Will FOX broadcast the World Cup in 4K? The good news is that here in the US, FOX Sports has the exclusive English-language broadcast rights for the 2022 World Cup. Therefore, all 64 games of the competition air either on local FOX stations or FS1, the company’s main sports channel. Even better news is that every game of the tournament is available in 4K.

Will FOX broadcast the World Cup in 4K?

Here are the specific details about FOX broadcasting the World Cup in 4K:

• All matches air in native 4K UHD HDR
• Studio programming is produced in 1080p HDR, and airs in 4K UHD HDR

The reason why studio programming is native 1080p is due to FOX Sports using augmented reality in their Doha studio. FOX Sports cannot do that in UHD for this World Cup.

UHD is ultra high definition, while HDR is high dynamic range.

For any soccer fans, watching the sport in 4K makes such a huge difference in the viewing experience. The 2018 FIFA World Cup was in 4K HDR, while the 2018 FIFA Women’s World Cup aired in 4K SDR.
