MUMBAI: Sky Sports will show Test cricket in Ultra HD this summer when England take on South Africa in their Test series across July and August.

In a world first for Test cricket, Sky Q customers in the UK and Ireland can look forward to every ball of England’s Test series against South Africa in stunning Ultra HD with picture quality four times that of HD TV.

The four Test matches against South Africa form part of Sky’s biggest ever summer of sport and will be shown exclusively live throughout July and August. The multi camera coverage, available with Sky Q, will be supported by stunning Ultra HD graphics, Hawkeye and enhanced statistical offerings.

Sky Sports head of cricket Bryan Henderson commented, “With Ultra HD, customers can enjoy the four Test matches, with four times better picture quality and four times greater clarity. It is a first for Sky Sports and we can’t wait to bring you closer to the action, excitement and drama that the South Africa Test series will deliver this summer.”

Sky Sports has broadcast cricket since 1990 and the addition of Ultra HD viewing adds to a list of innovations that Sky has introduced over the years including stump microphones, interactivity, hi-motion replays, Hot Spot analysis, 3D, Sky Cart and Hawkeye.

Alongside Sky’s cricket in Ultra HD, Sky Q customers can continue to watch every F1 grand prix and 124 Premier League matches in Ultra HD throughout this season and next. With new rules, news cars and new engines, viewers can get even closer to the action on the track this summer and football fans will be able to enjoy the very best viewing experience as the Premier League season draws to a close.

Sky’s cricket and Formula 1 coverage is part of the biggest ever summer of sport on Sky Sports, with more major events than ever before, including live action from the ICC Champions Trophy, the British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand and The Open.
