iPlayer to stream key FA Cup games in UHD

" BBC iPlayer will bring football fans the Manchester City v Brighton FA Cup semi-final (April 6th) and the final (May 18th) live in Ultra HD and HDR for the first time. Those watching on compatible Ultra HD TVs can watch the live stream on BBC iPlayer by pressing the Red Button during the BBC’s coverage, or directly through the BBC iPlayer app on their TV.

This is the BBC’s latest Ultra HD trial as it continues to pioneer next-generation streaming for UK audiences. BBC iPlayer is the only streaming service in the UK to offer people live Ultra HD and HDR programmes. Its previous trials have proved incredibly popular with audiences, including:"

" In light of the experimental nature of the FA Cup trial and the high bandwidth required, there will be a cap of tens of thousands of people watching live at a time, as there was during the World Cup. Audiences will need an Internet connection of at least 40Mbit per second for full 3840 pixel Ultra HD or 20Mbit per second for 2560 pixel Ultra HD. Wi-Fi performance can vary greatly, so a wired Internet connection to the TV may provide a more consistent Ultra HD experience, suggests the BBC. Footage will be played at 50 frames per second. "
