Stan Sport offers a first for an Australian streaming service – live sport in 4K when it shows the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.
The entire UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals will be streamed live and on demand in 4K Ultra HD with stunning clarity, so you’ll almost feel like you’re there during the match.
The first 4K live streams will be hosted by Stan Sport’s Max Rushdon, Mark Bosnich and Craig Foster as they cover all the action from Manchester City vs Atletico on April 6 and Chelsea vs Real Madrid on April 7.
Both games will be streamed daily in 4K live and ad-free starting at 4:35 a.m. AEST.
Stan account holders can access 4K streams if they have the Stan Sport add-on and a supported 4K-enabled device, such as their smart TV or computer.
“The addition of 4K Ultra HD streaming means Australia’s top sports streaming service just got even better,” says Stan’s sports director Ben Kimber.
“We’re proud to lead the way as Australia’s first streaming service to offer live 4K sport and give football fans the best way to watch the game they love.”
In terms of watching sports in 4K, this is already possible for Fox Sport for customers, but they need an iQ4 or iQ5 decoder.
And we can already stream content in 4K on Stan and other streaming services like movies and TV shows, but this will be the first time Australians will be able to watch a live sporting event in 4K through a streaming service. provided through your broadband connection.
On Friday April 8, Stan Sport will broadcast the match between West Ham and Lyon in 4K.
The Stan Sport add-on is priced at $10 per month and new customers can start a free trial now by visiting stan.com.au/football.
