When is UHD coming?

When is UHD going to be available via Virginia? Sky is now broadcasting in UHD but Incan't see I Told! Thinking of going back to them if it's not soon.

Re: When is UHD coming?

When the V6 box is launched you will get UHD content. OD content is likely to be available first. Channel content will be dependent on whether BT or Sky are prepared to wholesale their UHD channels.

Re: When is UHD coming?

1. When is the V6 box being launched???

2. What is "OD"?

3. How likely is it that BT and Sky will wholesale their UHD channels and when will this issue be resolved (are we talking weeks/months/years???)?

 

Thank you.

Re: When is UHD coming?

1) To be announced

2) On Demand

3) Depends whether the channel owners want VM's customers money, or whether they will just sit on their channels, not offer them wholesale & use them to try poaching customers from Virgin & other operators (as Sky currently do with Sky Atlantic).

Re: When is UHD coming?

1) TBA.

2) On Demand.

3) They won't. Sky will never offer Atlantic or any UHD content to Virgin or any other broadcast platform.
