FuboTV has launched 4K HDR10 support in Beta, becoming the first sports-streaming platform to offer content in ultra-high definition and high dynamic range.
Starting today, main broadcasts of World Cup 2018 matches on FOX and FS1 are available in 4K HDR10 with fuboTV on all Chromecast and Fire TV devices that support the format. fuboTV will also launch 4K HDR10 on Roku and Apple TV in the coming weeks.
To view ultra-high definition and high dynamic range content, subscribers must have a 4K HDR-enabled television, HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 compatible cable and run the fuboTV app on a streaming device that supports the formats. Bandwidth speeds of 30Mbps-40Mbps or higher are recommended. 4K HDR-capable TVs may also need calibration to present the content correctly.
For subscribers without 4K HDR hardware, all Russia 2018 matches are available in 60FPS.
