I don't know if you can still do it, but back when we had BT TV in 2015 I found out the multicast addresses for the IP streams. You could then load them into VLC where you can see the bitrate, and the nature of the encryption used meant (or maybe still means) that although the picture is garbled, you could see metadata including the resolution.

In 2015 the multicast addresses of the streams were between .1 and .100 in rtp://234.81.130.XX:5802

Most BT IP HD channels used a ~7.5Mbps MPEG4 1440x1080i profile, with SD being ~2.5Mbps MPEG4 544x576i (except BT Sports which was 720x576i).

My measurements of BT Sport 1 HD back then were that it was ~9Mbps, the same as as others here have noticed recently, but the resolution was still 1440x1080i.

I vaguely recall Sky Sports 1 HD (the only Sky Sports one on there back then I think) as being ~12Mbps 1920x1080i.
