Re: UHD on Virgin Media

Already posted this in the Coming Soon thread, but it's just as appropriate here in the 4K thread.
Quote:
Overnight Eurosport Hidden has appeared on Tsid 9 /C032 on DigitialBitRate, so it looks like Eurosport are doing 4K stream again this year. It's the qualification rounds this week so it will surely launch once those are over.

I just looked at the screen grab and it's a slate confirming Eurosport 4K coverage of the tournament.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

The slate screen for the hidden BT 4K channel is now showing in the screengrab on DigitalBitRate. It confirms that
Quote:
Both all-English finals, broadcast on BT Sport, will be available to watch in 4K UHD to all Virgin Media customers with a V6 and compatible 4K compatible TV, here on Channel 532.
532 isn't showing on the EPG yet. Non-4K customers will just have to may do with HD on Channel 100.

The V6 will downscale 4k channels to HD if needed.

I probably should have written "non-V6 customers".

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

We will have to wait at least 2 years for ITV UHD, it seems. Rather unsatisfactory considering ITV is the second UK television station.

https://advanced-television.com/2019...uple-of-years/


UK commercial broadcaster ITV has said that UHD is high on their agenda. Tom Griffiths, ITV’s Director of Broadcast & Distribution Technology, explained to delegates at the SES UHD Conference in London that setting aside ‘regionality’ which was another quite separate challenge, was very expensive and might require a different approach to that currently in use. But for UHD it was “definitely in the planning stage” and would probably be available “in the next couple of years”.
