Foxtel has launched a new dedicated 4K Ultra HD channel so subscribers with an iQ4 set top box can watch every game of the Rugby World Cup 2019 live in glorious 4K.
RWC 4K Ultra HD will go live on Wednesday September 18 and will be Foxtel’s second 4K channel.
The 2019 Rugby World Cup kicks off in Japan on September 20 with the opening ceremony.
Foxtel viewers can watch all 48 games in 4K Ultra High Definition including the Final which will be played in November 2.
RWC 4K Ultra HD will be available to Foxtel Sports HD subscribers with an iQ4 set-top box on Channel 499.
Other Foxtel and Foxtel Now subscribers can also watch every game of every nation of the Rugby World Cup 2019 live in HD on Fox Sports Channel 503.
“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,” said Peter Campbell, Head of Fox Sports.
“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.”
Foxtel has also launched a promotion for 14 pubs across Australia to showcase the Rugby World Cup 2019 in 4K for their patrons with another 4,500 licensed venues offering access to the matches in HD.
