      Q hdr

      With, it seems, no plans for Q to broadcast in HDR at any time in the near future, a couple of questions:- firstly, will it make much difference if and when it does? In advance though, would an HDR capable 4K tv make much difference now, and then if and when HDR on Q comes on stream?

      I am toying with the idea of upgrading my garden variety 4K tv to one that has HDR built in and wondered if it was worth it, both now and in the future.

      Re: Q hdr

      I have a LG OLED and have seen the difference between the Blu-Ray of Lucy and the HDR version and there is a considerable difference which is very marked with a much richer palette of colour. I seen other films with HDR and I am glad I have the option. I would recommend checking it out in your nearest TV Dealer and see for yourself.

      Re: Q hdr

      I have watched The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime with/out HDR and would agree, there is a vast improvement in the colours when using HDR.

      Re: Q hdr

      There are a few people still squabbling over a suitable broadcast standard for HDR content. When this is finally resolved, I'm sure that they'll then make suitable preparations for broadcasting suitable content and also making content available via Sky's CUTV service.

      As for whether HDR is better than non-HDR, yes it can be. It is still possible to mess with your TV's settings and mess them all up.
