Skysports UHD

Hi, guys. 

I see Virgin is now offering Sky Cinema content in UHD? Is there a hope to get Sky Sports in UHD? I see some older posts where it's mentioned that it was supposed to happen last year.

Thanks

Re: Skysports UHD

You are correct. This was supposed to happen in 2020. However, now that we are in the second half of 2021 and still no sign of it, God alone knows when, or indeed if, it might finally appear!

Re: Skysports UHD

Thanks for your response. BBC shows European championship In UHD and it make a huge difference for me. I might as well jump ship to Sky if virgin don't provide UHD at least by end of this year.

Re: Skysports UHD

Sky has Sky Sports UHD - VM and BT have BT Sports in UHD.   You will not get both at present on either platform and both are part-time.

Re: Skysports UHD

I understand your point but we can always get standalone BT sport subscription and use the app to stream in UHD. I can't wait to watch F1 in UHD.

Re: Skysports UHD

If Sky won't or don't agree to Virgin showing Sky Sports in UHD then it could just be a way of getting you to switch to Sky. I suspect if it does become available it will be an extra charge to existing users and free to new customer's and restart the ultimate oomph sky cinema uhd debate. 

Just my opinion and I would also like to see F1 in UHD.

Re: Skysports UHD

I only resigned my contract with virgin because the sales person on retention said sky sports UHD would be out in June, this year. Didn’t happen so as soon as my contract is up I’m moving to sky, fed up with false promises with virgin media now.

I hope @Paul_DN won't mind me clarifying one of their points, just to avoid any confusion...

Virgin Media don't carry Sky Movies UHD as linear broadcast channels, but do have Sky Cinema as UHD OnDemand content.
