Last night's football was not available in 4K

Go to solution

Im not 100% certain that last night's fottbal was scheduled to be in 4K.  Anyone know ?

However, I do know tonight's Newcastle match was advertised as being in 4K.

Time will tell if it happens.

As far as I can remember I watched it on Channel 433. Couldn't tell if it was actually 4K or not ( the difference on a 40" screen at 8ft viewing distance is very difficult to detect).

What did the logo top right  say ?

Did the 4K UHD option appear bottom right ?

Hi  @pompey1898  why don't you believe it was in 4K , the EPG had it scheduled live on the  BT Youview 4K channel  and as it happens the 4K channel is currently playing extended highlights of the same match in 4K.

The FACR4 tie was in 4K and was repeated in 4K before tonight's FAPL NEW-MCI match.

Hi @KernowChris,

I paid special attention last night and the Newcastle/Man City match was definitely not in UHD on my new SkyQ/4K TV set up, despite paying BT a sizeable amount each month for it.

Hi @KernowChris, @zulu17, @wisty,

I was clearly misled by someone, maybe at Sky or BT, that BT Sport UHD would be available to me when I upgraded to Sky Q.  I have been watching BT Sport HD for several years on Sky+HD.

Very disappointing !

Can you see channel 433. That's the only one that carries UHD. It does need "switching on" separatly at BT's end. I needed someone at BT to set something ( don't know what) up after I got  BT sport. First try there was no channel 433.

After help from someone over the phone it appeared.

Regards

BT Sport in 4K is only available on the top tier BTTV service and some Virgin Media packs. It is NOT available elsewhere at present.
