In addition to the 4K channel, DIRECTV will provide a ‘Mix channel’ for the tournament which displays four screens of action on one channel.

DIRECTV recently changed the minimum package required to get its live 4K channel to Select so more subscribers could access it as well as the satcaster’s two other 4K channels, which are devoted to recurring programming and Video on Demand.
