Will Ultra HD box work with HD TV?

Hello

 

I'm looking to get a 4K TV later this year.

 

I currently do not have BT TV but looking to sign up to the service.  

 

If I subscribe to the Entertainment Ultra HD package and receive the UHD YouView box, will this work with my existing HD TV?  

 

I appreciate the UHD sports channel will not work properly (as I dont yet have 4K TV!) but will the other channels still display as normal?  

Kind Regards, Luke

Yes, you can set the output to 1080 or if the tv doesn't have a hdcp2.2 port it will automatically downscale to standard HD.

Hi, so is this 1080P.... So I could watch 1080P football rather than 720P / 1080i as it is now?

 

If so is this worth a go?

Yes.

 

And the UHD sports channel will work fine, albeit downscaled.  You may actually think the downscaled UHD channel looks better than the regular HD channel, because of the higher framerate and higher bandwidth.
