(Pocket-lint) - Sky added HDR to a selection of its Sky Q boxes in May 2020, with the launch of three nature programmes.

Since then, many more Sky TV series and 4K movies have been added in the HLG format - the HDR standard of choice for broadcasters. And that's just the tip of the iceberg as the list will expand greatly throughout 2021.

For now though, here's a list of all the Sky Q 4K HDR content currently available on the platform.

Also, if you want to find out if your Sky Q box is HDR ready, head over to our feature here: How to watch HDR on Sky Q and check if your box is compatible. Or you can find out how to get your own box upgraded if it's not on the supported devices list.
