I hope it's better than iTunes quality in the frame rate department. I've not seen any native iTunes Store content that has been >30Hz image rate?
iPlayer goes to 2160p50 HDR, and offers 720p50 for SDR HD content... iTunes stuff seems to be limited to 2160p24? (Maybe 30).
Netflix have the capability - their own test stuff is streamed at 60p. (Search for their test short 'Sparks')
I've not seen anything - yet - on Amazon Prime video that suggests they have a 50p or 60p workflow. I can't imagine they aren't considering it seriously now that they have so much sport.
Eurosport not running at 50Hz is incredibly disappointing though. It's almost as if they want streaming to be 'second class' compared to linear... (Like Sky presumably, for NowTV)
