The BBC has announced a new treat for Ultra HD and nature fans – Sir David Attenborough’s latest landmark series, Dynasties, will be available in Ultra HD on iPlayer from November 11th.
Each episode of the series, which follows individual animals including lions, chimpanzees, and emperor penguins, at the most critical period in their lives, will be to stream following their broadcast on BBC One.
Audiences have already enjoyed Ultra HD coverage of the FIFA World Cup and the Wimbledon Championships, plus Sir David’s Blue Planet II, as part of the BBC’s Ultra HD trials and will now be able to enjoy its latest landmark series with “an extra layer of realism and detail”.
Matthew Postgate, Chief Technology and Product Officer, BBC, said: “Dynasties is exactly the kind of landmark BBC programme that audiences want to see in Ultra HD.
“We’ve been trialling Ultra HD over the past couple of years as we reinvent the BBC, and it’s clear that people enjoy the increased quality.
“We believe our Ultra HD coverage is some of the best around – combining the higher resolution with a wider of range of colours and HDR, which really brings our world-class programmes alive.”
Dynasties in Ultra HD will be available to UK audiences with a compatible TV and a high speed internet connection.
More than 700 different devices and platforms are now supported by the BBC’s Ultra HD trials with a full list of compatible systems available here.
