Sky Q adds HDR for Netflix

Sky Q subscribers will now be able to watch Netflix in HDR, the operator has announced.

The Comcast-owned operator said that HDR has been added for Netflix, building on pre-existing support for the superior visual format for Disney+ and select Sky content.

Now viewers are able to watch a wide range of Netflix shows and movies such as Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, The Haunting of Bly Manor and Enola Homes in HDR, with the company also announcing that it will add HDR versions of a number of its originals like Patrick Melrose and Code 404 in the coming weeks.

Sky will further increase the amount of HDR content available to Sky Q subscribers in the coming months, with more Sky Cinema HDR movies coming in time for Christmas and HDR live sport in 2021.

Fraser Stirling, Group Chief Product Officer, Sky, said: “It’s great to add Netflix’s HDR films and TV shows to the growing collection of stunning HDR content on Sky Q, giving our customers a brighter, bolder and more realistic viewing experience.

“Netflix HDR is the latest in a string of new features we’ve added to Sky Q, including; enhanced voice search, a sleek new home screen design and apps like Fiit and Roxi, making it easier for customers to find more of what they love in one place.”
