I never quiet understand this, granted it ain't the best, but I have Netflix, Amazon, Sky, Disney+, 4k UHD Player, I can tell you now, some of the sky broadcasts in UHD are the best I've seen.Is it 'half-decent picture quality'? Oh... no it isn't. That's me out then.
Sorry, not talking about Sky broadcasts, talking about NOW TV, where everything is 720p and in stereo. An absolute dinosaur of a service.I never quiet understand this, granted it ain't the best, but I have Netflix, Amazon, Sky, Disney+, 4k UHD Player, I can tell you now, some of the sky broadcasts in UHD are the best I've seen.
Ar fair do's sorry. I've never tried Now TV, I didn't even know that was the case, that is poor.
I recently paid for their Boost package and I honestly don't believe there's that much of an improvement in the PQ. I did a comparison between a channel 4 programme being broadcast presently that for some reason is also on NowTV, "Adult Material" and the Chanel 4 broadcast knocks the spots off the so called "boosted" HD NowTV stream. I shan't be renewing the "boost".
Apparently the new Now TV box/dongle does
It's a box capable of 4k, which means that the BBC iPlayer UHD programmes (of which there are 4 series available now) and all the Netflix 4k programmes are all playable on this box. The max output from NOWtv is 1080 if you pay for the boost package @£3/month extra.Apparently the new Now TV box/dongle does
1080p4K. Don't know about the audio.
Getting one may be tricky though....Buy NOW TV Smart TV Box, 4K HDR, with Voice Search from our Freeview, FreeSat, Digital Recorders & Streaming Devices range at John Lewis & Partners. Free Delivery on orders over £50.www.johnlewis.com
Edited to add, that live TV is still limited to 720p though.
The Now TV Smart Box is feature-packed and easy to use but you’ll need additional services for 4K playbackwww.expertreviews.co.uk
