NFL Football Will Be In 4K In 2019

Q. Football season is coming and I want to know if I can watch NFL games in 4K? They have baseball, basketball and even soccer in 4K, but what about the NFL? Come on, we need football in 4K. — Maurice, Baltimore. 

Maurice, I have some good news for you.

For starters, DIRECTV, Dish, Optimum and fuboTV last year offered several college football games in 4K, and they are expected to do so this year. But the big news is that fuboTV, the live streaming service, and Optimum, the cable service in the tri-state New York area, have announced at their web sites that they will offer 10 regular season NFL games in 4K during the 2019 season.

This will be the first time that the NFL will be available in 4K on any service, including satellite and cable. (Note: fuboTV is the only live streaming service that offers live sports in 4K.). The first game in 4K will be the Philadelphia Eagles-Green Bay Packers matchup from Green Bay on September 26 at 8 p.m. ET.

All 4K NFL games will be produced by Fox as part of its Thursday Night Football coverage. So you might want to examine this list of Fox stations that are carried by fuboTV before you sign up. (fuboTV does not carry Fox in every market. And unlike Optimum, which is a regional cable service, fuboTV is available nationally so it could be your best bet to watch the games in 4K.)

By the way, DIRECTV and Dish have yet to announce whether they will carry these games in 4K, but it’s quite likely. We will monitor this situation and report back here if there are new developments.

The games that will be in 4K on fuboTV and Optimum are:

September 26
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Green Bay Packers 8 p.m. ET
