4K image is looking good…
At the time of writing, Sky’s Ultra HD service hadn’t yet gone live, but we did get to see some 4K content at a special press briefing.
And the initial signs are very promising. The 4K clips we were shown consisted of movies, sport and natural history programming, and picture quality certainly appears to be an improvement on a normal hi-def picture.
In the opening forest scene of The Revenant, every ripple and reflection on the water comes across as real and packed with detail.
Movies and football will be high on the list of go-to 4K content, so we turn to sport, and the clarity of image seems very impressive with good motion and bright punchy colours thrown into the mix. You can read a full 4K update on whathifi.com
