Sky is adding 40 new movies for Christmas – and they’ll look incredible if you have this common TV

SKY Q is getting 40 new movies in 4K HDR just in time for Christmas.

An option to watch the films in this high quality will appear if your Sky Q box and TV are HDR-compatible.

A TV that has a combination of 4K and HDR (high-dynamic range) means it can provide super sharp cinema-like quality.

The new film selection will be avaliable on Sky Q boxes from December 9.

You will also need a Sky Cinema subscription.

The lineup includes some new films as well as classics that aren’t currently avaliable on Sky Cinema.

Look out for all of the Harry Potter movies, the new The Secret Garden, Dolittle, Le Mans 66 and the Back to the Future trilogy.

There will also be new films premiering after December 9.

These include Little Women and Emma.

Fraser Stirling, Group Chief Product Officer at Sky, said: “We’re continuing to add new features to Sky Q and Sky Go, with updates almost every week, so your Sky TV experiences keep getting even better. 

“You can watch more TV and movies in stunning HDR picture quality, get personal with voice search, enjoy more sporting action anywhere with Sky Go, and find more of what you love with our simple homepage, easy.”  

Sky TV series will also become avaliable in HDR including Gangs of London and Chernobyl.

A lot of modern TVs are HDR compatible.
