They are due to have some live programmes available this week - but it is an online only service initially.

The next few weeks will be interesting. How long would it take them to create a compatible app for V6 and TiVo?
No idea, I'm assuming if it does come to VM it will be the channels rather than an app but I'm sure all will become clear soon

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

I thought there were 3 BT sport channels and BT ESPN? I now find there is a BTsport 4k channel which has something completely different than what is on the normal BT sport channels? Am i missing something here....

BT sport on 527 has rogers cup tennis. Bt sport 2 has BT sport reload. Bt sport 3 has FIA formula E and BT sport ESPN has the X games.

I never knew there was another BT sport channel hiding on 555

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

It’s recently launched, basically when BT has the capability to broadcast sport in 4k that’s where you’ll find it

It will be a simulcast of the SD and HD channels in the usual places

When there is no live sport I assume they just show some sort of “this is 4k” promotion but I haven’t looked

Great news. Amazon arrived on my Youview retail box today and works even without a BT subscription

The app may have appeared but you will need to log in (having paid your subscription) or sign on for your free trial to view it.

Unless of course, Amazon is giving you the fee trial through YouView, in which case expect to be offered a subscription within 30 days of accessing Prime.

Yeah of course the standard Prime subscription applies.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

The Express are reporting UFC may go PPV in the UK on SKY Box Office. The article suggests SKY could land the marquee events, roughly 12 per year, with Eleven Sports picking up the rest of the content.

Only the diehards will watch it the way it is going as you can be rest assured they will want a pretty penny or two from the customer to watch the content..

I'm sure the fee will be similar to the big boxing Ppv fights - although I suspect with far less viewers.
