Changing Sky TV setting instantly makes your shows and movies look better | The Sun

A SIMPLE Sky TV trick can make the tell you watch look much better.

It only takes a few seconds to change – and it can make a world of difference.

We're talking about the download quality of your on-demand Sky content.

You can actually choose from three different quality settings.

These options include SD (Standard Definition), HD (High Definition), and UHD (Ultra High Definition).

The latter is the best, and roughly equivalent to 4K.

There are a few things to bear in mind.

Firstly, downloading content in higher quality means that the files will be bigger.

Downloading in UHD takes up a lot more space than HD, and far more than SD.

So if you download loads of content, you might want to be wary of selecting UHD.

However, it could get you into a good habit of deleting content you don't need any more.

You can also choose to download individual shows in SD, HD or UHD if you prefer.

The second thing to note is that these settings won't make much difference if you don't have the right TV.

Many modern TVs now support 4K Ultra HD – and even large sets can be bought quite cheaply now.
