DIRECTV to Present 4K Coverage of Notre Dame Football on NBC

Watch 6 Notre Dame Football on NBC Games in Ultra HD

After a successful run in Rio, 4K ultra-high-definition (UHD) is about to take on the gridiron. AT&T* will offer 6 Notre Dame Football on NBC games in 4K UHD on DIRECTV this season.**

In addition to NBC’s traditional HD broadcast of all Notre Dame Football home games, NBC and DIRECTV will offer viewers 4K coverage of every Fighting Irish Football home game during the 2016 season.

Viewers will get 4K coverage of Notre Dame Football on NBC live. The 4K coverage accompanies NBC’s high-definition broadcast. It will feature the same on air commentators, camera angles and graphics.

These games will mark the first live broadcasts of college football games in the crisp, detail-rich 4K UHD format. NBC Sports will produce them.

Coverage kicks off Saturday, Sept. 10 at 3:30 p.m. ET. The Fighting Irish will take on the Nevada Wolf Pack for their home opener. Find the games on DIRECTV channel 106.

“From the Masters Tournament to the Olympics to Notre Dame football, DIRECTV is continuing to deliver the most live sports in 4K,” said Dan York, chief content officer, AT&T. “It’s appropriate we’re showcasing NBC Sports’ critically acclaimed production of Notre Dame football and the Irish’s iconic gold helmets in 4K, because this will be the gold standard for football telecasts.”
