Island, Pridelands: Wilderness Reborn and Malawi Wildlife Rescue.
You will be able to search for these shows or find them in the Ultra HD rails and sections within Sky Q Home and On Demand.
Over 2020 we will look to increase the HDR on demand range, with the following coming before the end of the year:
More Nature shows
A selection of Sky Originals
A selection of blockbuster movies in time for Sky Cinema Christmas.”June 10, 2020 at 8:50 pm #7945
Perfect, my job for tomorrow ;-)

@Bully, I just checked my SKy Q box this morning and alas it is hardware version 32C00A which unfortunately for myself means I cannot get Sky HDR service with my current box (High Dynamic Range) content.
I did read somewhere for £50 I can opt for a Sky Q box upgrade via self install, alas I have a lot of Babylon 5 series recorded which I do not want to loose if I upgrade
Also seems non of the current SKY Q boxes use SSD hard drives as yet, so some fun to be had upgrading the hard disk if I do purchase a new SKY Q box, but do have to be mindful of cost and SSD do have a limited “write cycle” lifespan

My TV is LG OLED55C7V and seems to support 4K Ultra HD HDR so looking good for upgrade
What TV is yours ?

Oh that’s a shame
my tv is a Panasonic OLED TX-55GZ1000B.June 11, 2020 at 6:23 pm #7967
A Sony and Panasonic shared manufactured screen/Panel, nice
I ordered my SKY Q box upgrade today and £50 well spent
Thanks for letting us all know about SKY Q HDR

I think it is actually an LG panel with Panasonic hardware/processors etc.June 11, 2020 at 7:02 pm #7969
I read this – but either way, OLED’s are a nice screen technology
