To quote

"There are TV programme genres that do really benefit from being watched in HD, especially nature documentaries and live stadium sport."

I watch premiership football, test cricket and F1 all in UHD and it is much better than HD.

Sky have a good EPG policy of putting HD channels high on the EPG for people who have HD TVs. The only idiots that don't is BBC 1 which is SD probably because of their policy of not providing HD for the regional transmissions.

HD also supports Dolby Surround Sound both on satellite and terrestrial.

Actually Mike the BBC don't shoot anything in 4K. They use outside companies to do that. Even the Iplayer streams of wimbledon were provided by BBC R&D. As I mentioned before the BBC no longer hosts wimbledon as they could not provide the 4K picures demanded by many broadcasters across the world.

There are bandwidth problems with big sports events. Wimbledon coverage was very limited as was the european sports event. They did manage to put 2 wimledon games in UHD on satellite but they managed to mess it up with very washed out pictures.

Unfortunatly with freesat as far as I know there are no UHD receivers. Probably because no free to air channels have any plans for UHD.

Mike. I was suprized to read that you get 1080i from iplayer. On a pc if you right click on the screen it will tell you what the resolution is. For me it has always been 720p25.:

It was not over the top. It was just an apalling case of invasion of a persons privacy. Poking live TV cameras through the window of a private flat is totally unacceptable. I suspect the helecoptor was also breaking aviation low flying rules.
