I've confirmed my Britbox tvOS 'softness' feel tonight. Playing content I already own via iTunes with the same material on Britbox. Britbox is inferior to the ITunes product BUT not a game changer. I await some content that recent and that I own to appear that's rich in Colour and Contrast to give a full assessment. This Judgement so far is based on the 'Nature's Great Events' series that's ten years old now and was a very early HD production, and was transmitted on the BBC HD Channel in the day, and might be hampered by that.

Judgement still out.

If anyone has the Apple TV app for Britbox, then if they have a Mac and Xcode (which is free) installed on it they can enabled Developer mode on the ATV which allows you to enable a playback HUD (an OSD) which tells you the resolution, frame rate and bit rate of the video stream being played.

The app has just come to Samsung Tizen TVs today. The streaming quality is passable, but there's a slight fuzz to it. I also question their HD flag on certain content (like Keeping Up Appearances for example!)

I'll give it a go for a bit. There doesn't seem to be any content to really pull me in just yet though.

I’d love it if they could get old series of Have I Got News for You, the kind of thing that doesn’t warrant a commercial release and hasn’t been repeated on TV in years (Dave don’t go very far back with their repeats now). I know they’re all on Dailymotion but they have pretty ropey quality.
