Presumably the V6

1) will be able to record this channel?

2) be able to downscale the UHD channel onto a non-UHD tv

1) From the reports - it does seem to be a proper channel so I guess you can record

2) The coverage is being simulcast on SD and HD channels

Agreed.

If you are thinking of recording UHD, you'd better make sure you have plenty of space available because you won't have much left when it's finished!

That was the point of doing it - to see exactly how much space it takes.

I also want to see if the down scaled picture is better than HD picture.

Re: Coming Soon to Virgin TV (2018)

This article says the UHD version will also be on channel 100.
I'm guessing it might be red button as well though, else what would Tivo/V Box customers see?

Good article, thanks for sharing.

"David Bouchier, chief digital entertainment officer at Virgin Media, said: ďThe UEFA Champions League final is the biggest night of the year in international club football and we know our customers will relish the opportunity to get as close as possible to the action by watching in Ultra HD. Showing this game in Ultra HD is another example of our fantastic sports offering and look out for more exciting announcements to come in the near future.Ē

Exciting announcements in the near future?
