Virgin TV 4K Ultra HD

Experience the ultimate in picture quality on even the biggest screens, with incredible 4K clarity.

What is 4K Ultra HD?

As the way we watch TV has evolved, so too has the need for clearer, sharper images. With 4K Ultra HD, you’re getting to see a TV screen with a resolution that’s four times that of a Full HD (1080p) TV. That means a whopping 8 million pixels fit in the same space as the 2 million pixels that fit on a full HD TV screen. This is achieved by making each pixel four times smaller, as more pixels mean more detail.

Watching in 4K Ultra HD TV means even the biggest screens can showcase every tiny detail with crystal-clear clarity and accurate colour.

What are the benefits of 4K TV?

  • 4K Ultra HD is towards the top end of the spectrum when it comes to picture clarity. As TVs have grown, so has the need for sharper images.

  • Imagine taking a picture from an old 14-inch TV and expanding it to fit one of today’s supersized screens. You’d be hard-pressed to watch for long, thanks to the fuzzy outlines and lack of detail.

  • With 4K Ultra HD, the biggest screens now display every detail with incredible clarity.

How does Ultra High Definition (UHD) compare to Full High Definition (HD)?

Ultra-high definition (UHD) is a leap in advancement from Full HD. Ultra HD has a TV resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels which is double the number of vertical pixels of Full HD, and four times the number of pixels in total (8,294,400 pixels) – hence why Ultra HD is referred to as 4K.
