4k sport coverage without Virgin/Sky subscription?

Finally got round to getting our new TV, after finally get bored of the 10 year old Sony Bravia which got handed down to me from my parents.

Currently have a Virgin TV subscription with all the packages, and the occasional match broadcast in 4K is excellent.

However, we're looking at getting rid of Virgin as it just costs too much money, and unfortunately if you want sports you have to pay top whack (movies, kids tv, etc etc).

So, is there a way of being able to watch sport in 4K (where broadcast) without having to pay a hefty subscription to Sky or Virgin?

We were thinking of going down the Now TV route before getting the TV, so that when there's something I want to watch then I can just pay for it, but I don't think they have 4K content? The new TV has the Now TV app built in, so we don't have to buy a box, but I'm unsure if 4K sport will be available on there.

No is the answer.

But IPTV will give a chance to get loads of channels many that have FHD usually for tiny fraction of the price. IPTV is superb actually.

Not sure you can even get HD on Now TV as it goes.

It is the one thing that dawned on me when I purchased a 4K TV... it is near impossible to get 4K content online - even if you want to pay for it.

I can't find a single decent online provider of films in 4K

I've got a decent choice of 4k films and TV from Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Ratuken. It's the sport I'm concerned about if we ditch Virgin.

The actual 4k content on Netflix and Amazon is incredibly limited

Yeah there's not loads. But it'll do for me for the time being. Having Amazon Prime and the premium Netflix account is finally paying off.
