The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sports events of the year, and this year, it’s being broadcast in 4K. This is an exciting development since it’s one of the first high-profile sporting events to take advantage of the type of picture that many new TVs are capable of. In this blog post, we’ll go over the easiest way to watch the big game in 4K.
Firstly, you’ll need a 4K TV. If you’ve bought a TV in the last couple of years, there’s a good chance it is 4K. Once you’ve determined your TV’s 4K capability, you can move on to the next step.
For all you cord-cutters, you’ll need a service that’s going to carry the game in 4K. The easiest one to use is the Fox Sports app. If you don’t know how to download apps on your TV, there are links in the description below to help you out. However, if you can’t get the app on your TV directly, you’ll need a streaming device. The Roku Premiere, Premiere Plus, Streaming Stick Plus, and Ultra, or the Apple TV 4K are some of the devices that will offer that app. However, the Apple TV 4K is only going to show it in standard dynamic range, not HDR like the Roku’s.
Another thing to remember if you’re streaming the game is that you’re going to need a higher speed internet connection. 25 megabits per second or faster is recommended to make sure you maintain a good connection and don’t really have any hiccup in your viewing experience.
The other way to watch is for people who have a cable service. AT&T’s DirecTV, Comcast Xfinity, and Verizon Fios are some providers around Chicago that’ll be carrying the 4K broadcast. As long as your subscription to your provider’s 4K capable channels, you can tune in to the 4K channel that’s carrying the game.
So those are a few easy ways for you to watch the big game with the best possible picture on Sunday. Now you just need to figure out the snacks, and you’ll be all set.
