How to watch The Ashes 2023 in 4K HDR

The Ashes 2023 is turning into another must-see event, though at the moment it’s all going in Australia’s favour as they took a two-nil lead in the series.

Controversy is never far from the pitch when England and Australia bat against each other in the long-running cricket series, and there were plenty of complaints about Australia’s sporting behaviour in the second test after Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey caught out Johnny Bairstow.

The series is happening in the UK but taking place across several venues with the third test taking place at Headingley in Leeds.

If you can’t be there, there’s another option to catch the option in 4K HDR. Here’s our guide on how to watch The Ashes 2023 in 4K HDR.
