Service now available to Sky customers, and on Samsung smart TVs, Xbox One games consoles and Chromecast Ultra streaming devices


BT Sport is extending its 4K HDR service, BT Sport Ultimate, to a wider range of smart TVs, games consoles and streaming devices.

BT Sport Ultimate launched earlier in the year to BT TV and EE pay monthly customers, enabling them to watch in HD with HDR on Android and Apple handsets/tablets.

From today, BT Sport Ultimate will be available for an £5 extra per month to Sky customers who take BT Sport, and customers who subscribe to BT Sport’s app.

From the weekend, BT Sport Ultimate programming in 4K UHD with HDR will also be available via Samsung smart TVs, Xbox One games consoles and Chromecast Ultra streaming devices.

Upcoming events on BT Sport Ultimate that are available in 4K UHD with HDR include UEFA Champions League matches featuring Tottenham Hotspur v Olympiacos (Tuesday 26 November, 8pm) and Liverpool v Napoli (Wednesday 27 November, 8pm).

BT Sport will show up to 70 live events in HDR this season, including the UEFA Champions League and Premier League.

If an event is not being screened in HDR, BT Sport Ultimate subscribers will, from this weekend, be able to watch live action for the first time in 4K UHD on Samsung smart TVs, Xbox One, Apple TV 4K and Chromecast Ultra.

Pete Oliver, managing director, marketing, of BT’s consumer division, said: “We’re providing the absolute best video and sound quality for sport fans, making BT Sport in 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos available in more ways than ever this season.”
