Satcaster DIRECTV, cable operator Optimum and the live streamer, FuboTV, say they will air every game in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in 4K.
The soccer tournament, which will take place in France between June 7 and July 7, will feature 52 games with 24 nations participating. The first game is scheduled for June 7 between France and the Korea Republic at 3 p.m. ET.
The United States, the defending champions in the event, will first play on June 11 against Thailand at 3 p.m. ET.
The tournament will be simulcast in high-def on Fox Sports, FS1 and FS2.
Note: It’s unclear if the games will be available in 4K HDR. The TV Answer Man has inquired and will report back here if we get an answer. Also, Dish, which has previously presented live sporting events in 4K, might join this group as well. We have asked Dish for a comment.
Update: The games will be in 4K, but not 4K HDR.
Update #2: Dish says it will air “most” of the games in 4K, but will not disclose a schedule until next week.
