Sky Sports will show Test cricket in Ultra HD for the first time this summer when England take on South Africa in their Test series across July and August.
The move will enable Sky Q customers in the UK and Ireland to watch to every ball of England’s Test series against South Africa in stunning Ultra HD with picture quality four times that of HD TV.
The multi camera coverage, available with Sky Q, will be supported by stunning Ultra HD graphics, Hawkeye and enhanced statistical offerings.
Bryan Henderson, Sky Sports Head of Cricket, commented:
“With Ultra HD, customers can enjoy the four Test matches, with four times better picture quality and four times greater clarity. It is a first for Sky Sports and we can’t wait to bring you closer to the action, excitement and drama that the South Africa Test series will deliver this summer.”
Alongside Sky’s cricket coverage in Ultra HD, Sky Q customers also have access to every F1 grand prix and 124 Premier League matches in Ultra HD throughout this season and next.
