Re: When will we finally see HD live streams and 1080p on-demand picture quality?

No worries my friend, thanks anyway.

Either way it’s best to use the device that you don’t use very often or at least to some form of daily driver if the build has things like bugs and instabilities and the alike 😜

Glad you’re enjoying anyway, so I’m assuming you can confirm that the multichannel audio is part of the 1080p video stream? Also are you getting improved frame rate on the video side of things?

Assuming everything that your viewing right now is part of the final build.

Sorry for the questions I’m just curious and very interested, me being a nerd just peaked at 1000 😜

Just to make you aware, @gavs82008 is unable to answer your questions as being part of any trial means taking a vow of secrecy, namely an NDA. Although you don't physically SIGN one it is part of the T&Cs upon being accepted onto a trial. Breaking it can lead to expulsion from any trials you may be involved in.

Re: When will we finally see HD live streams and 1080p on-demand picture quality?

Fair enough

Didn’t realise NDA’s were involved if I knew I wouldn’t of asked, makes sense I guess.

This Samsung set, not quite 2019, but only released in November 2018, is still current in their range, so I think it just about squeaks in under your criteria:-

43” may well be the new 32”, but nobody told our bedroom 😳

No wonder I’m wanting to keep our 2012 32in Samsung (HD and 3D!) in the other bedroom alive with a smartness transfusion from a Roku Stick......

"HD Ready" is not HD though. This is one of the many areas where NOW TV falls miles behind its competition.

We won’t ever. Sky own it and sky want you to pay for sky Q for HD.

Hi @rEUnite

 

If you are prepared to stump up the extra £3 for a Boost Pass and have a suitable Boost supported device then you can watch NowTV in 1080p.

 

I believe out of the live channels only Fox is not broadcasted at 1080p when using a Boost Pass.

They want you to stump up £3 a month extra for last decade's HD.  Hahahahahahaha

 

Typical Sky with the old shows and films it's only the very cheap deal that keeps me for the odd program.  And now GoT has ended and Westworld has gone up it's own behind.

 

Wife got a really cheap movie pass deal from them last month, we looked for something last night and not one film we fancied watching.  It used to be Sky had all the best premiers but that's long gone.
