The World Series, Sadly, Won’t be Broadcast in 4k

2018 world series logo youtube tvYou won’t be able to look for Craig Kimbrel’s tipping in 4k resolution during tonight’s World Series opener, sadly. That’s because FOX won’t be producing any of the games in 4k.

FOX did produce games 1-5 of the National League Conference Series between the Brewers and Dodgers in 4k/HDR, and both DirecTV and FuboTV provided those broadcasts to subscribers.

But it seems the network has better places to spend their production money, like, maybe NFL games or TV content. Still though, this matchup between the Dodgers and Red Sox is looking to be a classic. Why not capture it for future generations in 4k and HDR?

Equally disappointing was AT&T/Warner didn’t offer any of the ALCS playoff games in 4k. But the HD broadcasts, at least on DirecTV, were impressive and almost as good as 4k. Like they say, sit back a few feet and you won’t know the difference (although HDR is a different story).

If you’re itching for some 4k, remember DirecTV has plenty of On Demand movies, some free content, and upcoming events in 4k such as the Rolling Stones Ole, Ole, Ole concert on Oct. 27.

And, both DirecTV and FuboTV and will providing the English Premier League match between Tottenham and Manchester City on Oct. 29 in 4k/HDR.
