Blue Jays in 4K: it’s the next best thing to being there

Rogers and Sportsnet set to dazzle with MLB in 4K this season

You won’t believe what you’ve been missing when you see baseball action broadcast live in glorious 4K – it’s crystal-clear detail that’s sure to make your jaw drop. Picture this: tuning in to see your team and feeling like you’re in the middle of all the action. That’s exactly what you can expect when you watch the Blue Jays in 2017.

And if you can’t catch a big game or show, there’s no need to worry. The new Rogers NextBox 4K PVR gives you the ability to record up to eight programs at a time and store up to 120 hours of 4K entertainment or 240 hours of HD. Talk about a win-win.

With the very best in baseball, fans can punch their ticket to a premium viewing experience on Sportsnet 4K and Sportsnet ONE 4K, available to Rogers customers with a NextBox 4K or NextBox 4K PVR new set-top box, plus a 4K theme pack subscription.

Rogers and Sportsnet teamed up for some notable 4K “firsts” in 2016, from the first live sports broadcast in North America to the first productions and broadcasts of MLB games. Launched in April 2016, Sportsnet 4K (channel 998) and Sportsnet ONE 4K (channel 997) are North America’s first 24/7 dedicated sports feeds to feature 4K content.

Looking to build on their post-season run in 2016, the Blue Jays will be swinging for the bleachers in 4K. For the second straight year, all 81 regular season Blue Jays home games will be produced and broadcast by Sportsnet in 4K.

It’s time to amp up your viewing experience, sports fans. Get ready to see swings of the bat like you never thought possible, all courtesy of Rogers 4K.
