UPDATE: Disney has updated its Help Centre page with new information about 4K on Sky Q. It says that Sky is working to bring UHD content to the Q platform this year, and that “customers will be able to enjoy Disney+ in full UHD this summer”.
The original article follows…
That’s due to Disney Plus only being available on Sky Q in HD and not 4K. Sky has said that they “will be adding Disney+ content in UHD later this year”, but there’s no exact word on when it will arrive.
That’s something of a double-whammy for Sky customers as the Q box doesn’t support HDR either. The HDR update has been long been in the works but the release has been shifted a number of times. The HDR is expected to arrive either later this year or possibly early 2021.
Currently titles are only listed as being available in 5.1, but the app only plays sound through our TV instead of through the soundbar. We imagine this may either be a compatibility issue, or Disney dialling back bandwidth due to streaming restrictions with the Coronavirus outbreak.
By opting for an annual membership, you can save 15% as opposed to paying the monthly rate for Disney Plus. For classics like The Simpsons and Recess, alongside modern staples like Frozen 2 and The Mandalorian, it's an absolute bargain.
