4K content you can watch for free now
If you have bought a TV recently then chances are it’s a Freeview Play 4K model. 4K TVs have a resolution of 3840 x 2160p, which is the same as four full HD (1920 x 1080p) screens put together.
More resolution means more detail in the picture, making everything look sharper and clearer. Watch tennis, for example, and the ball is easier to see and follow in Ultra HD.
So what to watch and how? In our handy guide we have pulled together a list of some of the best received 4K content that you can watch on your Freeview Play TV now.
