The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France will begin in June, and it will officially be available in 4K. White Wolf has learned the entire tournament—which will be aired on FOX and FS1 in the United States—will be broadcast in 4K via DIRECTV:
All 2019 Women’s World Cup games will be available in 4K to eligible DIRECTV customers with compatible equipment starting in June.
So from the start of the Group Stage on June 7 to the Final on July 7, all 52 World Cup matches will be available in ultra-high-definition through DIRECTV.
To watch the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 4K, you’ll obviously need compatible equipment: a 4K television, a 4K-capable DIRECTV box, and the correct DIRECTV programming package.
The 2018 FIFA Men’s World Cup in Russia was also broadcast in 4K last year, with matches available in the ultra-high-definition format from DIRECTV, Layer3 TV, Dish Network, Altice USA, Comcast (next-day availability in video on-demand only), and Hisense televisions with an exclusive Fox Sports: 2018 World Cup Edition App. The tournament was also available in 4K across the Atlantic, and the same will likely be the case for the Women’s World Cup this summer.
AT&T Communications’ DIRECTV is the United States’ clear leader in live 4K content, with three channels (104, 105, and 106) including two full-time 4K channels (104 and 105). Channel 106 is the satellite provider’s event channel, which features at least several sporting events per month. DIRECTV’s monthly 4K/4K HDR events schedule can be viewed here.
Led by Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, and Julie Ertz, the United States Women’s National Team is attempting to repeat as World Cup champions (2015) and win the country’s fourth title overall (1991, 1999, 2015).
The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup begins on June 7.
