Kei+M 8211; a Sky Community Manager 8211; said: 8220;I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s unlikely that the UK will be seeing HDR until late next year at the earliest. We’ve pushed it back whilst we work on other priorities.8221;
HDR has seemed like a no brainer for Sky Q for quite some time 8211; it even launched HDR services in Italy during 2018, while BT has pressed ahead with its own HDR service 8211; now part of the BT Ultimate offering.
Sky was also supposed to bring Sky without a dish 8211; supposedly called Sky X 8211; to the UK during 2019 but that too didn8217;t happen. Sky instead chose to launch Now TV Boost, bringing Full HD to Now TV instead of 720p. The update 8211; announced in November 8211; also brings with it Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.
