BT Sport plans to produce first match in UHD and Dolby Atmos for subscribers
Premier League title contenders Liverpool and Chelsea will battle it out in what BT plans to be the first-ever live BT Sport match to be shown in UHD and Dolby Atmos sound. BT plans to be the first UK broadcaster to launch Dolby Atmos sound, which is currently scheduled to be available to subscribers of BT Sport’s UHD TV packages in January.
The match at Anfield on Tuesday, January 31, will kick off at 8pm and BT plans for every following Premier League match broadcast live on BT Sport to be available in UHD and Dolby Atmos sound, as well as a selection of FA Cup games. Dolby Atmos sound combined with Ultra HD will deliver the most immersive experience possible, allowing customers to feel as if they are in the stadium. It will be available for no extra cost with BT TV’s Total Entertainment pack.
From this season, BT has doubled the number of sports events broadcast in Ultra HD.
