In previous years Eurosport had Red Button 4K/UHD for the French Open. Is this coming to Virgin Media TV this year?
Doesn't look like it - already active on SkyQ in 4K
Follow up will be the Olympics - as I understand it, Eurosport have the 4k rights for that as well - must now be a question as to whether that will be 4k on Virgin.
According to this press release you can watch it live on Eurosport which you can watch in both HD (channel 521 and 522) and in 4K HDR on Virgin Media (channel 205 and 999).
Channel 205 is Amazon Prime. Searching for the sport takes to the Eurosport player where you can start a 7 day free trial, then £6.99 a month after the free trial
Channel 999 is the normal Virgin TV Ultra HD channel and there's nothing showing for Eurosport on that channel or via red button on 999, or on either Eurosport channel.
This is the event line-up if you decide to try the free 7 day trial by accessing it through Amazon Prime
May 30th - June 1st: Round 1
June 2nd - 3rd: Round 2
June 4th - 5th: Round 3
June 6th - 7th: Round 4
June 8th -9th: Quarter-Finals
June 10th -11th: Semi-Finals
June 12th: Women’s Singles Final
June 13th: Men’s Singles Final

I cannot see Eurosport 4K anywhere on my TV 360 box. Am I alone in this or has it not appeared as suggested by What HiFi?
It has not appeared

These channels have been available on the EPG for several days now covering the Olympic football prelims.

Eurosport 4K is on channel 523.
If you have UHD TV and a V6 and the channel isn't showing then using your remote control go to
Help & Settings > Help > Virgin TV > go up to the top of the screen then TV Care and press OK > Missing Channels.? > Refresh my channels list
This may take around 15 minutes to complete, however you can continue to use the V6 as normal.
