I'm still waiting for an update to Netflix and Youtube to make it HDR. When I joined this forum a few weeks ago someone said we would get an update but does anyone have any more information. Thank God for the xbox one s which does have HDR
I've just switched over to VM as I already had broadband but I'm disappointed regarding the HD content available in the on demand area in particular. I'll give it a contractual year and if it doesn't improve I'm going to switch back to Sky. I suspect many others will too. I can't see why VM have gone to all the bother of significantly up rated hardware but done nothing regarding content. Doesn't make sense! They seem to ignore customers comments regarding this also. The lights on but no ones home.
The V6 box actually supports HDR too. Something which the Sky Q box does not. So it has the potential to be a better box overall. That and you don't have to pay 200 quid for it. But as you say there's no point if there's no content to use on it
I had engineers out this week and asked them when 4K content is coming and they said Virgin are having issues because of the bandwidth it requires, but they are still working on it as a matter of urgency. Don't forget that unlike Sky Virgin don't make their own programs.
I realise bandwidth could be an issue down coax but I can stream 4k down the internet via WiFi no problem. Without having to splash out making their own programs they could spend some money beefing up their internet based options.

I believe Sky Q supports HDR but both the V6 and Sky Q boxes both need updates to enable HDR.
From what I've read Sky needs a hardware update to be able to support HDR. Their HDMI ports are only 1.6s or something compared to virgins 2.2s. So whilst it will support 4k it isn't going to look as good as any potential 4k content supporting HDR that virgin put out
*if they put any out that is. Otherwise it is just for Netflix
