My contract is up in September and a return to Sky is looking very tempting at the minute.
Interesting....again I was told £7 despite having ultimate volt, etc. I asked about the £4 and was told there's no such thing and it's £7 extra a month.
I'll try in a week or so and see what I'm quoted then
It's £4 extra if you've got Ultimate Volt with Sky Cinema & Entertainment UHD already.
If you don't it's £7 to add just Sky Sports UHD and £10 for both Sky Sports UHD and Sky Cinema & Entertainment UHD

I contacted via the web live chat and was told it was £3 extra
i already have sky cinema UHD at £6 extra per month so it seemed for me both cinema and sports was £9 extra
(this was reflected in the email)
Similar to what I had. They removed Movies UHD and Sports UHD didn't appear.
UK call centre fixed it while on the call with Sports UHD appearing and a discount too.
The man I spoke to this morning messed my package up. Stripped UHD instead of adding and put my bill up £4 a month.
After being passed from pillar to post on the phone I finally got through to a gentlemen in Swansea, who handled my complaint brilliantly. He informed me I will go back down to £65 and they’ll restore my UHD services, but but did confirm it is £7 for UHD and not £4 which I was told this morning. I agreed to this, as my I’m happy to get everything for £72. So Sky Sports UHD is now up and running. If only everyone in Virgin customer services were so good.
You'll find that most stuff on Main Event UHD is upscaled from HD. There is very little true UHD live sport on Sky still.
Most football is from EPL, EFL and WSL. Most UK based cricket too - and all live F1.
The cricket (I assume) is HD upscaled as SuperSport (S. Africa) don't do UHD to the best of my knowledge - so I think the football will probably be the first UHD programming proper.
Finally sky sports uhd up and running in HLG HDR and Dolby Atmos, however Ent and Cinema UHD has been removed despite me emphasising I just wanted sports uhd adding and and nothing taken off. I can't be bothered phoning again tonight so it'll be first thing in the morning, can't wait !
