The 4K in Indian cinemas is interesting, but cricket's surely not popular enough here for that idea.


I would go to a 4K cinema for the final - assuming we were playing instead of choking....

 


Haha! :-D

Me too, and even choking is something to see I suppose.

I wonder why they mention S.A. re their graphics, must be re other work they do here?

Re: 4K Cricket World Cup

Remember this thread's in the DStv Now section - there's few places in the world that will broadcast 4K via satellite due to expense, the only consideration we can hope for here and especially in this economy is an online 4K option.

It is a surprise that MC haven't gotten further into that, their intent is clearly to stay strongly involved with online and they're missing the boat here.

Hi,

 

Seeing a few countries got the 2015 Cricket World Cup in 4K/UHD and most countries getting the 2019 Cricket World Cup in 4K. What is the chance of us getting the CWC in 4K/UHD or do we have to wait for 2023/2027/Never?


Which countries... or shall I say... which networks ?
