The plan for UHD channels?

Hey

So, what will the plan be for UHD channels?

Will we see 3 versions of the same channel? SD, HD then UHD? Or will UHD only be via a red button app like Eurosport?

If it is via a red button, it needs to be a pretty quick load up of the channel.

Eurosport 4K does load up quick via red button.

I wouldn't expect many UHD channels anytime soon , UHD will predominantly be via On Demand and live content available behind red buttons accessed off the HD channel for the foreseeable future in my opinion.
