FREE 4K trial of Planet Earth 2 for Sky Q and Virgin customers

I noticed that on the BBC iplayer on my Sky Q box that there is a free trial of planet earth 2 in 4K resolution.

In order to get and play this content you will need a Sky Q silver box or a Virgin TV V6 box,and of course a 4K display.

Ok the video isn't very long at 8 minutes long,but who doesn't like the planet earth series,and I'm sure there will be plenty of people looking for 4K content to test on their new TV.

I've not listed this under freebies as you have to be a paid customer to get this trial.

Have you watched it yet,if so,what's it like ?

Seriously damn good cant wait for the uhd disc

I`ve been a sky customer for years but this is the first time I`ve heard of Sky Q!
As a very basic customer, it doesn`t seem like something I`m likely to upgrade to

​It's not as expensive as they make out. I got the basic box for £10 a month and about £20 install charge.

why is this in deals section



If you read my description you will see that I did state that I didn't put it in the freebies section as you have to be a Sky Q or Virgin customer.

I bet if I had put it in the free section people would tell me it's not free as you have to pay for Sky/Virgin

nothing personal mate. honestly

just been annoyed with this site over the last year or so.

everything gets dumped in the deals section. the mods and vips do it all the time with deals that amount to nothing more than a voucher code or X% off sale on some random site, but stick a few examples items on to dress it up as deal.

my main point being that they should just do away with all the other sections and just have one. nobody looks or posts in the others.

How do you find the 4K version of this on any iplayer app ? As I can't seem to find it apart from on my Sky Q silver box on the iplayer section.

I have a android 4k TV and when I opened the app last week its said something about this demo in the beta section. That's as much as I remember I'm afraid.

Let's hope so

another voucher code posted as a deal. like a lot of them, this s actually already posted in the voucher section, for the past 2 days. In that time, it has got 30degress heat. in 9 hours, it got 220+ in the deal section. that's why everybody posts in the deals section, they get more heat.

​First world problems eh?

Only works on a small range of Panasonic TVs due to the type of 4k broadcast being sent so probably worth adding to the title (although I'm not sure how it's a deal either!) so people don't waste time trying to get it to work on their non-Panasonic 4K TVs.

Also you don't need Sky or Virgin either

Chill out Deedie.

​lighten up man

Yup, this should definitely be in the freebies section.
Lots of deals in freebies require associated device and/or subscription/membership to take advantage of the said deal.

just commenting so I can find it again she my q starts. hear added

#deedieforadminrole2017

Deedie I agree, there's far too much posting of deals in the wrong sections that goes on. Freebies often get lobbed into Deals so people can gain heat. Back in the old days it really wasn't like that, people managed to post things in the right sections consistently, leading me to believe it's either a.) intention or b.) stupidity.

Thanks for the heads up (regardless of where it was posted!)

Biggunspaul

Ok fair enough.But why you so bothered ?

No it will work on any 4K TV if watched via a Sky Q box or Virgin box.

If you read this link you will see that it says what you need to watch it on.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help/planet_earth_4k

If you have selected Panasonic TV's you don't need Sky or Virgin,as you can use the built in app on the TV.
