Hi Guys, 

 

 

 

Anyone know or have any idea when OnDemand Content from SKY boxes will be in HD?

Is none of it in HD? I dont use it, but I did the other day for MotoGP, it looked like Sh$t. But the other thing I recorded looked normal

I got told it was HD in this thread:

Near bottom of page, was told to look at file sizes, and some stuff is at 720p.

 

I could still hear poping noises on Supergirl so gave up on it, even though in thread thought it was ok, I downloaded Game of Thrones s7 for some else to watch, first 10 minutes on that one sound was fine. (I’d already seen it so just watched first 10 minutes)

I only found out last night that SKY On Demand movies are not in HD. I have recently added SKY Movies to my subscription, but so far, I am rather disappointed with the quality.

 

I am waiting to see if the Apple TV app will be added to my 2017 Sony Bravia 4K TV. If not, I will buy another Apple TV 4K box, and ditch SKY Movies. SKY need to up their game, and soon; or they will lose subscribers to the superior streaming services.

Cancelled SKY MOVIES because of most movie channels being below the quality that I expect from a subscription service. The fact that no On Demand movies are in HD was the final nail in the coffin, so to speak.

 

My two 4K TV's will not be getting the Apple TV app or Airplay 2, so I have now got myself another Apple TV 4K for watching movies.

If you want HD on Demand the only Title available in HD is the SKY Ondemand Help Video ;)
