FuboTV, the only multi-channel, live streaming service to offer live 4K events, this week will stream the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in the new picture format.
In addition, DIRECTV’s satellite TV service will air the annual pupfest in 4K on its live 4K channel, which is 106. (Update: Optimum, the cable TV service in the tri-state New York area, will also offer the event in 4K.)
The Westminster Dog Show, which will be produced by Fox, will air on February 11-12 at 7 p.m. ET on each night. (FS1 will simulcast the broadcast in high-def.) The event, which began in 1877, pits the nation’s best pure breeds in competition in categories such as agility, poise and obedience.
The program, which is held at Madison Square Garden in New York, has become an annual must-view for dog owners and lovers. This will be the first time it will be offered in 4K.
FuboTV in July 2018 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.)
