fuboTV launches 4K HDR streaming on Apple TV
UPDATE: Since the original release of this story, fuboTV has launched 4K HDR streaming on Apple TV as of July 5th. This story has been updated to reflect this change.
Many streaming media services are scrambling to offer 4K HDR streaming of live TV, but fuboTV is now the first to launch it…provided you have the right hardware and watch the right channels. The company has announced that broadcasts of World Cup 2018 matches on FOX and FS1 are available in 4K HDR10 and the broadcasts are now available on Apple TV.
UHD and HDR content will require a 4K HDR-enabled television and an HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 compatible cable. Those who don’t meet the requirements can, of course, still stream the matches in HD 60FPS.
The fact that fuboTV would use the World Cup to debut its 4K streaming capabilities is well in line with company’s focus on sports programming. Channels such as beIN Sports, Big Ten Network, Olympic Channel and Eleven Sports are amongst the 90 channels offered in their $44.99/month package. From there, add-on packages with channels as diverse as NFL Red Zone, ChelseaTV, Fight Network and GOLTV are available at prices ranging from $4.99 to $14.99 a month.
More information on the various packages available can be found at fubo.tv.
