Chances of Virgin agreement terms for BT Sport Ultimate UHD HDR feed?

Following what feels like an eternity of testing, BT are finally in a position to offer full UHD HDR streams via the BT Sport Ultimate channel, starting tomorrow, 23rd November.

At the moment, the UHD HDR streams aren't available via BT TV boxes but they soon will be once their new box is announced. What are the chances of Virgin agreeing on terms for the HDR content?

Obviously this is based on whether or not BT are keeping it as an exclusive feature for their own customers but if not, it would be good to hear from Virgin as to whether any talks are taking place or if they're possible in the short term?

Don't get too excited as HDR content is only available to BT and 5G EE customers on the BT Sport mobile app and only when watching in HD.

From tomorrow the HDR stream will be available in UHD.

You need a subscription direct to BT Sports - which is the only way Sky customers have access to the regular BT channels.

That’s not correct at all and I wouldn’t have posted my comments had it been. Keep up.

Sorry ozsat, my comment wasn't aimed at you as your post was factual. It was aimed at the completely incorrect post from "Roger_Gooner".

Apologies for the confusion.
