HD Boost

Just wondered if anyone's tried this? Assume it's supposed to be at least 1080i?


I can't really see a difference to what I had which was maybe 720p? on the Sky channels tagged 'HD' after the boost was applied.


I've got 75M fibre downstream and have an ethernet cable run between my router and Now TV box.


4k and HDR work ok with Netflix.

HD should be about 50% better than 720p, but both are being upscaled (HD by a factor of 4, 720p by a factor of 6)  onto your fairly small (nowadays!) 4K TV.


I think you would have to get up pretty close to see any discernible difference.

Set a Payment PIN on your account so that no-one but you can buy memberships on it.
Check your bank accounts monthly for any other unexpected payments to Now.
That way you can at least nip them in the bud, while you and Now figure out whose fault they are.
