FuboTV in July became the first live streaming service to offer live programming in 4K when it aired Fox’s broadcasts of the 2018 World Cup in the new picture format.

For those unfamiliar with fuboTV, it’s a live streaming service that offers dozens of cable channels for packages starting at $44.99 a month. (Note: the company is now offering the $44.99 plan for $39.99 for the first month after a seven-day free trial. The $39.99 offer is a time-limited promotional price.)

Both DIRECTV and Dish have previously aired live sporting events in 4K, but they have yet to make any 4K announcements regarding this month’s MLB playoffs.
