Eurosport 4K EETV

Perhaps someone from BT or EE could provide an answer here.

Is there any reason that EETV do not seem to have Eurosport 4K linear channel during the Roland Garos tennis tournament?  Were WBD and BT Sports UK sports rights not  supposed pooled into the Joint Venture between WBD and BT in which case I would have expected to have Eurosport 4K (UK)  to be provided with linear channel coverage. Other UK  television providers do appear to be providing linear TV coverage of Eurosport 4K.

Re: Eurosport 4K EETV

It is only the centre court which is UHD but it is being shown on VirginMeia in the UK. There will be some limited coverage on Sky.

There is also no sign of UHD in Discovery+ even though there is multi-court coverage.

Re: Eurosport 4K EETV

To update on responses received 

No responses on behalf of EETV or  BT about the absence of 4K linear channel  coverage.

A separate approach to WBD Discovery Plus about the steaming availability or to be more accurate non availability in 4K  apologised for the absence of 4K  streamed content but indicated this was due to not all content not being broadcast in 4K. 

So no one to date seems able to explain why the Eurosport 4K  coverage from the main show court   broadcast in 4K on other UK TV providers  isn’t available to those on EE TV packages.

Re: Eurosport 4K EETV

The silence from all concerned is deafening really. The lack of ES 4K on Discovery+ is a weird one, but they're sending it to Sky and Virgin Media... Make it make sense, PLEASE !!!!!

Its very much a case of the tail wagging the dog from them most of the time.
