We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
Not sure what you mean.
The only UHD content is BT's Sport channel and the catch-up of that sports channel in the BT player (organised under a 4K heading).
The Netflix app will list and play 4k content (in surround sound via HDMI on a UHD box) if you go via the box and have a 4K subscription but just looks the same and is in the same place as the app on any YouView box.
There is only one other app that does 4k at the minute and that is the amazon prime service, unfortunately that is not available on BT's TV service at this time.
There are a few film services (apple/google) that do 4K film purchases but they have always been fairly low availability and of course Youtube isnt available as an app on the BT box.
your best bet for 4K content is a BluRay player I would have thought, there is only one UHD channel on BT and that is just the occaisional sports thing. Most UHD TV's have youtube etc built in I think.
Netflix app on the UHD box is 4k capable. ie you can watch Iron Fist, Daredevil, Travellers, movies etc etc in UHD.
There are some big changes to the BT TV box coming this year so be interesting to see what develops.
Unless your existing box can magically grow a HDCP2.2 copy protection chip. This I would like to see...
Well exactly, if it was that simple why hasn't my PS4 been enabled for 4k and i have to buy a PS4 Pro?
I am not saying boxes can't upgrade online but as far as i know you need specific hardware (HDCP2.2 chip) to allow 4K to be viewed.
My TV only has 1 port out of 4 enabled for HDCP2.2 and it is annoying, wouldn't it be lovely if they could update the other 3 ports for HDCP with just a firmware update...
The other box has more than just a bigger hard drive. It has a faster chipset to decode the HEVC that 4K is coded in....
