Fox Sports have just announced the news we’ve all been hoping for – they’ll be showing Formula One in 4K in 2019!

The Catch? NOPE – here it is in black and white: “FOX SPORTS confirming it will broadcast every practice, qualifying and race and with no ad-breaks during racing on Foxtel 4K.”

This demonstrates a real commitment to 4K from Foxtel, with more than 40 NRL games in 2019, 40 AFL Games and a bunch of Super Rugby and Womens football to be shown in 4K.

Head of FOX SPORTS, Peter Campbell, said: “We can’t wait to broadcast Formula One races in 4K Ultra HD on Foxtel 4K, starting with the Australian Formula One Grand Prix.

“Fans already love our proposition of broadcasting every Formula One practice, qualifying and race LIVE with no ad-breaks during racing, so we think they will enthusiastically embrace this new innovation of 4K Ultra HD which takes the viewing experience to the next level.

“Foxtel is clearly the home of 4K Ultra HD sports coverage with Formula One now sitting alongside 4K Ultra HD coverage of the NRL, AFL, Super Rugby and women’s football matches this season.”
