bt sport ultra hd

BT Sport Ultra HD – Europe's first 4K sports channel – will cost £15 a month, BT has announced.

It will launch on Wednesday August 2nd, with live coverage of Chelsea vs Arsenal in the FA Community Shield.

The second-ever game to be shown on the channel will be the opening fixture of 2015/16 Barclays Premier League season, which sees Manchester United take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, August 8th.

Your £15 a month also gets you BT Sport 1 and 2, BT ESPN and BT Sport Europe. It's part of the BT Entertainment Ultra HD package, which includes 47 premium channels, of which 13 are in HD and nine are for kids.

It comes with the Humax DTR-T4000 set-top box which has a 1TB hard drive. This is free, but you'll have to pay £44 for installation.

You'll also get a voucher for £500 off an LG 4K TV.

In order to watch, you'll need a BT Infinity FTTC broadband connection too. These start at £9.75 a month, plus £16.99 a month line rental. So in total, you're looking at around £40 a month plus a one-off activation fee of £35.

You'll also need to be in an area that gets broadband speeds fast enough to receive 4K feeds – that's thought to be around 20-25Mbps.

"The best way to watch BT Sport is with BT TV," said Delia Bushell, managing director of BT TV and BT Sport.

"BT Sport Ultra HD is the next step in high definition TV and provides a truly cinematic viewing experience and is available only on BT TV."
