BBC 4k UHD trial

Go to solution
Noticed by recently whilst watching BBC iPlayer through TV wi-fi a short 7 minute UHD stream of Blue Planet 2, but this is not available on iPlayer through my bt UHD box
Does that mean we might miss out on BBC uhd broadcasts when(?) they start

I think the point Zulu was trying to make was that it is only certain devices that are available on the trial at the minute. YouView boxes are not one of the devices. That is why you can access it direct through the APP on your smart TV (if it is on the list) but not through the APP on the YouView box. As the trial widens hopefully the YouView app will be incorporated. As you can see on that list at the minute two of the biggest TV suppliers it is not available for (Sony and Samsung) so it is still very early days....

Thanks Scointer for the information. All clear now glad I opted for LG not the Samsung I was thinking about.

Are their any plans by BT to upgrade the Iplayer on the UHD box so it can play the 4k content?

That would be a decision for the BBC to make, not BT. The iplayer is supplied to BT/Youview by the Beeb.

I know this is an old thread but did not want to start yet another one.

 

Is anyone having problems watching Wimbledon on BBC iPlayer please ?
