Only last week news broke out that the BBC are conducting live 4K broadcasts of the 2014 Fifa World Cup to head offices in London and MediaCity near Manchester. Last month Sky provided its first demonstration of a 4K broadcast from a Premier League football match. To think in 1970 the World Cup in Mexico was famous for being the first ever broadcast of colour for a World Cup tournament. However the footage had to be flown to the BBC in London to be broadcast at a later date.
Eleven of the 2014 Fifa World Cup matches will be given the 4K highlights treatment in our stores, covering five of the world cup stadiums. Key matches include Cameroon vs. Brazil on 23rd June, the 28th June will see the Last 16 game for the group winners of England’s Group D game as well as two quarter finals, one semi-final and the Final in Rio on 13th July.
