Re: Sky Cinema and Entertainment UHD to launch

Existing Ultimate Oomph customers have to pay for this. That seems very unfair.

The link says that NEW customers get it free of charge. I've gone to ondemand and it shows that if I want to watch a uhd movie I have to upgrade.

For TV 360, I think it requires 4.30 firmware. Don’t know about V6.

I'm an existing ultimate oomph subscriber and the 4k movies work for me using on ondemand. Doesn't really help you, but they are free for existing subscribers.

Says I need to upgrade when I select UHD movies in on demand. Maybe it depends when you signed up for Ultimate Oomph as does seem to clearly say new customers

Re: Sky Cinema and Entertainment UHD to launch

UPDATE---I've just looked at my tv again and it's changed since first thing this morning. It now says I am subscribed to uhd movies and entertainment. I've tried playing a uhd movie and it works.

Re: Sky Cinema and Entertainment UHD to launch

l just saw this online.

https://www.whathifi.com/us/news/vir...-entertainment

Quote:
The Sky Entertainment and Cinema Ultra HD bolt-on launches today and allows Virgin Media users access to over 1300 TV episodes and 250 films in stunning 4K. That includes Hollywood big-hitters such as Birds of Prey and Twist, and popular shows like The Blacklist and Seal Team.
Quote:
Existing Virgin Media subscribers will need to tack on an extra £6 per month to their direct debit to upgrade to Sky Entertainment and Cinema Ultra HD. You must already have the Sky Cinema addition on your package too.
Quote:
As is often the case, it's new customers who get the best deal. Those signing up afresh to Virgin Media's Ultimate Oomph maximum TV package will get the new Ultra HD content for free.

Re: Sky Cinema and Entertainment UHD to launch

Existing customers have to add the Sky Entertainment and Cinema UHD pack on for £6 a month.

It's only currently included in Ultimate Oomph for new customers.
