Updated: Nov 15, 2020
Sky Q now offers Netflix 4k with HDR. The update, live from today, means users no longer have to sacrifice HDR when opting to watch Netflix via the Sky platform.
The streamer offers a huge amount of content in 4k HDR, including new shows like David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, Emily in Paris and The Haunting of Bly Manor and Enola Homes. Netflix joins a variety of HDR content available on Sky Q, including Gangs of Lemur Island and Malawi: Wildlife Rescue, Sky originals like Britannia II, Cobra, Bulletproof 2 and Save Me Too.
Sky will expand its own HDR offer later this month, with Patrick Melrose, Code 404 and new Sky Nature shows: America’s Wild Border and A Bee’s Diary in November. The Secret Garden will be the first Sky Cinema original film available in HDR, with more Sky Cinema HDR movies coming in time for Christmas and HDR live sport in 2021.
Disney+ customers can also get a selection of movies and shows in HDR as well.
“It’s great to add Netflix’s HDR films and TV shows to the growing collection of stunning HDR content on Sky Q, giving our customers a brighter, bolder and more realistic viewing experience,” says Fraser Stirling, Group Chief Product Officer, Sky. “Netflix HDR is the latest in a string of new features we’ve added to Sky Q, including; enhanced voice search, a sleek new home screen design and apps like Fiit and Roxi, making it easier for customers to find more of what they love in one place.”
