What Is TNT Sports Ultra HD?

TNT Sports Ultra HD

TNT Sports Ultra HD (the new name for BT Sport Ultra HD) is one of the first 4K/Ultra HD TV channels in the UK. Providing picture detail up to four times that of full HD, the channel broadcasts one game per week in Ultra HD. These live stream matches are hand-picked by TNT Sports and feature live action from either the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, or the Gallagher Premiership rugby. The TNT Sports Ultra HD channel is available with a Discovery+ TNT Sports subscription on BT TV, Sky TV and Virgin Media TV.

What Is Ultra HD / 4K?

Ultra HD or 4K as it is also known, is the latest TV technology standard that increases the resolution of TV pictures to a huge 3840x2160 pixels.

This is four times the detail of HD programmes on an HD TV which typically use 1920x1080 pixels and up to eight times that of standard definition (SD) TV.

What Are The Benefits Of Ultra HD /4K TV?

You can enjoy breath-taking levels of picture detail with Ultra HD and sharper images with live content typically being delivered at 50 frames per second, which is perfect for fast moving sports like football and motor racing as there is less motion blur when the camera pans around.

There is also richer and deeper colour with 10 bit sampling of brightness and colour compared to the current 8 bit for HD.

Such a leap in TV picture quality means you will be able to see amazing detail, including for example, fine lines on leaves in nature programmes.
