Confirmed today that Sky will begin retailing BT Sport and Premier Sports in Ireland on 1st August - not sure if that’s any indicator of the start date for BT Sport in the UK also.

BTTV 4K boxes received an update earlier this week, seemingly it enabled the introduction of BBC iPlayer 4K content to the platform. Looking very good too especially with the 50fps 10bit HDMI output selected.

thanks for the heads-up - interestingly the Wimbledon final build-up (presumably going through an HD-SDR -> UHD-HDR conversion) is looking a bit washed out on a UHD-SDR TV, though that may just be the way we've got it set up.

Also, it's a whole minute behind BBC One HD on DSat..

That’s improved from the early parts of the World Cup last year where it was up to 2 minutes behind.


On my TV the UHD HDR is ahead of the standard HD streams by a good 10-15 seconds, enough to switch to the other stream and see the same few seconds again.

BT clearly flexing their rights muscles for UCL qualifiers - tonight they're showing The New Saints v Copenhagen. No sign of the reverse leg yet.

BT Sport 4K launch on 'large screen' services due imminently.

That sounds like the kind of thing that would get a big launch for the new season (but perhaps tested on a smaller UHD fixture first)

They haven't however for the Europa League, most of the qualifiers have been on Premier Sport and they have the all British clash Wolves v Crusaders this week

Bare minimum effort though - no intro or outro, no in vision pres, bargain basement commentary and the scoreboard had the wrong colour for Copenhagen for the first half.

Take a look on the iPlayer at the UEFA U19 Championship SFs really liking the crisp graphics, puts the other UEFA competitions in the shade imo.

Think it's more a reflection of how poor some of the other graphics are rather than how good these are. I'm not seeing what you're seeing TBH. The Nations League set is UEFA's best effort in recent years.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
