Kayo is 4K in 2024



Recommended Posts

Channel 7 games would not be in 4K. Watched NRL in 4K on the weekend and it looked fantastic.

Here's a link to the games in 4k for the first five rounds

https://help.kayosports.com.au/s/article/Which-AFL-games-are-in-4K#one

Looks like 5 games a week

Our games for Round 1 and 2 are in 4k

Not sure what is the criteria for selection as a 4k game but Friday night games seem to be rarely 4k

Strangely Collingwood only has one 4k coverage in the first 5 rounds

as expected it's the fox production games only

c7 don't shoot in 4k

What a strange outcome where the bigger games get the lesser quality coverage

Reminds me of how long it took to drag the FTA channels into the HD world

Lots of complaining on various forums about the Kayo 4k shell game.

Foxtel does show Channel 7 games in 4k so it is available.

Some suggest it's a rights issue. Others say it's a capacity problem. Bottom line it's a lesser product. As an aside it's been suggested they have also removed the 5:1 sound channel from AFL.

Sounds to me like you get what you pay for with channel 7. You pay nothing so cop this.

I've been watching the 4k games on kayo (diagnostics showing 3840x2160) and I seriously can't tell the difference from the usual HD. Am I missing something? TV is 4k.

I've seen what its like on Foxtel but not Kayo yet. Will have to test it out. 

Are you using a Smart TV app or chromecast/Apple TV?

I've seen a couple of the 4K games as well on Kayo and it's only marginally better. I have very good eyes and am a stickler for this kind of thing. 1080p Kayo vs 4K Kayo is not worth an upgrade.

Yeah that's a tough one, should be coming through perfectly with those specs. 

I got a Sony 4K as well but usually chromecast. Will have a play around with the TV app and test it out.

Maybe it is better but it's just marginal so hard to tell? I guess there was more definition in the grass etc but the actual game it was difficult to see much difference.

Maybe if I had a bigger tv I think mines 55"

I have a 55” Sony oled 4K tv. And to me the 4K picture looks far sharper and better defined than the standard hi def picture. Easier to watch and makes the experience of viewing the game just that little bit more enjoyable.

No doubt right Dr. the better the tv the better the result.

I have Telstra high speed Nbn.

Also have a very high res TV.

I live in Wollongong and I haven't noticed a difference in the quality of Kayo at all.

In fact it seemed a tad sketchy in the beginning of the game.

It's probably still broadcast at its old res but any excuse to sting it's customers.

It's Rupert remember. 

Those private jets and yachts and wives all add up.

Can see multiple people beat me to it. I had the 4K come up on Kayo diagnostics. Honestly couldn't tell the difference from the 4K and HD. i have a 65 inch OLED using an Apple TV 4K. 

I have noticed a lot of buffering issues with Kayo so far this year - never had this issue previously.

I had it last year on every live AFL games. Nett result I have not bothered with kayo this year. We have fibre to the house. I have numerous friends with similar buggering problems.

I have only watched the Sydney game, and the Carlton community series game on Kayo so far, and I had the opposite experience. Last year I had heaps of buffering issues, so far I have had none. Long may it stay that way.

I used to have buffering issues on android tv but apple tv was fine, since last year it seems the reverse, quality drops/buffers on apple tv but android tv app seems pretty reliable (though was a bit blocky early in the Dogs game).

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    MELBOURNE BUSINESS by The Oracle

    In days of old, this week’s Thursday night AFL match up between the Demons and the Blues would be framed on the basis of the need to redress the fact that Carlton “stole” last year’s semi final away from Melbourne and with it, their hopes for the premiership.  A hot gospelling coach might point out to his charges that they were the better team on the night in all facets and that poor kicking for goal and a couple of lapses at the death cost them what was rightfully theirs. Moreover, now was
