DIRECTV, the first U.S. pay-TV provider to broadcast live sports in 4K HDR, will be the exclusive live, 4K carrier of this weekend’s Scotland-based golf championship The Open. The tournament starts live, Thursday, July 19 at 1:30 a.m. ET. Catch coverage of holes 1 and 18 on DIRECTV 4K Channel 106.

The 4K HDR broadcast will bring those long drives on the magnificent Carnoustie Golf Links to your living room in stunning clarity!

4K offers 4x as many pixels as high definition (HD). With high dynamic range (HDR), you’ll see every swing with greater clarity, better contrast, wide color gamut and 10-bit color depth.  And at 60 frames per second, the motion of every swing will be more fluid.
