How to watch the FIFA World Cup 2022 in 4K HDR – England games, supported TVs and more to day

The 2022 World Cup is here and if you want to watch all the action in 4K with HDR, we’ve got all the details below.

The 2022 World Cup is now really underway and the first round of the group matches is now all over. If you live in the UK and have a Smart TV, chances are you’ll be able to watch the tournament opener in 4K HDR.

BBC has announced it plans to feature each of the 33 games it has the rights to broadcast in the UHD format, with HDR support via the HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) format co-developed by the Beeb. There are 64 games in total at the tournament, so that means more than half are available to watch in 4K HDR.

How to watch World Cup in 4K on the BBC iPlayer

The BBC can’t deliver 4K over the traditional broadcast network, so you’ll need a smart TV (or media player) with the iPlayer app installed if you want to enjoy the World Cup in 4K on the BBC. Today, the BBC has vastly expanded the range of 4K TVs that can enjoy UHD content with HLG HDR.

The full list is here, but most sets from 2018 can handle the 4K UHD HDR broadcasts, including televisions from Samsung, Sony, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, LG, Panasonic, Philips, Toshiba, Sharp, HiSense and JVC.

The iPlayer app on some set-top boxes and media players from Amazon, Roku, Virgin Media and YouView can also handle the UHD streams.

Are ITV World Cup games in 4K?

Unfortunately not. ITV has not invested in 4K technology and so will not be broadcasting any of its 2022 World Cup matches in 4K. The BBC is the UK’s only game in town.

Given the problems fans had with streaming Euros on the ITV Hub last summer, you’ll be lucky if you can watch on ITV at all.
