Sky wants you to watch the Royal Wedding in 4K Ultra HD this May

In a first for marriages of ginger blokes to women way out to their league, Sky has announced that it will be showing the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle in stunning 4k Ultra HD definition.

The UK broadcaster already airs select content in UHD, letting viewers better appreciate everything from the world’s oceans in David Attenborough’s Blue Planet to Mo Salah’s finishing in the Premier League.

Now, you add crystal clear coverage of the UK’s leading chinless wonders to its 4K arsenal.

Sky customers with nothing better to do on a Saturday will need to subscribe to the company’s premium Sky Q service – as well as having a 2TB Sky Q box and Ultra HD-ready TV – to tune in to the Royal Wedding in 4K.

Coverage of the event starts on Saturday May 19 at 9am BST on Sky News and Sky One, with the UHD broadcast being accompanied by a new Sky News app function called ‘Royal Wedding: Who’s Who Live’, which will offer dedicated coverage of wedding guests as they arrive at St George’s Chapel.

An early frontrunner for Most Pointless Thing of the Year, the Who’s Who Live feature will not only name the guest but also provide information about their connection to the Royals.

Sky’s coverage also means that those wanting to catch a glimpse of the grandeur while on-the-go can tune in via the Sky Go streaming app. It’s available on virtually any device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs and Macs, as well as most set-top boxes and consoles.

So, there you have it. t’s 2018 and the supposed highlight of the year here in Blighty is watching a bunch of other people walking into a church.
