After introducing customers to its 4K HDR beta over the summer with World Cup coverage, start-up virtual MVPD fuboTV has announced that three upcoming college football games on FS1 will be available in the next-generation format.
Friday night’s matchup between San Diego State and Stanford, as well as a Sept. 8 game pitting Western Michigan against Michigan, and a Sept. 15 contest between Fresno State and UCLA, will all be streamed to fuboTV users in 4K.
UPDATED: An earlier version of this story said the games would also be in HDR10, but a fuboTV rep told us that's not necessarily the case.
FuboTV users will need a 4K capable streaming device from Amazon, Google, Roku or Apple, or a capable Android smart phone. In the living room, they’ll also need HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 compatible cables and a proper 4K display.
Fresh off a $75 million funding round, fuboTV continues to plug live sports—and 4K HDR—as a means of differentiating itself from corporate vMVPD rivals.
The company is about to kick off its next national TV campaign, a humorous series called “Don’t Compromise.”
