This year marks the first time the Super Bowl will stream in 4K Ultra-High Definition.

After weeks of work, the Hard Rock Stadium in Florida is ready for Super Bowl LIV. For the first time, the Super Bowl will be broadcast in 4K, which requires even more work, more cabling, more monitors, and a lot of cameras.

“We’ve had upwards of six thousand people working on this site since we’ve been here starting on January second. So we’ve been here since just after New Year’s and we’ve been working you know ever since, you know, just to get everything ready to get us to this point,” Eric Finkelstein, NFL Senior Director of Event Planning said.

Super Bowl 54 will be covered with cameras, literally.

With 20 end zone and end line pylon cameras, wireless cameras on the field, over 24 super motion cameras, 3 8k cameras, 8 high speed 4k cameras, and 2 sky cams.

To see the Big Game in ultra-high definition, you’ll need a few things — starting with a 4K TV. You can pick up a 4K TV for under $300.

Then, you’ll need a 4K set-top box or streaming device, like Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K, Apple TV 4K, or the Roku Ultra.

You can also check with your cable or satellite provider to find if they’ll carry the game in 4K, or you can stream it via the Fox Sports app, or subscription sports streaming service that offers 4K.

For streaming, you’ll also need high-speed internet of 25-megabits per second or faster.

The Big Game kicks off 5:30 pm Sunday right here on WZDX FOX.
