I'm not sure if it was recorded in 4k friend

The best 4k HDR I have seen. So worth it.

Planet Earth II was shot in 4K from the beginning of filming (back in 2013). Unlike some Ultra HD Blu-rays, this transfer is the real deal: true, bona fide, native 4K stuff.

BBC downscaled 4 times to HD.

Ordered through amazon. Thanks o

Bought this the other day and I have to say it is absolutely my reference disc for showing off 4k/hdr, amazing.

Absolute reference disc. Put on my new LG OLED the other night, jaw hit the floor, absolutely mesmerising.

So lush colours in episode 2.

£25 now.

Can’t wait for Blue Planet 2 in 4k soon, will be stunning!

Exactly you paid for an inferior copy and they keep the better version to sell you.

Cool so you want a subscription based model too. You want it you pay for it. I don't pay Ferrari to drive a Ford, you want me to pay the BBC (rhymes with Operation Yewtree) to watch Sky News?

What about planet earth 1? That's the one I was referring lol

They did put some of it in 4k on IPlayer as I was given the option to watch a different version that way on my Firetv but tbh who wants to watched compressed 4k HDR? Nowhere near as good as it is on disc.

Planet Earth 1 was not shot in 4K. The full HD blu-ray transfer has as good a picture as it's going to get

Why not post some blu-ray deals, you've been a "member" for two years and not bothered posting anything, oh dear!

I have this, came free a Samsung UHD Bluray player. Must say I am not impressed with the picture quality. I have a HDMI 2.0b Certified cable and a 4K Samsung 40MU6400. Only watched the Islands and Mountain episodes so far, some of the close up scenes look detailed but nothing spectacular. However some of the footage in the mountains episode have me questioning whether it's even up to HD standard. I can't comment on the HDR aspect because the TV is not a 10bit panel.

Therein lies your problem. Watch it on a proper 4k, 10 bit HDR display and it looks nothing short of stunning.

You are wasting your time watching 4k content on that TV, especially at 40".

I'm afraid to say that Samsung TV you have is not great......just because something has 4k slapped on it doesn't mean picture will be great. HDR performance on this model is poor, and overall picture is average at best.

It's like feeding poor mp3s into a pair of £1000 headphones, the MP3 will still sound rubbish.

I only just upgraded to OLED 4k because I hadn't seen any 4k TV up until that point that beat the picture on my last generation Plasma which was 1080P

To really see what 4k can do I recommend going to look at a 75" calibrated LG or Sony OLED playing Planet Earth 2, then come and say you're not impressed....it's mind blowing

The opposite - it's like feeding full, uncompressed CD-quality audio files into a pair of headphones that you nicked from one of those sightseeing bus tours

this should have been expired last night...I did click the expire button but when nothing ever seems to happen

The TV is at the end of my bed with a six to seven foot distance so a 40 inch TV is ideal for my solution. You might want to research TV viewing distances before telling people they are wasting their time with something because I would consider myself quite knowledgeable in this area. True 10 bit panels displaying HDR do make a considerable difference to the viewing experience, however they only improve the dynamic range of colours and make no difference to the pixel count, which was my original gripe with the sometimes lacking image.

I appreciate that the TV is not great when compared to a 10 bit display or OLED TV, however I did a lot of research before buying. I wanted a 40 inch TV for the bedroom so size had to play a factor, A 55" OLED wasn't an option. For it's size it's one of the best on the market, which I appreciate isn't saying much. The first thing you need to appreciate is that I'm not your average tech noob, so while I appreciate the advice it's all information that I already know. My gripe was not with the dynamic range but the image PQ. If you've watched any of the making of videos you'd know that they used anything from 1080p cameras right up to 6K for shooting, so not all scenes are native 4K. For example the opening scenes with the mountain shots lack detail and the scene with the snow leopard's mating calls displays the surrounding rocks with soft out of focus footage. Some of the other chapters are more impressive and I've no doubt that the more brightly lit close ups would show vivid on a QLED while contrasty scenes would give inky blacks on an OLED.

I have researched viewing distances thanks. I suggest you do the same as 4k at 6-7 ft is a waste of time. To fully appreciate 4k on a 40" screen you need to be within 3.5 - 5ft.
