A second dedicated 4K Ultra HD channel on Foxtel will give subscribers exclusive coverage of every match of the Rugby World Cup 2019 live with no ad breaks during play in 4K ultra HD.
The RWC 4K Ultra HD will arrive on Wednesday, September 18 just before the Rugby World Cup on September 20. The RWC 4K Ultra HD channel will be available exclusively to Foxtel Sports HD subscribers with an iQ4 set-top box on channel 499*.
Peter Campbell, Head of Fox Sports said, “Foxtel’s first 4K Ultra HD channel redefined the way Australians experience sport. Our winter sport codes in 4K Ultra HD kept things hotter than ever across NRL, AFL and Super Rugby and, with the addition of our new, channel, RWC 4K Ultra HD, fans will feel like they’re part of the action when the Wallabies take on the world’s best in Japan.
“The arrival of our Rugby World Cup 4K Ultra HD channel also sets us up for a blockbuster season of incredible sport this summer, which will see even more 4K Ultra HD action, including our Ashes winning Aussie cricket team, lighting up screens in the coming months.”
