Peacock TV is offering a neat extra for World Cup 2022 fans. It has been announced that all World Cup fixtures streamed from Peacock’s servers will be available in 1080p quality. This change will apply to the Spanish language stream for the Qatar 2022 event.
Furthermore, these matches will have a frame rate of 60fps (frames per second) instead of the 24fps used in traditional TV and movie broadcasts. The feature means that your matches will be smoother to watch.
Ultra-definition 4K streams will be available in limited cases, although Peacock doesn’t say when.
