Women’s World Cup Final to be shown in Ultra HD
Spanish broadcasters RTVE will broadcast the final of the Women’s World Cup, between Spain and England, in the Ultra HD format.
RTVE has been broadcasting all the matches of the competition in Ultra High Definition through its test UHD channels via a TV aerial.
(Update : although reports suggest it is a 1080 upscaled to UHD)
“The broadcast of this historic final of the Women’s World Cup in Ultra High Definition responds to RTVE’s commitment to broadcast major events live, openly, for everyone and with the highest possible quality via DTT. It is the first television in the world to do so,” RTVE said in statement.
The UHD channels, TVE-UHD and TVE-UHD 2, have been testing across much of the country. But for some areas, they may not be able to receive these UHD transmissions until the regular broadcasts of RTVE in Ultra HD begin on February 15, 2024 by when it is expected 98% of the population will be reached.
The final of the Women’s World Cup may also be broadcast in UHD on BBC iPlayer, but this is yet to be confirmed.
