It’s the last week of the Premier League season with the championship and relegation places still up for grabs.
Liverpool have taken City down to the last match of the season, and while City would be favourites to win, on a nervous day you can never be too sure what will happen. After Everton secured their top flight status for the season, eyes turn towards Burnley and Leeds on the last day. One of them is going down, which one will it be?
It’s the final game and at the top and bottom of the league every point matters, and we imagine you won’t want to miss out on the action. So if you’re watching your team from the comfort of your own home, you’ll want to watching them in best quality possible.
Here’s our guide on how to watch the Premier League in 4K HDR for what’s left of the 2021/22 season.
Where can I watch the Premier League in 4K HDR?
There are two main avenues of watching the Premier League 2021/22 season in 4K.
Option number one is Sky Q. The British broadcaster brought HDR to its platform in 2020 and this is the first season that it’s broadcasting the English Premier League in HDR.
To watch Sky Q’s HDR coverage, you’ll need a Sky Sports or Sky Sports Football subscription with HDR subscribers needing to press the red button during a game to view the 4K HDR feed.
The second option is BT Sport. BT doesn’t have as many matches as Sky, but has been producing 4K HDR football programming for longer. BT Sport customers need a subscription to BT Sport Ultimate to view in 4K HDR, with a recommended connection speed of 30Mbps.
There is a third option although that avenue is now closed for the season. Amazon Prime streamed 20 matches in December 2021 via Prime Video. A Prime Video subscription is required (Amazon still offers a 30-day free trial) and Amazon recommends a internet speed of at least 15Mbps for 4K HDR.
What do I need to watch the Premier League in 4K HDR?
The most obvious component is having a 4K HDR compatible TV. 4K HDR TVs are the norm now rather than the outlier, though not all 4K TVs are made equal. For the best performance you’ll need to shop further up price range.
Sky subscribers will have their Sky Q box (you can check this page for which Sky Q boxes are compatible) and Sky Glass. BT Sport and Amazon Prime customers need a subscription to the relevant tier and access to a 4K capable device and display to watch it on.
So, for example, the Roku Express 4K and Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K partnered with a 4K TV will do.
Other devices that support BT Sport include the PS4 Pro, Google Chromecast with Google TV, Apple TV 4K, Roku 4K devices and Xbox Series S and X. There is an app for the PS5 but 4K HDR is not supported.
You can count on Prime Video being supported by all those devices in 4K, as well as Amazon’s own Fire TV Cube.
