Wimbledon finals: How to watch in 4K with BT TV and BBC iPlayer

Make yourself a bowl of strawberries and cream and settle down for a weekend of exquisite tennis in stunning 4K.

Things are heating up in SW19 as we head towards the finals weekend and the crowning of the 2019 Men’s and Women’s champions.

All of the action from Centre Court is available to BT TV customers in 4K on the BBC iPlayer, meaning you can get a better view than ever before, from the comfort of your own sofa.

Wimbledon 2019 has been a spectacular and unforgettable tournament with the breath-taking run of 15-year-old Coco Gauff, fan-favourite doubles team of Andy Murray and Venus Williams and the evergreen magnificence of former champions Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal.

The finals weekend promises to be two days of the highest quality tennis with legends, new stars and hopefully some British sunshine.

Make sure you don't miss a single serve with our quick guide to watching the finals in 4K on BT TV.

Getting 4K set up with BT TV

Step 1. The right TV

First things first, you’ll need a 4K TV. 4K TVs have displays with a higher pixel density for richer colours and clearer, crisper, more detailed images.

Step 2. The right box

You’ll also need a 4K-ready box. Our powerful 4K TV box comes included with the Max 4K TV package, and has 300 hours of storage space too.

Step 3. The right connection

With our Max 4K package, there are plenty of options for 4K viewing. You’ll need a fast enough broadband connection to watch it all, so we’ll let you know what you can get at your address when you order.

How to watch Wimbledon in 4K on BT TV


Once you’ve got your TV and box set up, it couldn’t be easier to start watching every smash, lob and rally.

Just press the blue button on your BT TV remote, head to the Players and Apps area and then choose BBC iPlayer.

Having problems?

If it’s not working, you can do a manual software update on your box. Head to ‘Settings’ and then ‘Software Information’. That should get you fixed.
