4K Ultra HD content on its way

BT Sport 4K Ultra HD

Here at Cyberhomes we’ve been fortunate to have experience with 4K resolution TVs for quite a while now. These next-generation televisions have 4x the picture detail of current HD TV. We’ve even installed them on quite a few of our recent projects.

Until now though, other than a few demo clips, there’s been very little 4K content available to really show off what these TVs are capable of. But that’s all about to change.

There’s been rumours of a new Sky box that will be 4K capable arriving before the end of the year; but BT have beaten them to it by formally announcing their new BT Sport Ultra HD channel. Content is king; and it this, along with the NetFilx 4K streaming service that’s already available if you have a fast enough internet connection, should start to see 4K television become more mainstream. BT will be offering a new YouView+ set top box (STB) manufactured by Humax which will be required to receive the new channel. You’ll also, at least initially, need to have a BT Infinity internet connection, so check to see if it’s available in your area yet as the new channel is due to launch on August 2nd with the¬†Charity Shield contest between Arsenal and Chelsea.
