Hi. New to the forum.
I purchased the uhd Sky sports but I’m not totally happy with it. Although the picture is clearer it has lost contrast and colour depth. It’s not bad and you can almost get used to it but it’s not right. I think I might cancel the subscription unless I can get this sorted. Anyone else having similar problems?
Even the menu turns dark when on the channel.
Do you have the same problem when you paly UHD content on BBC iPlayer through your V6 box?
If so it's probably because the Sky Sports UHD channel is in HLG, the same as UHD content on iPlayer.
It seems to affect Samsung TV's more than others, if you have a Samsung then check your Gamma setting isn't too high, try 2.2
If you have an LG TV try turning HDMI Ultra HD Deep Colour on or off to see if that helps.
Hi there @jskemp76, thanks for reaching out to us on the forums. 👋🏼
I'm sorry to hear about the Sky Sports UHD being darker when viewing. 😞
May I ask if you've checked the thread link given to see if it is your Gamma settings on your TV?
Let us know.

Live HDR broadcasts and streams from Sky Sports, Eurosport and BBC iPlayer are in HLG, and some TVs (usually cheap ones) handle all versions of HDR poorly and the expensive ones are often incorrectly set up. You can post your TV make and model here and on other forums for help.
