Den, they've signed a deal. There's a reason why it hasn't happened yet, and as we don't know what's going on in the background, it's difficult for anyone to comment with anything factual.

It could be as simple as an agreement the deal will be implemented on 1 October. Nobody knows. It is pure speculation that the implementation date is fixed to the start of the Premiership season. I said earlier that I thought it was more likely to be geared to contractual expiry/implementation dates. This is looking increasingly likely.

And was not the press release pretty vague and non specific.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

The press release was vague, but it was 14 months ago!!! No way should it have taken this long since making that announcement.

Look how long Sky took to add full HD to NowTV from the announcement
(About 2 years)

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

Intersting to see under tv listings on my FotMob app that for the Burton v Villa match that it is being shown on Sky Ultra HD 1.

I don't recall it being called that before which sounds like more than one linear channel rather than a red button channel to me. It makes me wonder if we will eventually be getting more than one Ultra HD channel whenever it launches.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

There are two Ultra streams on Sky - which are often called 1 and 2 but that means nothing to the user.

If you manually tune them in they appear as UHD1 and UHD2 - but not is not seen in the menus for access.
