BT Sport has announced it is broadcasting the much anticipated Champions League final between Tottenham and Liverpool in HD HDR.
Viewers watching both the UCL final and the UEFA Europa League final will be able to watch the games in VR360 on a mobile or tablet, and they will be able to choose between a VR360 produced programme, or select their own camera viewpoint.
BT Sport also revealed it plans to launch 4K HDR later this year, and will make the match on 1st June available in HD High Dynamic Range (HDR) on the BT Sport App.
As in previous years, both matches will be available for free via BT Sport’s YouTube channel or Virgin Media.
Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer brands, said: “We want to make BT a company that exceeds our customers’ expectations and does a brilliant job for the country. With both European finals being all-British affairs, we’re going to make them easier to watch for everyone in the UK than ever before as well as being the best-connected football viewing experience our customers have ever had.
“BT continues to offer our customers unrivalled choice – with the best content, the smartest devices, and the latest technology – through partnerships with the world’s most innovative companies. The launch of HDR maintains BT Sport’s leadership in bringing fans the very best pictures and sound following its debut as Europe’s first 4K broadcaster in 2015 and its worldwide debut of Dolby Atmos sound in 2017.”
