SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

Can anybody who has SkySports with their VirginMedia V6 box confirm if they can get 4K UHD. I'm hoping to get F1 in 4K on the V6 box.

Re: SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

We are getting Sky Sports UHD sometime this year.

When that will be is another question.

Virgin BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile. Cable customer since 1993

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more

Re: SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

Thanks.

I called up Virgin sales earlier and asked categorically if this was available now and the reply was yes. Even when I asked for their name and informed them that my conversations are recorded they still gave the same reply. I made a point to state NOT HD but UHD (4K).

I will probably have to wait to get concrete info from somebody who has SkySports on their V6 box when this actually takes place.

Re: SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

When it comes VM will shout about it from the rooftops. My guess is that 4K will be available for only part of the forthcoming F1 season.

I think it will be here for the new EPL season.

Re: SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

I guess it's just a waiting game but it doesn't look like it will here in the next few weeks for the start of F1.

I think I will still go with VM with the SkySports and BTSport all in one package as I've just got BB only on VM at the moment and SkyQ (Sports package) with BTSport as well on that.

HD is still ok, I'm still hoping for the uhd F1 channel to come, and it's July...

Re: SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

All we know is that it was touted in the press release from last year that it would be in 2020. 

It's now looking like it will either be for the start of the new Premier League season on Saturday, August 8 2020 (I'm not holding my breath or I'll look like a Smurf) 

Or maybe they are keeping it as a Christmas present for us? boing.gif

Maybe they are waiting until they can get BT Sport Ultimate working properly - see the thread re the sound on recordings, an error that was first reported a year ago.

Re: SkySports 4k UHD on the V6 box

I was under the impression that Sky Sports 4K was only available to Sky customers on their own platform and would never come to VM - has this changed then?
