How to watch Wimbledon in 4K UHD with HDR in the UK. The Championships are back at the All-England Club and you can enjoy the action in Ultra High Definition.
What’s a British summer without Wimbledon? After the tournament was missed altogether in 2020 and played with limited capacity crowds last year, the 2022 edition of the tournament is back at full capacity.
Novak Djokovic is going for a fourth straight Wimbledon title, while Rafa Nadal is somehow defying age and injury to be in serious contention for a third straight Grand Slam victory in 2022.
On the men’s side, the old guard is supplemented by two-time winner Andy Murray who is hoping to turn the clock back one last time and leave the centre court crowd with more memories to cherish. Unfortunately, we’re already down a couple contenders with Marin Cilic and last year’s beaten finalist Matteo Berretini forced out through Covid.
On the women’s side of the draw, the great British hope Emma Raducanu was eliminated in round two, and Serena Williams is also out following a classic match-up against Harmony Tan that ran late on centre court last night. Boo!
Here’s how to watch Wimbledon 2022 in 4K HDR on the best TV you have in the house.
