Ultra HD - is it worth it?

I have to say that having signed up for the Ultra HD service last year I am really disappointed with the limited content BT offer. If we are lucky we get one Ultra football game per week - two if it is Champions League week - and a handful of demo clips. Amazon and Netflix now offer a decent number of top series in 4K, but BT seem content to offer a limited schedule of sport. Probably won't bother renewing in August.

Not worth it imo
It got to the point now where I won't even watch the game in UHD if it's on.
I don't use Netflix or Amazon so it is really limted coverage for me anyway.
I will be cancelling the package asap, the TV service is good and I really took the UHD package as a trial as it was same price for first year.

Yes UHD content is increasing all the time, its not just football they have also shown MotoGP, Badminton and Basketball in UHD too. More games will be shown in UHD and more sport too.

You don't pay any extra for it & you get bigger hard drive in the box so how can it not be worth it.

Is it not going up to £20 per month after this first year?

I assume if you call customer options after the initial 12 months a decent deal should be available.

 

The Ultra package also includes free BT Sport HD. I think the other packages charge for this.

the entertainment max package includes BT sport too
You can check tour options on my BT it is possible that going on contract for other 12 months on a different package gets cheaper than staying off contract with you current but a call in would be worth

Re: Ultra HD - is it worth it?

No in my view as the UHD box has a fail to come out of standby problem since release .

It can cause you to lose all recordings .
