Test transmissions have started on satellite as Sky prepare to launch their new Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV service.
The Sky UHD service is expected to launch in a few months time.
Earlier this week, Sky’s Director of Strategy, Nick Herm, said that UHD would arrive on the platform by summer.
Sky’s UHD service will be available to subscribers that have taken up newly launched SkyQ service.
However, no details of the scope and pricing of Sky UHD have been announced.
