I'd think Sky would just launch one movie channel and one sports channel and the rest would be streaming, so maybe Sky Cinema Premiere UHD and Sky Sports Main Event UHD. That has been what I was expecting.
I don't actually mind how they do it

Your suggestion makes sense though

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

I imagine that because of Covid-19, the Sky UHD/4K channels will now launch in September in line with the launch of the new Premier League season.

They out to be able to build a channel with live sport concerts etc then filling in between with docs and films.

Lack of UHD content is stopping me getting a UHD tv.

Do you not have any other 4K devices like game consoles and Amazon Fire Sticks?

I would not wait for 4K content on broadcast TV when you can get far more 4K content by other means, but when you do get one don't get a cheap £400 one as the difference will be night and day.

Thanks for the advice, I don't use any of the sources you suggest - so 4K content needs to come from normal sources.

Disappointingly, football has been available on sky for some time but as ever Virgin are slow to supply

I presume you mean football in UHD. We do, of course have BT Sport Ultimate which provides football in UHD. The Sky stuff should arrive in time for the next season.

The BT Premier League games are in 4K on Virgin Media (plus a bit of other sport).
