BBC Will Stream The World Cup In 4K HDR - Here's Why That's Important.

This is a big step for how we watch TV.

The BBC has announced that for the first time ever, it will be streaming the World Cup in 4K HDR via BBC iPlayer.

Those wanting to catch the matches in this extreme resolution will need to be quick though as each match will only be offered to the first 10,000 who click on the link and have a compatible TV.

While both Sky and BT offer some live 4K content via their TV packages this will be one of the first times that live TV in 4K has been streamed purely over the internet.

4K or Ultra-HD is a huge leap beyond High Definition (HD) as it offers four times the number of pixels. As a result content becomes incredibly sharp allowing you to make out even the tiniest details like the markings on a footballer’s boot or even the individual hands on a referee’s watch.
