The 2022 F1 season will be available in 4k with HDR on Sky Sports, for the first time. The prospect will have fans of motor sport, and AV enthusiasts salivating.
HDR expands the dynamic range of images, complementing the improved resolution of 4k UHD, adding greater depth and punch to images.
F1 in 4k HDR is available on Sky Q and Sky Glass, the new all-in-one streaming TV solution from Sky; subscribers can say “Hello Sky, Formula 1” to Sky Glass or into their Sky Q voice remote to find all the latest news and analysis, plus bespoke F1 content.
Coverage begins from Friday March 18’s first practice session through to Sunday’s season-opening Grand Prix, at the Bahrain International Circuit.
Jonathan Licht, Managing Director of Sky Sports said: “We are pleased to bring the 2022 Formula 1 season to life in a way fans won’t have experienced before. The stunning picture quality offered through HDR will make viewing the new Formula 1 season even more exciting and impactful than ever.”
