Sky launching Ultra HD 4K box

Wednesday, Feb 04, 2015

That's according to new reports that claim a 4K set-top box could be here by the spring.

Sky is fast-tracking the launch in an attempt to head off BT and their exclusive deal to show European football, which starts next season.

The Daily Telegraph reports that BT Sport are planning to broadcast in 4K within the next few months.

Sky will launch its 4K box with a range of new premium content which will be broadcast in the crystal clear format.

A Sky spokesman told the Telegraph: “Innovation is at the very heart of Sky’s business.

"We have a proven track record of leadership in the industry as we continually strive to find new ways to enhance the customer experience”.

BT meanwhile are planning trials fir ultra-high definition streaming over the internet by May, hopefully making it a viable choice of viewing by the time the Champions League makes it debut on the service in August.

The online service will need high-speed internet and could provide pictures four times sharper than current high definition broadcasts.

4K resolution is a term used to refer to content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels, and is the common name for ultra-high-definition television (UHDTV).
