Default Blue Planet II Comes To iPlayer In 4K HDR

"The BBC's Blue Planet II programme is to become its first TV series to
be made available in 4K resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) colour
via its iPlayer catch-up service.

All seven episodes of the marine-themed show are being made available to
UK-based owners of select TVs.

Until now, the BBC had only released programmes in this format via
ultra-high definition (UHD) Blu-ray discs."

But what they don't say is whether the dynamic compression management
system employed on iPlayer's servers will allow end-users to download
the programmes without them being ruined by over compression at download
