The payoff for fans of Premier League clubs subscribing to Peacock Premium is real. Not only is the service enhancing the Premier League experience, but there are some really exciting developments in the works. That includes plans for Peacock to stream 4K Premier League games beginning next year.
Speaking by phone to World Soccer Talk, Peacock’s SVP, Product & UX John Jelley broke the news to us.
“We have got plans for Dolby Atmos in the works alongside 4K next year. We’re also planning 5.1 audio next year as well.
“I think those will make a real improvement to the premium experience of the game for those who have the capabilities to watch it in 4K, Dolby Atmos or 5.1 audio.”
The fact that Peacock has plans for 4K Premier League games is music to the ears of soccer fans. That’s in addition to all of the soccer programming on Peacock’s schedule.
Current availability of Premier League games in 4K
Currently, broadcasts of Premier League games in 4K are available via fuboTV, YouTube TV and DirecTV. Approximately 15 matches per month are available in 4K, which is a sizable increase compared to last season.
There’s no doubt that the picture quality of a game in 4K is far superior especially on a big TV.
Peacock already rolling out 4K programming
Available for $4.99 per month, Peacock Premium is already rolling out 4K programming for its movies. That includes The Black Phone, Uncut Gems, select films in the Fast and Furious series and more, according to reports.
The list of devices that are supported by Peacock is too long to mention here. But it’s safe to say that it’s available across every popular media device from your computer, phone, smart TV and media player.

When they have a definitive date for 4K service could you please post it here. Also it would probably pay off in the long run if nbc and other programmers shot it in native 8k and the downrezzed it to 4K. In that way when more people like myself that have 8k tvs will be able to receive the feed in 8k without nbc, fox, or whomever is broadcasting won’t need to buy new equipment and upgrade the signal immediately when the critical mass of 8k sets is reached in their opinion.

So looking forward to this. Hopefully it will be more than 15 games a season.

Hopefully they are doing a multicast feature for 10 pm EST Saturday games so I can watch more than one match

So is it going to start later THIS season in 2023, or will we have to wait for the 23/24 season? I hope it’s the former since they already are set up and streaming 4K for other programming.

Wonder if the 4K feed will apply to this year’s World Cup also?

I Watched games in 4K using a YouTube TV free preview and it was great so looking forward to games on peacock . Just wonder if it will be available on all plans

After watching the 4k matches on Directv this weekend can confirm they are top notch – they look fantastic – excited for this to also be available via Peacock.

Guessing these will be the NBC matches (since USA not on Peacock) and then maybe select matches broadcast in 4k that are not on USA. Using next week as an example that would just be Arsenal-Fulham, the 12:30 ET NBC match. All other 4k matches this weekend are on USA.

Glad they are streaming I. 4K bc it’s long overdue. All the other services broadcasting soccer should follow suit.
