Premiere League Football In Ultra HD

Are Virgin going to show Premiere League football in Ultra HD this season as it is being broadcast by Sky and BT in that format this coming season ?

Unlikely it will be available via a third party provider like Virgin. And before you say it, don't forget that BT Sports is not actually part of the Sky package, so is not actually being offered by Sky. BT can sell direct to Sky's satellite customers as Sky do not own the satellites they use

Oh only i thought Virgin were going to upgrade their Tivo system to Ultra HD capability and if you have a 4k TV it is where you want to be watching it so it is a delicate situation to decide on

They would also have to negotiate new deals with Sky and BT who obviously want people to get their boxs

No official announcement, only rumours of a late 2016/early 2017 release.
