What is 4K Ultra HD?
The name 4K comes from the number of pixels used on the width of a screen – roughly four thousand. That’s nearly four times as many as the high definition (HD) telly you already love.
With 4K Ultra HD, you’ll see every tiny detail in diamond-sharp definition, making images more life-like than ever before.
So you’ll be whisked from the sofa right into the heart of the action, from inspecting evidence on your favourite crime shows to dicing with death in heart-stopping horror movies. We recommend having a cushion to hand – perfect for hiding behind.
What can you watch on Virgin TV Ultra HD?
