  • Sky has come good on its promises by announcing that customers with the Sky Q Silver box and service will get their Ultra HD content beginning 13th August 2016.
    The line-up will include Premier League football, naturally, as well as exclusive movies, natural history documentaries and dramas. Formula 1 racing will also get the UHD treatment, with every event being shown at a higher resolution in 2017.

    A total of 124 live Premier League games will be broadcast by Sky this season, a number BT simply can’t match, plus there will be over 70 movies available, including the Ultra HD premiere of Spectre. Other titles slated include The Revenant, and box office hit The Martian. There will be no HDR content available on launch, but that may appear later.

    There will also be 30 hours of natural history and documentaries, including David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies, as well as five new dramas, including The Young Pope starring Jude Law and Series 4 of The Blacklist.

    Luke Bradley-Jones, Director of TV & Content Products, commented: “With Sky Q, we created the world’s best TV experience. Now with the introduction of an unrivalled line-up of Ultra HD TV, the service is going to get even better, truly enhancing customers’ viewing experience. So whether you’re a football fan, movie buff, natural history enthusiast or drama junkie, customers looking for the next-generation of TV viewing will love it.”

    You can watch the content live, On Demand and through Sky Store as Ultra HD is available to customers with a Sky Q Silver box and subscription at no extra cost.
