The disclaimer states
"Our Ultra HD service requires the TV to support HDCP2.2 content protection and a picture resolution of 2160p50 (sometimes known as 50Hz) over the same HDMI port. "
So does that mean that any TV that meets the specification should work?
Im currently looking at a 55" Hisense TV (not a well know brand in the UK at the moment, but getting lots of good reviews and the TV's are a good price!).
Are BT looking at updating the list with other manufacturers etc?
Yes any tv that meets the specs should work but BT will only confirm if it has been tested (sometimes firmwares can cause issues even if the specs are ok).
Rob - Before you buy the TV ask the shop or Hisense if they support HDCP2.2 & 2160p50 on the same HDMI port.
I have seen TVs that support both,but on different HDMI ports,which is not very useful
Although hisense lists 2160p50 and HDCP2.2 as supported, it will not work with a BT Udh box.
My set failed to handshake correctly with HDCP.
I have received a firmware update from Hisense (which is currently being rolled out over thier range) and this has corrected the handshake issue.
The hisense TV range supports 2160p50 on two of the hdmi sockets (3/4) whiile 1/2 only support upto 30hz.
Yes, my set now works after the firmware update.
However I had to contact Hisense support who posted the update to me, as it was not available over the air at the time.
BT UHD is not 50/60p and the supported 4K TV including my Sony only do 2160 at 24/25/30p
Even if the signal is interlaced at 50 Hz once deinterlaced by the decoder in the box it becomes 25p
The bandwidth to transmit 50p is too high for the current requirement and besides the box is not able to decode it
The TV only needs to have an HDMI 2.0 as 1.4 was supporting only 24p but that does not mean at all that the stream are 50p only that the display may support it
