(MEDIA ALERT) - DIRECTV customers will be shouting “4!” instead of “Fore!” when they tune into this year’s 117th U.S. Open Championship, at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. They’ll be watching 4 days of golf action, on a 4-screens-in-1 “mosaic” channel1 and select holes in 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD).
Coverage will also include a 4K/UHD broadcast of 3 holes on the Erin Hills course during all 4 rounds on DIRECTV 4K channel 106.
Each channel within the U.S. Open Mix Channel (find it on DIRECTV channel 701) is in HD3, fully produced with its own announcers. It includes:
- The network simulcast (702) – FOX/FS1
- Featured Group 1 (703)
- Featured Group 2 (704)
- Featured Holes (705) - 13, 14, 15.
Each channel in the mix can be tuned to full screen.
DIRECTV subscribers with 4K/Ultra-High-Definition equipment and qualifying DIRECTV service can also get 4K coverage of holes 13, 14 and 15. And it all comes in stunning quality roughly 4x the screen resolution of HDTV on DIRECTV 4K channel 106.4 For more information on getting 4K UHD ready, visit http://www.directv.com/4k or call (800) 531-5000.
