If you are a Sky Q UHD sky subscriber with a capable TV you get HLG at no addiontal cost..... currently as you never know with sky!

A lot of talk about what boxes will or won't be able to play this content, only quote from sky current is
“Our newer Sky Q 1TB UHD and 2TB boxes support HDR. Some of our older Sky Q boxes do not support HDR"

Are these 3 additional channels or 3 renamed channels?
Need to edit your link to include the "y" Sounds like sky nature replaces love nature maybe hopefully it'll stay on VM as well

Thanks for this yeah looks like my 2tb box isnt capable.
May I recommend that you watch the McMillions documentary about how millions were scammed out of McDonalds in the 90s using their Monopoly game. It features an FBI agent called Doug Mathews who has more charisma than a lot of actors and him alone makes it worth watching.
