Well, it was definitely advertised 48hrs ago on the home screen banner for a 5.30pm start TODAY on UHD channel 999. Something must have happened with their negotiated contract with Sky for them to withdraw it. I have a feeling it maybe related to a last minute rights issues on the Virgin Go app which may have stalled the launch? Bizarre situation.

Surely BT have to make the euro finals available to all. That's totally different.

So, is this the reason why VM pulled the advert from the Home screen banner? What other way could VM take selected Premium UHD content and make available to its subscribers without breaching terms with Sky? Can the 4K signal be received by subscribers to Sky Sports HD Main Event channel to compatible 4K tv's but remains in just HD for 1080p tv's? In same way BT Ultimate UHD content is still received on non 4K tv's in just 1080 HD? So confused.

BT ultimate UHD is a different channel to BTSports so your logic doesn't apply.

I have the top package and it is included foc like the other BT Sport channels - I wouldn't know if this applies to users with lesser packages through Virgin.
