My TV developed a screen fault last month so I decided despite the lack of UHD / 4K transmissions I would buy one to be future proof.
I'm quite pleased that it does do a good job of upscaleing HD to UHD
Sadly BT Sport4K only seems interested in football and I'm someone who hates it with a vengence.
VM's Ultra HD does broadcast some interesting programmes but the EPG is dire, I've lost count of the number of programmes I have set to record only to find I have 50 minues of the previous programme, and despite setting a 30 minute buffer missed the last part of the recording.
Last night was a classic, the programme about Chile was overrun by some classical thing, the later repeat was not about Chile but one of the Great Lakes and that was out of sequence and I only found out when I went to 999 and it was half over.
If you want to justify the upcoming price increases at least get the EPG working correctly and how about a bit more UHD / 4K content.
MLB in HD on BT is barely watchable (I suspect it's 720p upscaled to 1080i)
If it's 720p then it might well be 720p60 from ESPN which BT Sport upscales to 1080i which in turn gets upscaled to 2160p50 by either the V6 or the 4K TV. Ideally both BT and VM should pass through 720p for the TV to do a single upscaling.
Why would they bother going to the expense of using their service to broadcast a minor sport in the UK in UHD? Considering the market is still in its infancy, there are still major sports not broadcasting at this standard. You could say that Sky could offer NBA games (which are also available in UHD in the US) but they choose not to because it wouldn't be worth it for the return on viewers/advertising.
