The Forum's latest data indicates that three-quarters of the world's UltraHD services are predominantly linear, serving more than 125 million viewers. The other quarter of VOD-based UltraHD services serve 180 million viewers. According to the Forum, half of all the UltraHD services now offer HDR, while almost a quarter include some form of Next Generation Audio. The UHD Service Tracker is available at https://ultrahdforum.org/uhd-service-tracker/. Ultra HD Forum members have access to a large volume of additional data.
