The new Sky Sports Ultra HD channels, which include Sky Sports Main Event Ultra HD and Sky Sports Ultra HD 1, give customers access to a range of live sport including the English Premier League, cricket and darts.This latest addition to Virgin Media and Sky’s partnership means Virgin TV customers can enjoy a full suite of Ultra HD content from Sky, with Sky Cinema and Entertainment Ultra HD VOD already available.

With Sky Sports Ultra HD now available on our platform, fans of the Premier League, Formula 1 and a host of other top sports will be able to get even closer to the action.”
