Now TV 720p in comparison to UHD Sky Cinema/Sports option?

I'm certain UHD Netflix doesn't really compare to Sky UHD, especially if they would start doing UHD movies over the satellite instead of on-demand only.

Cinephile reviews (online) seem to indicate that Sky UHD is better than Netflix 4k/UHD streams (at typically much lower bit rates), although not up to the quality of 4k Blu-ray.

No, I certainly wouldn't say Now TV was UHD quality! I was referring to those who say that Now TV was SD quality, which of course it isn't.

If SKY becomes too expensive I'd seriously consider switching. Just had a swizz through my SKY planner. All recordings are from either Freeview or channels covered by TV Player.
I tweeted tvplayer a few days back asking if they are going to be on games consoles they confirmed they're working on a ps4 app.
