BT is already on satellite and yes it has to just send feed 4K. Solution that you just proposed is absolutely crazy. I won’t have two boxes at home and won’t resign from 4K Sky to have 4K from BT..
BT have made a commercial decision not to put BT Sport Ultimate on Sky in the same way Sky have made a decision not to put their 4K channels or content on NowTV
I don’t think it’s commercial in this way..I’d say they simply saving money since bitrate on satellite they have now is 4 times less than they’d need for 4K feed.
Anyway thanks for talking folks.
I'm with @NigelB72 on this one.
I suspect this is certainly a commercial decision. If BT gave Sky everything, then they would not have a selling point for BT TV. It's the same reason why Sky will not give Sky Sports 4K to BT. Because if we reverse the argument, other than commercial reasons, why does Sky not provide Sky Sports 4K to BT TV? It works both ways.
Not quite because as a sky customer I can have 4K from BT easily while being Bt customer you can’t have 4K from Sky without getting 12 months contract. Point is sky getting 4K feed from satellite and BT sports HD same way. So to get 4K BT Sports through Sky they’d have to send feed through satellite..
As consumers, all we want is convenience.
Most people are happy with the 40s delay, but right now, it’s a shame that for die-hard sports fans who also want the best picture quality - we have to subscribe to two different services requiring two boxes just to get 4K HDR football with minimum delay.
Given BT and Sky get money from each other for this and revenue share - I hope they see sense and let each other have their 4K feeds.
What about access BT in 4K through the app. Is there a limit of people that can access it like it’s currently on iPlayer?
