Super Bowl 2023 4K HDR live stream

As the official 2023 Super Bowl broadcaster, Fox is the only place you can watch the Chiefs vs Eagles live stream in 4K HDR. That's because it will film the action in 1080p HD, then upscale it to 4K for the TV broadcast. Other services will make do with Fox's 1080p HD footage.

If you don't have cable, that's ok. Cord-cutting service FuboTV is an excellent way to watch Super Bowl 2023 in 4K HDR. We have full details below including the Fubo TV 7-day free trial which will allow new customers to watch the Chiefs vs Eagles live stream in 4K for free. YouTube TV will also show the Fox 4K broadcast online, and Fox Sports cable subscribers will be able to watch at top resolution through 4K-enabled Fox Sports apps as well. Just make sure that whatever device you are using to stream is equipped for 4K HDR, and you're good to go.

Sadly, there are no 4K options in the UK or elsewhere, but FuboTV and YouTube TV subscribers can watch the Super Bowl in 4K from abroad by using a VPN. Of course, if you're not too bothered about watching Chiefs vs Eagles in tip-top quality, then don't miss our section on Super Bowl 2023 free live streams too.

It will be the first time that the Chiefs have faced the Eagles in the NFL season finale.

Super Bowl FAQs

Is the Super Bowl broadcast in true 4K?

No. Fox will record the game in HD and then 'upscale' the footage to 4K for broadcast. This is because 4K footage requires a lot more bandwidth, and, in a live broadcast, you don't want any issues creeping in. Fox will record some footage using 4K cameras, and even some 8K ones, though this will be restricted to extreme close-ups for close calls and panning shots from the skycam, for example.

What format of HDR is the Super Bowl broadcast in?

Fox will record the game in Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), but will then convert it to HDR10, which is a format much more commonly supported by streaming services and smart TVs. To see the benefit, you'll have to make sure your TV supports the correct HDR10 format. If not, you'll still see the game in 4K, but without the benefits of HDR. Here's our pick of the best HDR TVs.

Comcast Xfinity X1 cable customers will be the only ones able to watch Super Bowl 2023 in 4K with Dolby Vision. Before you rush out to the shops to get the Xfinity box, it's worth considering that this Dolby Vision is an upscale of the HDR10 feed which is itself an upscale from the HLG original. So, it's an upscale of an upscale, and perhaps not the most authentic Dolby Vision look and feel you'll ever see.

What devices will let you to watch the Super Bowl in 4K HDR?

To watch the Super Bowl in all its 4K HDR glory, you'll need a pretty fast internet connection (about 18-25Mbps or above), a subscription carrying a 4K HDR stream (like FuboTV) and a 4K-, HDR-capable device on which to watch. These include the Amazon Fire Stick 4K, Apple TV 4K and Roku Express 4K, among others. Make sure your TV is compatible with 4K and HDR as well – most bought in the last few years should be. Head over to our expert guide to all the best TV sets you can buy right now if you fancy a Super Bowl-worthy upgrade.
