Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

Good afternoon, 

Is there any update on when Sky Sports 4k / Ultra HD will arrive on the V6 box?

Cheers

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

I think the press release implied it was due next year.

VIVID 500 (500/35mb) in Area 31

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

I thought this was only available to Sky customers?

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

OK so hopefully UHD / 4K Sky Sports and Sky Cinema in 2020. Anyone at Virgin actually confirmed it yet?

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

The press release is from VirginMedia.  Sky Cinema is NOT in UHD on Sky - they provide some films as OnDemand in UHD.

But the press release says "Sky Cinema Original" films - not general films.

Thanks. 

It will be good just to get more 4k content via the V6 box. 

It would also be great if Virgin Media could confirm when it's actually all happening!

Cheers

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

Hopefully this will come earlier in 2020 rather than later in 2020, coming from sky to virgin you really do notice the lack of UHD on sports.

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

Not sure how as BT UHD has far more UHD than Sky does.

Re: Sky Sports Ultra HD / 4k

....let me guess - if Sky Sports UHD DOES come to VM, we are going to have to pay for the privilege aren't we (I already have to pay extra just to get this in HD)?!!
