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
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

It doesn't say it'll be made available for web browsers
or g e t i p l a y e r, only for TVs, though I expect it's just a magic
"uhd" quality keyword that needs to be discovered, the SES and Astra UHD
H.265 test streams on 28.2E aren't bad.
