Virgin Media customers will be able to watch coverage of this year’s Wimbledon in 4K UHD/HDR, as long as they’re watching via the BBC iPlayer app on their set top box.
Tennis fans who watch the tournament via the BBC iPlayer app built into the Virgin TV V6 STB will be able to access both UHD and HDR.
All this year’s Wimbledon centre court matches will be in 4K HDR, while all broadcast matches will also be available to watch in HD both on the app and on the BBC’s linear channels.
David Bouchier, chief digital entertainment officer at Virgin Media, said: “It’s been a great summer for tennis fans on our TV platform with Roland Garros in 4K HDR last month and now Wimbledon. Our customers will once more feel like they’re courtside with every smash and volley in the best picture quality possible, all from the comfort of their home.”
