Football in 4K | LG

21.08.2018

Love football? Experience every stunning free kick, tough tackle and ecstatic celebration in lifelike detail with Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Both broadcasters now show top-flight football from across the globe in 4K Ultra HD, so you can get the best out of your LG 4K TV with football boasting 4 times the detail of Full HD.

What is 4K TV?

With 4 times as much detail as Full HD, 4K TVs cram over 8 million pixels into the picture. More pixels, of course, means more detail.

But to get the true benefit from  your new TV, you need content shot or mastered in 4K. Sky Sports and BT Sport have joined the likes of Amazon Prime and Netflix to provide programming in glorious 4K UHD. 

 How does 4K benefit football?

The combination of sharp, ultra-high definition pictures with the finest football in the world is a dream match-up. Soak up the big stadium atmosphere in rich detail.

 . Clearly read names of players’ shirts

 . See their jubilation as they score a screamer

 . Or their anguish as they miss a sitter  

 . Perfect slow motion on every decision

 . Colourful boots are bright and vivid

From the first kick of the game to the final whistle, lightning-fast action stays super smooth thanks to the faster frame rates delivered in 4K UHD.
