Fox Sports to broadcast whole F1 season in 4K

Formula 1 will be telecast in 4K on Foxtel in 2019

Fox Sports has confirmed that this year’s Formula 1 season will be telecast in ultra high definition on Foxtel 4K.

While the broadcast of the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix in 4K had already been advertised by the pay television network, it has now committed to doing so for every session in 2019.

“We can’t wait to broadcast Formula One races in 4K Ultra HD on Foxtel 4K, starting with the Australian Formula One Grand Prix,” said Peter Campbell, Head of Fox Sports.

“Fans already love our proposition of broadcasting every Formula One practice, qualifying and race live with no ad-breaks during racing, so we think they will enthusiastically embrace this new innovation of 4K Ultra HD which takes the viewing experience to the next level.”

Fox Sports has also confirmed that it will cover the F1 season launch at Federation Square next Wednesday, to be fronted by Jessica Yates and Mark Webber.

Last year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 was the first sporting event to be telecast in 4K on Foxtel.

Foxtel 4K is available to satellite subscribers with an iQ4 set-top box.
