    UK live-streaming TV service TVPlayer has announced what is says is a UK first with the launch of its new recording feature: enabling online TV viewers to record in the cloud.

    The launch of the network personal video recorder (nPVR) service marks a key development for TVPlayer, with the platform now being able to supplement its existing linear service with the ability to record live TV to generate catch-up content.

    They should probably fix their picture quality first. Most of what they offer is well below SD, and is unwatchable on any modern screen.

    I have a 65" 4K OLED. Freeview is completely unwatchable on it, it's just a sea of pixels and compression artefacts. TVPlayer's quality is far below that.

    The lowest end content I can possibly get away with is BBC iPlayer, which is 720p at 5mbit, but it's still rough. The lowest I consider acceptable is Netflix's 1080p.

    That is a known fault of your hardware scaling on some 4K TV. It is the same as trying to scale a postage stamp at standard resolution, to fill a IMAX screen. Computer generated junk. Anyway you bought a 4 K TV to watch 4 K media, so why do you watch lower resolution media?

    Agree with this. Absolutely terrible picture quality.

    There's not much choice some of the time. Aside from Blue Planet 2, iPlayer is all 720p.

    There's no scaler on earth which could make TV player or freeview look good on a large 4K TV. Garbage in, garbage out.
