The Walking Dead 9 not in 1080p 5.1 with Boost

NOW TV black box

Entertainment Pass with Boost

300Mbps ultrafast broadband

 

The Walking Dead 9 does not play in 1080p 5.1, even though it should according to the logos.

 

Over the past few weeks I've successfully watched several series, all in 1080p 5.1 (eg Succession 1, Ray Donovan 5-7, The Affair 4-5, Twin Peaks: The Return etc).

 

I'm aware that the PQ in general for The Walking Dead is grained but the PQ on NOW TV is blurry 720p and the audio is 2.0. Logo shows HD 5.1.

 

Will this be fixed anytime soon?

Anything on the FOX channel is not part of the 1080p HD boost. 

This is probably to do with Disney owning FOX and down to rights. The below link provides details on what the Boost covers.

You can watch all of the following in 1080p with NOW TV Boost:

  • All the Sky Sports channels – plus, you can watch Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League at 50fps
  • All the live Sky Cinema channels, plus all on-demand movies
  • All the live Entertainment channels except Fox, plus selected box sets 
  • All the live Kids channels except Cartoonito and Nicktoons, which aren’t in HD, plus limited on-demand kids' episodes.

hayu box sets aren’t currently available in HD.

@gavs82008: Thanks a lot, missed that part of the fine print. Will have to wait for it to become available on Amazon Prime, then.
