How to watch Euro 2024 – what do I need?

As Euro 2024 is not being produced in 4K, you won’t need a device or a display to see all that 4K detail. What you will need, though, is a device capable of showing HDR content.

Practially all 4K TVs sold these will support some form of HDR, and all are required to support HDR10 and HLG as standard.

BBC’s iPlayer app supports HDR but ITVX does not, so if you want to watch the matches in the best way possible, you’ll need a device that supports HDR streaming on iPlayer.

The BBC has a list of compatible TVs here, but don’t despair if yours isn’t listed: various Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple, and other streaming devices are listed, and plug straight into a HDMI port. This would be a great way of adding HDR support without investing in a whole new TV.

You also need an internet connection with the bandwidth to deal with a stream. The BBC recommends a speed of 24Mbit/s for 4K or 12Mbit/s for a reduced experience for UHD streams. As the tournament is being show at 1080p HDR, you won’t need as much as 12Mbit/s
