The Masters in 4K: guide

The Masters will be available for the first time in 4K Ultra HD from Friday April 12.

Coverage from Augusta National Golf Club is in addition to a dedicated Masters channel beginning on Sunday April 8.

In this holy-grail event for golf fans, Foxtel will provide the most comprehensive coverage of The Masters from the famed Augusta National Golf Club, with exclusive vision of Amen Corner holes 11, 12 and 13 in 4K Ultra HD on Foxtel 4K (Channel 444) for the first time.

Viewers will be able to see every blade of grass, every pain staking bunker and water hazard like never before with 4K Ultra HD available from April 12 to 15 when the world’s best golfers vie for the coveted Green Jacket.

FOX Sports 505 will become a dedicated 24 hour channel from Monday, April 8 providing an immersive destination for fans ahead of the Live and ad-break free coverage of all four competition rounds, with coverage starting from 5.00am Friday, April 12 (AEST).

Foxtel 4K will present coverage of Amen Corner, starting with the first round on Friday, April 12 from 12.45am to 8.00am. The Amen Corner cameras will follow every group as they play these three holes.

Amen Corner has played host to some of the tournament’s biggest moments.

In 1996, then tournament leader Australia’s Greg Norman missed a short putt on 11 before his tee shot on 12 rolled back into Rae’s Creek.

In 2011, Rory McIlroy saw his tournament hopes slip away with a bogey on 11, a double bogey on 12 with four putts and a hooked drive on 13.

And in 2017, defending champion Jordan Spieth sent his tee shot and then his second shot into Rae’s Creek, walking off the short par 3 hole with a seven.

FOX Sports’ Live action from Round One of The Masters swings into action on Friday, April 12, with a stellar field including defending champion Patrick Reed, World Number 1 Dustin Johnson, recent PGA winners Rory McIlroyand Paul Casey, as well as Australian hopefuls Marc Leishman, Jason Day and Adam Scott, who won the event in 2013.

FOX Sports’ own golf expert and former professional Paul Gow will be on the ground to provide daily news reports from the event for FOX Sports News.

FOX Sports’ digital channels will continue to deliver multi-camera coverage of the tournament with fans able to watch Featured Groups, Amen Corner (holes 11, 12 and 13) and the 15th and 16th holes via the FOX Sports APP or at Foxsports.com.au.

    • Worth is such a personal choice. I have 4K tv’s and a 4K player and buy 4K movies on disc and can notice the difference between 4K movies and Blu-ray.

      It isn’t worth it to me to switch from Cable to Satellite to get an iQ4 as I place more worth in the reliability of Cable. If I was already on Satellite, I would switch to the IQ4 today.

          • Yeah because Kayo is super reliable.

            I’ve had both Cable and Satellite. Although Satellite will drop out a few minutes a year in very large storms I’ve had cable outages take out my signal for days.

          • When I had Kayo trial it was great for that 2 month period.

            I’ve had cable since 2003 and except for half a day when a tree fell onto the cable in another suburb I’ve never had a problem with it.

            Not interested in having a satellite dish on my roof.
