Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will begin from Friday and run through Aug8, a perfect opportunity to tune in to your 4K TV. Watch the games live from Japan on your 4K TV on NBC. The channel will broadcast the primetime event each night in a 4K video.
Ryan Waniata, managing editor of electronics at Reviewed.com said, “the combination of these technologies could make this one of the most exciting sporting events you can experience from your couch.”
He further said, “The 4K resolution will make even minor details pop, the availability of HDR (including Dolby’s dynamic version) will bring rich contrast and explosive colors, and Dolby Atmos could really tie it all together, providing atmospheric sound to bring these iconic moments to life.”
The 4K primetime telecast will feature events such as gymnastics, track and field, swimming, diving, and beach volleyball.
On the Olympic Channel, owned by the US Olympic Committee, the International Olympic Committee, and Comcast you can watch tennis and wrestling. Enjoy watching the golf competition on The Golf Channel.
The trend suggests Americans are loving 4K TVs as they get bigger and cheaper. According to Stephen Baker, vice president of industry analysis at The NPD Group, about 43% of TVs in U.S. living rooms were 4K, as are about 31% of all TVs. Currently, around 95% of all TVs 43 inches and larger sold in the U.S. are 4K TVs.
Why Watch Games On 4K TV?
4K broadcasts are not only impressive but are crystal clear, so much so you can see the details of hitters’ uniforms during close-ups in the batter’s box with the 4K video. The images are crisp, especially the wide shots of the ballpark, it’s like you are perched high in the upper level looking down on the venue.
If you have watched the British Open 4K broadcast, sure you would not have missed the green lining up the putt. It’s an experience on the best HD video I can stand with.
