AT&T Brings Pebble Beach Pro-Am in Gorgeous 4K HDR on DIRECTV

Entertainment /

AT&T is covering the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in 4K HDR on DIRECTV Channel 105 beginning Thursday, Feb. 8 at noon EST.

Catch DIRECTV coverage of the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, including 4K HDR on holes 7, 17 and 18.

The annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is famous for its beauty. This year, AT&T is giving viewers every detail with DIRECTV’s* coverage in 4K HDR. It’s the most immersive at-home live viewing experience available!

And it all starts Thursday, Feb. 8 at noon ET.

With the clearer contrast of HDR, the beautiful ocean-side greens along the Monterey Peninsula will look as dramatic as if you were there in person. The wide color gamut and 10-bit color depth will enhance the beauty more than ever before. And at 60 frames a second, easily follow the ball as it flies down the fairway or inches toward the hole. 

AT&T/DIRECTV has a long history as a technology leader in the latest video formats from digital and High Definition, to our leadership in 4K UHD and now live 4K HDR.  DIRECTV was the first traditional pay-TV video provider to offer live 4K HDR programming direct to customers’ TVs via satellite.  We launched the first dedicated live and linear 4K channels, featuring the first live 4K broadcast in in April 2016. We’ve since broadcasted hundreds of hours of live sporting and other events.

You’ll get an eyeful of stunning scenery and great golf in the industry’s best picture format. And the “AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Experience” gives you more tournament action in HD on the DIRECTV 4-screens-in-one Mix channel**.
