V6 - Sky Sports UHD and BT Sports UHD

Does anybody know when we are likely to see these channels on Virgin Media? I've just ordered my V6 presuming these will be available only to find out that they're not.

Thank you,

Re: V6 - Sky Sports UHD and BT Sports UHD

Hi Lee_Again, 

 

Thanks for your post. 

 

Currently these channels aren't available and we have no news on if or when they will be. 

 

The only 4K content we currently have with the V6 box is Netflix and YouTube. 

 

Thanks,

Sky Sports UHD is advertised by them as being exclusive to Sky until 2018.

I have a feeling that Sky and BT will hold onto these channels exclusively for as long as possible. It's a major swaying factor for new customers.

"IF" - Oh know. This is all the reason I need to move to Sky. Might as well cancel my V6 installation. £100+ for nothing. Sad times, I've been with VM for years.

I have just made exactly the same mistake, i feel as though i have been mugged. Been with them since Cable and Wireless, so much for loyalty hey?
