Will Sky Q be boosted to 8K for Das Boot?

While Sky Ticket waiting for its UHD upgrade, the question arises whether the Sky Q platform could perhaps become the first true 8K platform. After all, the Sky original “Das Boot” is already being produced in 8K.

When pay-TV provider Sky announced the production of the current season of the original series “Das Boot” in 8K some time ago, many a customer asked: How will it be possible to receive the series event in such high picture quality or retrieve? After all, none of the previously established sources for the Sky program is 8K-compatible – Sky Q IPTV has not even been upgraded to UHD at the moment.

Then the cooperation between Sky and Samsung finally revealed that the 8K episodes of “Das Boot” will be shown in spring 2022 via Samsung TV Plus on the manufacturer’s corresponding TV sets. The question remains: Is a corresponding upgrade planned for Sky Q in order to bring customers without a Samsung TV on board? DIGITAL TELEVISION asked Sky.

Is 8K coming for Sky Q?

DF: 8K is the next step in the TV evolution, which is already being implemented by some manufacturers in the hardware area. At the moment, however, there is a lack of content and reception options of this magnitude across the board. Now the latest season of the Sky original “Das Boot” has been produced in 8K and we are wondering: How will Sky customers who do not benefit from the Samsung TV Plus cooperation be able to enjoy the full resolution? Is Sky still planning its own solution for 8K reception via Sky Q for 2022?

Sky: An 8K solution is not planned for 2022, especially since very little content is still being produced in 8K. With Sky Glass we will set new standards in terms of 4K picture quality – pictures with a billion colors, perfect contrast and a great 4K Ultra HD technology. This also includes six power speakers, impressive subwoofers and 360 degrees of Dolby Atmos.
