You can enjoy the most famous soccer league in the world by watching it in 4K. The good news is that there are more Premier League games available in 4K for the 2022/23 season.
NBCUniversal shared some exciting news with media members during a conference call this week.
Premier League games shown in 4K during the 2022/23 seasons are UHD HDR. That is ultra high definition, high dynamic range. Subsequently, that’s an upgrade from previous seasons.
“There will also be increased number of broadcasts from it compared to the past,” said Pierre Moossa — Coordinating Producer for NBC Sports Group’s Premier League coverage. “We will still be taking the fully produced world-feed from the Premier League and will be distributing that to many different aspects. It is being considered for other platforms.
“It will (feature) Premier League graphics with their commentators.”
Where can I find Premier League 4K broadcasts
Although it is great news to be able to watch these matches in 4K resolution, there are currently only three channels that have access: fuboTV. DirecTV. YouTubeTV. FuboTV is a great option for soccer fans who also enjoy entertainment and news programs. It is hard to argue its value with plans starting at $70 per monthly and offering more than 100 channels, including the 4K option. This is especially true when you consider the number of games that are available every day and night on the platform.
FuboTV’s streaming service has a separate NBC 4K channel. Note that you’ll need a 4K television or monitor to watch the game in the highest definition possible.
The EPL Commentators Schedule contains information about which Premier League games are in 4K each week. It’s published every Friday at Noon ET.
This weekend, both televised matches are also available in 4K. That’s Crystal Palace versus Arsenal, and Everton against Chelsea.
As you can see, 4K UHD HDR requires special cameras in order to broadcast in 4K. This news is not a definitive step in the right direction, but it does indicate that not every game will be 4K.
