Is that one of the interactive shows? Why the heck can’t Netflix’s tvOS app support that? I mean an Apple TV is BETTER suited to that than any Roku hardware is 🤦🏻♀️The only thing I know of that a Roku can do that Apple TV can't is watch Bandersnatch on Netflix.
I think FireTV, the cube 2 and current 4K stick, is the only platform that supports HLG and HDR10+. AppleTV only supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, Roku only HDR10...although maybe Xbox One supports HLG and HDR10+ also, I’m not sure.As for the Super Bowl:
The tech manager for TNF is a friend. His summary of what is available currently:
TNF originates in the truck as 1080p59.94 HDR (HLG with BT 2100 color space).
Then they make a 1080p SDR feed, a 720p SDR feed, and an uprezzed UHD HDR version for DirecTV and Verizon and some others.
They are currently testing originating UHD HDR in house, and expect to have it fully up and running by Super Bowl.
So if you're watching in UHD, it's an uprezzed 1080p59.94 source.
I've had a series of ATVs and have 2 new TCLs running Roku. Couple observations:I have to ATV - two versions before 4K.
Really not thrilled with remote, but can deal with it.
Have Roku in Bedroom and like it.
Looking to add/replace ATV on main TV and looking to go with ROKU Ultra/4K. Though price is small issue, I just seem to like the Roku interface and remote better.
Watch mostly Hulu (no ads), CBS, Prime and Netflix. Stream locally via Flex occasionally. Sonos soundbar with surrounds and sub.
Thoughts? What am I missing?
For what it's worth, Apple maybe adding support for AV1 soon, which should take care of long standing 4K incompatibility with YouTube.Seems like Apple refuses to support anything but their standard, thus why I have a Roku.
Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. You can't watch 4k video on the world's number one video delivery platform via ATV.Here's the wiki that compares Apple TV to Apple TV app.

As for HLG, tvOS apps are fully capable of dynamically converting it to HDR10 (as YouTube app has been doing, albeit at 1080p).
