What I've said is the UHD is most likely to be delivered via the i-Player, and in fact I have seen the first pictures already in UHD on the i-Player. I also said that given the World Cup UHD feed will most likely be delivered by that method, the Beeb will probably make that available to the British audience, but not on a UHD broadcast channel.

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

MTV have made a Live UHD feed available on Sky Q of the MTV EMA 2017 tonight not sure if it's also being carried on Virgin.

Is it being streamed or carried as a broadcast channel?

I don't think we'regetting UHD on Virgin (except through Netflix and YouTube) until 2018, from what I can gather.

Will still be a stream though.

DVB UHD-1 was only completed as a standard earlier this year:

And I've not seen anything to say that any broadcaster has launched support for it yet.

If as I think you are referring to an internet stream then no it certainly wasn't , Sky Sports broadcasts Premier League matches nearly every week using satellite they also do the same for the F1.

This is the beauty of UHD on Sky unlike BT's product it doesn't impact your broadband speed.

Is that what's holding up the launch of UHD on Virgin Media, Ben? Or is it just the lack of material UHD material?

It's a bit frustrating for those of us with UHD TVs!

Re: UHD on Virgin Media

UHD broadcasts are already being done however both BT and Sky currently don't include HDR.

This is an interesting read

It's going to be interesting, as one "standard" is introduced another one goes into development, offering an endless upgrade path for broadcasters and consumers alike.

A nice summary of the development path can be found here: https://www.dvb.org/resources/public...ing_in_uhd.pdf

Aha! but which flavour of UHD TV? Many have been around for quite a while now.

No, I wasn't, Den, I was talking about UHD content.

I am not fixated on linear channels, as you well know by now.
