      I recently saw a demo of this.
      Not that impressed to be honest.
      You need to be so close to the TV to see the difference in quality that for me its strange/annoying.

      You need to view it on a larger screen. Minimum 50" in my opinion. I've not seen BT's offering but I have Netflix 4K and that can be very impressive.

      BT are offering 4K via the internet thro' their new Humax based YouView box'

      "It includes BTís new 1TB Ultra HD YouView+ set top box, giving 600 SD or 250 HD hours of storage and 47 premium channels including entertainment, documentary and lifestyle channels, with 13 in HD and the BT Sport Pack with all of the UEFA Champions League and Europeís first Ultra HD channel, all for £15 a month. It also comes with a voucher for up to £500 off an LG 4K UHD TV."

      No mention of UHD recording capacity?
      Does it record UHD?

      "Save up to £500: 15% discount available to new BT TV Entertainment Ultra HD customers. Discount applies to Ultra HD TVs on the BT Shop discount offer page."
      So you'd need to buy something like this to get £500 off.

      I find BT's proposition a bit confusing. They pitch a very cheap tv package with very expensive tv offer.
      They need to go down the line of free box with the tv like Sky did very successfully for a few years but then Sky didn't launch with that either.
      Please note the views and recommendations in my posts are my own and in no way reflect the views of Sky

      4K TV's aren't very expensive nowadays so £500 off makes them 'cheap'. However I agree the offer in the BT press release isn't that clear. I suspect that this is just a marker to signify BT are in the market first.

      It's interesting to note that BT will distribute 4K content by fibre and use an updated YouView box. At the same time Sky Deutschland has announced it will distribute 4K via Astra 19.2. This helps to explain why the UK terrestrial broadcasters (BBC/ITV/C4) declined to contribute to the further development of the YouView platform as proposed by BT and TalkTalk. I'm going to assume Sky will use satellite for 4K when they have any content to distribute - BT's purchase of the CL rights looks far sighted as UEFA will supply the 4K pictures and BT won't have to invest in production facilities. Not sure about PL.

      The article i read the other day regarding sky deutschland's 4k from astra 19.2 contained a fairly strong suggestion that satellite offers the best 4k quality.

      Or should that be potentially...
