Watching via Panasonic FZ802, well-known calibrator Vincent Teoh (HDTV Test) tweeted...

If you can't watch #ENGTUN in @UHD4k HDR on BBC iPlayer, you're not missing out on much. I'm seeing sub-UHD resolution, compression artefacts, muted colours & slow-mo motion ghosting, probably due to bit-rate management by BBC.

How do you 'tune in'?

I've been to iPlayer at the start of a BBC match and can't seem to find the UHD stream.

I know it's limited to the first so many, so when is the best time to try and get on?

I just selected iPlayer from the TV app screen and the current match was the first option.

Not all tellys support it. Maybe that's the issue, if you can't see an option to watch UHD content?

EDIT: Even if it's a 4K HDR TV

Doesn’t your TV need to support HLG?

Oh dear, We've got a 2016 Samsung KS8000 which is HDR 1000, I'll check if that's compatible.

Thanks to you both for your prompt replies.

Apparently it's one of the few Sammy's that's not supported!! However, if we use iPlayer via Virgin Media with a v6 box we can get it.

I tried and we did, but binned it off after a few minutes after dropouts with the sound and buffering of the image.

It was a nice picture while it lasted.
