Is the 2022 FIFA World Cup offered in 4k? Yes, it is! Select games hosted by FOX will be available in 4k Ultra HD with HLG High Dynamic Range. Audio is provided in Dolby Digital Plus at 48kHz. The FIFA World Cup kicks off with Qatar vs. Ecuador at 9 am ET on FOX and Fox Sports 1. U.S. fans can catch the first men’s team vs. Wales on Monday, Nov. 21 at 10 am ET.
The games will be available on either FOX, Fox Sports 1, or both networks depending on the match time. In Spanish, the matches are on Telemundo Deportes (HD). You’ll be able to watch the games in 4k from DirecTV, Dish, Comcast, Verizon, and Optimum as long as those providers support the format and you have the necessary equipment.
In addition, the games will stream in 4k/HDR on the FOX Sports app for streaming media players, and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, viewable in either 4k, HDR, or both depending on the screen.
It should be noted that while FOX delivers a 4k feed from live games the source is actually upscaled from HD. But, even an upscaled 4k image far exceeds that of an HD. And, the graphics overlays look incredibly sharp.
