Sky adds 4k HDR TV shows, previews autumn slate of Sky Originals

Sky is expanding the number of shows it has available in 4k HDR. Originally launched on the back of its Sky Nature channel, the broadcaster has now made the second season of psychedelic sword and scandal series Britannia, political drama Cobra, and cop action show Bullletproof 2 (from Aug 13) available for download in High Dynamic Range format.

These will be followed by Lennie James’ acclaimed Save Me Too, later in the month and Sky originals A Discovery of Witches and Brassic 2 in September.

Home cinema and sports fans are being kept waiting for news of movies in 4k HDR. There’s nothing fresh on that front, although the satcaster has confirmed that it will  “have Sky Cinema movies in HDR in time for Christmas, with HDR live sport available in 2021.”
