TELLY super-fans can now enjoy the UK's first-ever 4K entertainment channel thanks to Virgin Media. Customers will be able to catch 4K Ultra HD TV shows, documentaries and music concerts starting from Monday, September 17. According to Virgin Media, the channel is available exclusively to Virgin TV Full House and VIP customers with a V6 set-top box. If you tick either of those boxes, you'll be able to watch the new Ultra HD channel at no extra cost. The bad news is that Virgin Media's new channel isn't a 24/7 operation.

The second is known as a "hub and spoke" design, which uses a router and one or more wireless extenders. These days, both categories of gear are marketed and sold as a "mesh kit," so we included both options in this guide.A mesh network is not for everyone.

Normally when I publish a new article, the focus is on explaining the results of some new feature/mechanic/design. Today’s post is a little different because it’s about an important feature that has not yet been implemented, nor have I come to a decision on how best to handle it.
