Watch the Euro's in UHD and HDR on iPlayer on V6 and TV360 boxes

Fans can experience the Euros in superb Ultra HD quality live on BBC iPlayer, as part of a trial from the BBC. Viewers with compatible TVs and a high-speed internet connection will be able to watch 22 of the BBC's games in Ultra-High Definition and High Dynamic Range, including the first games in the competition for Wales, England and Scotland.

Info above from https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/mediapacks/euro-2020 

Don't forget you will also need a compatible TV  <<< listed here >>> 

The first few matches will be

  • Turkey v Italy
  • Wales v Switzerland
  • England v Croatia
  • Scotland v Czech Republic
  • Spain v Sweden

<cough>  Sadly iPlayer on Sky Q is “not currently supported” rolf.gif

Re: Watch the Euro's in UHD and HDR on iPlayer on V6 and TV360 boxes

Are people getting UHD and HDR on iPlayer? I'm not and am not sure if it's a problem with VM (I have a V6) or my Philips OLED805.

Re: Watch the Euro's in UHD and HDR on iPlayer on V6 and TV360 boxes

Hi Roger_Gooner,

I had UHD and HDR on iPlayer watching the Wales game on my 360 box.

You might need to go into the iPlayer app settings > Settings & Help > Video Quality > and select Best Quality

According to the  <<< BBC specs >>>   your Philips OLED805 is listed as compatible.

Nothing much technically here, but there is football related stuff.

I thought England had already gone out on penalties.  Can't get behind the football at all, and they haven't won a World Cup in 56 years (longer than I've been alive).  There's 11* competitions to go before 2066 (that'll be a 100 years since an England win) and 2030 marks 100 years of the World Cup itself.

*Presuming they go ahead

I've done that and I'm using the Standard (not the beta) player. I get HDR on Prime Video, so at least that works. But I get HDR from the TV's iPlayer, so something's going wrong when the source is the V6.

Re: Watch the Euro's in UHD and HDR on iPlayer on V6 and TV360 boxes

Makes no difference if I use the standard or BETA player, and have just discovered that I'm not getting HDR on YouTube. I'm getting increasingly annoyed as I can usually figure these things out.
