Hi I had a reply from virgin media to clarify what I already no about 4k content all that is available Netflix / YouTube With the new v6 box, yes you can record 6 channels and it quicker at loading (woopie) I'm a virgin media customer and currently receiving all sports BT /sky, but now with the new v6 box why not ultra hd 4k I reckon that BT and sky are keeping it to there self's as this draws in new customers Let's face it with most people buying 4k tvs now surely don't they want the most out of there equipment and choosing the supplier that offers the most Come on virgin where are our ultra hd channels
The Magnificent Seven rides onto UK 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray with an excellent HEVC / H.265 encoded 2160p transfer framed in the movie's original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.39:1 widescreen. The UHD Blu-ray was reviewed on a Samsung UE55KS8000 Ultra HD TV and a Samsung UBD-K8500 Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Shot in 35mm, with the potential to yield full 4K picture quality, it proves to be yet another 2K-upscaled feature in UHD, with its VFX finished in 2K and a 2K Digital Intermediate technically limiting the end result. Despite this, it's an extremely impressive, textured visual spectacle which benefits from some lavish vistas and remains a frontrunner amidst the better looking titles currently available on the new format.
....does that mean, then, that presently, there is no point in buying a 4K TV as there is no 4K mainstream content?!

Indeed and as the fully compliant 4K Tv's with HLG, HDR, Dynamic Metadata and 2.1a HDMI won't be out until April 2018 anyone buying a 4K TV is at serious risk of wasting their money
....if this is the case, why are people buying 4K TVs then?! Would a 4K TV make the HD quality any better than say a standard 1080p HD TV?
People are buying 4K Tv's because they don't do their research, upscaling HD to 4K can look good or it can look awful it depends on how good the TV is at doing it. some manufacturers are better than others
