The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup is taking place in France from June 7 through July 7 with live broadcasts delivered by Fox, Telemundo, and Telemundo Deportes. As well as traditional SD/HD coverage on Fox, FS1, Telemundo (Spanish), and NBC Universo (Spanish) several TV providers and streaming services are offering the matches in 4k. Here’s a quick guide.
Comcast is offering live 4k broadcasts for the first time with coverage of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. X1 customers need the Xi6 IP video client or XG1v4 STB/DVR. Live matches won’t show up on the Guide though. Instead, customers should go to the Sports Guide in X1 or use voice commands via the X1 Menu and remote.
DirecTV is showing the Women’s World Cup in 4k on Channels 105 and 106 (although Channel 106 is also covering the U.S. Open in 4k for part of the time). Customers need a Genie HD DVR (Model HR54) or better. Here’s how to get 4k on DirecTV.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup on Dish can be watched on the service provider’s dedicated Channel 540. Customers need a Hopper 3 or the 4K Joey to watch 4k programming.
Altice USA is providing the FIFA Women’s World Cup on their dedicated Channel 200 through their Optimum service.
As well as through traditional set-top boxes from a service provider, the FIFA Women’s World Cup can be streamed in 4k using the Fox Sports and Fox Now apps. And, fuboTV is providing 4k streams of the World Cup through supporting devices.
