<Quote>It wasn't like it was widely available on UHD so no upgrade path. (BBC Iplayer: internet connection,smart television and if you were in the lucky first few thousand permitting. Also most TV's are hooked up via WiFi and we know what that can be like) </Quote>
People where buying new UHD and HDR HLG TV to see the new services that BBC were putting out .
I have my UHD HDR TV connected to 5Ghz wifi and not had a problem, sounds like someone needs a new router?
The signal was in UHD HDR is you wanted it on iplayer... The England vs Tunisia game proved to be BBC most streamed live event up to that date. BBC stopped access to UHD in the first half for a short period of time as they re-balanced traffic across our CDNs to optimise performance. Things calmed down a bit and they re-enabled UHD access at half time. BBC had just over 35,000 UHD viewers at this point but were shipping around 5Tbits of data per second across all services.
