Sky Will Broadcast All Formula 1 Races in 4K From Next Year

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Sky has confirmed that it will kick off 4K F1 coverage in 2017, with Sky Q customers set to benefit from the step up in picture quality. The TV giant has already confirmed that 4K movies, sport and entertainment shows will land later this year, around the time the new football season begins, but this represents great news for motoring fans.

Sky Sports has bagged the rights to Formula 1 between 2019 and 2024, but whether it simply bumps up the Sky Sports F1 HD channel to a 4K offering or rolls out a separate channel altogether remains to be seen. The company recently announced Sky Sports Mix, which will televise Premier League football to all Sky TV customers across the UK and Ireland. The future's going to be spent on the couch. [WhatHi-Fi]
