How to watch the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final on TV, live online for free and in 4K HDR
Novak Djokovic will take-on Kevin Anderson in the Wimbledon final on Sunday, on the biggest day in the 2018 sporting calendar. The final starts two hours before the World Cup final between France and Croatia.
Anderson is recovering from a 6-hour ordeal of a semi-final against big-serving American John Isner. The game finished 26-24 in the fifth set. Anderson also vanquished the great Roger Federer in the quarter-finals, coming from two sets to love down against the GOAT.
Having come through two straight marathon encounters you’d think Anderson would be a heavy underdog heading into the Sunday’s final. However, he got a day off on Saturday, while the Djokovic vs Rafa Nadal semi-final was stretched out over two days. Three time champion Djokovic also endured a gruelling fifth set to overcome his old rival.
Djokovic vs Anderson: When is the Wimbledon Final?
The Men’s Single’s Final takes place on Sunday July 15, and starts at 2:00pm BST. Coverage starts on BBC 1 at 1:00pm. However, due to the clash with the World Cup Final, coverage is likely to switch to BBC 2 at 3:00pm.
Djokovic vs Anderson: How to stream online for free
To watch Djokovic vs Anderson in the Wimbledon final online, all you need to do is get your paws on BBC iPlayer – and this doesn’t cost a penny if you’ve got a valid UK TV license.
There are iPlayer apps available for virtually every modern platform and device. Below are some of the most popular to help you on your way.
How to watch the Wimbledon final in 4K HDR
Following on from streaming the 2018 World Cup in 4K HDR, the BBC’s moved straight on to Wimbledon. The coverage can only be streamed through the iPlayer app on a range of compatible devices.
You’ll need one of the following supported devices and an internet speed of at least 40Mbit/s for the full 3840 pixel Ultra HD or 20Mbit/s for 2560 pixel Ultra HD content. The footage will be played at 50-frames-per-second and the Beeb recommends a wired connection to the internet for the best experience.
Slightly disappointingly, iPlayer is continuing to limit the amount of 4K streams available to viewers to the “tens of thousands”. That means you’re going to have to log on nice and early (and get the rub of the green too), in order to watch the tournament in all its glory.
Sky Q customers with a 2TB box and Virgin Media ‘Full House’ customers with a V6 box can also tune in to the tennis over cable in 4K (no HDR).
