Can I get 4K sports?

Hello,

 

I’ve just purchased a Samsung QLED Q90T which is 4K. 

On the tv there is the Now TV app which I plan to use to watch Sky Sports football. As the TV is 4K, can I watch 4K sports through this Now TV app, on this TV? 


if not, what are my options for 4K sport?

many thanks.

Hi @Sports 

 

The maximum resolution with NowTV is 1080p with a Boost Pass.

With regards to 4K sports, perhaps BT Sports using the non contract pass when using the BT Sports App.

No.  Best you can get is HD with boost on 6 channels – Sky Sports Main Event, Premier League, F1, Football, Cricket and Golf – at 50 frames per second (except on LG TV)

Thank you for your quick response. I feel quite disappointed. What about if I purchased a 4K Now TV box / stick? 

It seems silly that you can’t watch 4K contents on a 4K TV via an app on the tv

Doesn’t matter what you buy. HD with 50 FPS is best you can get with Now TV.

To get 4K Sky sports you need Sky satellite. You don’t even get it on cable.
