      Europa League final – live on BT Sport. Highlights program on ITV later that evening.

      UEFA Champions League Final live on BT Sport. I cannot see any scheduled highlight programme on ITV or other.

      4K is a major selling point ITV can’t match at this point in time, the BBC have done the odd 4K test on iPlayer – not sure what the ETA is for mainstream rollout.

    Ill be watching the 4k stream on YouTube with my BT Infinity FTTC… Oh no scratch that it only runs at 26Mb nowhere near enough for the full YouTube 4k experience 🙁

      How much Mb do you need for the full YouTube 4K stream?

      “How much Mb do you need for the full YouTube 4K stream?”

      It depends on the content, the bottom end and early 4k youtube content streams at anything from 14-30Mbps.

      The more typical newer (past 3-6 months possibly older) content is around 35-50Mbps(ish).

      The top end (IE NOT transcoded to low profile youturd mp4) is around 60-90Mbps.

      Either way for a football match it will be interesting, especially for those on a capped product as (unless quick maths in my head fails me) even at around the poorest 14Mbps 1 hour of content will work out to a data consumption of around 7Gig. so i guess one 90 min footy match will at minimum be 10 gig (ish)…

      Ouch if you are on a product like the NON-Unlimited 52Mb Infinity with a 30GB monthly cap. Cap could be gone (depending on the bitrate its streaming at) just watching both matches LOL

      I would not know obviously, as i have never had enough to watch one consistently.

    What a great chance to see the quality of 4K. Bring it on.

    If only BT were as committed to providing broadband that is actually fast enough to allow 4K streaming. I have no interest in football at all, but I guess I’ll have even less usable ADSL broadband while everyone else is watching in 4K.

    Watched the Europa League Final, 4k on YouTube, through my 76mbps FTTC connection, no issues whatsoever. Really pleased, looking forward to the Liverpool match now!
