Wimbledon 4K

I gather that there is 4K coverage from Centre Court, available through V6 box and iPlayer. 

How do I access this? My iPlayer only shows usual channels?

Thanks.

Re: Wimbledon 4K

The Centre Count is in UHD on the iPlayer app - if you have a 4K tv connected and enabled in the tv menus.

You have to select the full Wimbledon list which is on all iPlayers - and the 4K version will flag UHD.

Re: Wimbledon 4K

Ok, I've been looking at the iplayer app and have picked up the Centre Court from there, no mention on my app that this is 4k, although when I selected it the initial went black quickly and a sharper version appeared. Looks pretty good but no specific ref to it being 4k. 

 

Does that sound right?

Re: Wimbledon 4K

Thanks, it didn't, so I wasn't.

I wonder what's going on? I've got a 4k TV, gets other 4k stuff ok.  I've got a V6, I've got iPlayer.

My iplayer does say it's a "beta" version, wonder if it is to do with that?

Bizarre.

Thanks for replies.

Re: Wimbledon 4K

I've set the iPlayer back to "normal", not Beta. Re-booted V6. Still no mention of UHD on the Centre Court option on iplayer, either on the screen where the courts are listed or on screen from the Centre Court feed.

Anyone else getting the UHD or is it a myth?

Re: Wimbledon 4K

Bear in mind that the iPlayer 4K streaming is limited to some tens of thousands on a first come first served basis.

Re: Wimbledon 4K

It could be you have not enabled UHD/HDR via the tv menus - do you get Netflix in HDR on the V6?

What model tv do you have?

...does it?

When I was watching the England v USA World Cup game last night in 4K on iPlayer, nothing showed on the screen to signify the stream was in 4K other than my own TV's 'Info' banner (or does this only happen for HDR content)?!

Re: Wimbledon 4K

The football last night wasn't 4K, only WImbledon is. Any BBC UHD/4K broadcast will say "BBC UHD" in the top right.

When you select centre court there should also be a message asking you to select either Watch Live in UHD, Watch Live in HD or Watch from Start.
