AT&T to Showcase BBC America’s Planet Earth II 4K UHD on DIRECTV
Imagine seeing the world through the eyes of a wild animal. Imagine seeing as it stalks its prey in the Brazilian jungle. Now, imagine it in the penetrating clarity of 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD).
On Saturday, AT&T will take you there with a live 4K UHD broadcast of Planet Earth II on DIRECTV. The 6-part sequel to the acclaimed BBC nature documentary series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, premieres in the U.S. on BBC America. It will be simulcast in 4K UHD and HD on DIRECTV.
Over 3 years in the making, with camera crews traveling to 40 different countries, the series tracks the living unseen world that inhabits the deserts, forests, islands, jungles and major cities of our planet.
Planet Earth II premieres Saturday, Feb. 18 at 9 p.m. ET and will run on consecutive Saturdays through March 25.
Catch it on DIRECTV 4K channel 104. The first episode of the series will be simulcast in HD on BBC America (channel 264), AMC (channel 254) and Sundance Channel (channel 557). The remaining HD simulcasts will be on BBC America only.
