In reply to both of previous post, I agree with both of you, I'm not bashing BT I'm first in the queue with everything and sure I want HDR.
However I want HDR, and I'm fully prepared to help and provide techincal feedback, what I'm not prepared to tollerate is being charged for something having to be a beta tester and getting something that quite simply is unwatchable.
While BT may well have serveyed people (76% of 10 people is different to 76% of 10,000 people) and everone I spoke to during champions league final found it as I did. Awefull and on properly set up Tv's.
I know only to well that around 95% of people have their TV's set as they come out of the box and most of the time that looks awefull as well.
SDR is basically 1929 technology and it took years to get HD right and 709 colour space. That started early 90's and tvs finaly hit 709 by 2014.
Its going to take years to get HDR right, as of now most HDR Tvs hit between 3-500 nits, the best newer ones around 7-800 nits, a couple of LCD sets can get to 1000-1500 the odd one or two 2000 and one 85" 8k samsung 3500nits.
We're going to 10,000 nits and were years away from that
All I'm after is when I call someone from BT I expect them to give me proper correct information so I can make an informed decision. The chap I spoke to yesterday first said the game is not broadcast in HDR and by the end of the convo passed me on to line faults
HDR done well looks great BBC, from what I can see BT currently are no where near this level and they are selling a full service. Lets see what happens next weekend and in time I'm sure they will get it right but for now based on the reply in the other thread its clear they are not really ready and should not really be charging for it.
