Sky Sports will be the first broadcaster to show Test cricket in 4K this summer, when it shows England take on South Africa.

The Test series takes place throughout July and August, and will be screened in a resolution with four times as many pixels as high definition.

Previously, Sky has shown Premier League football and F1 in 4K.

The four Test matches will be shown exclusively live. Viewers will also be treated to multiple camera angles, Ultra HD (aka 4K) graphics, Hawkeye for close calls, and "enhanced statistical offerings".

"With Ultra HD, customers can enjoy the four Test matches, with four times better picture quality and four times greater clarity," said Bryan Henderson, Sky Sports head of cricket. "It is a first for Sky Sports and we can't wait to bring you closer to the action, excitement and drama that the South Africa Test series will deliver this summer."

The first Test takes place at Lords from 6-10th July. The second is at Trent Bridge from 14-18th July, while the third is at the Oval from 27th-31st July. The final Test takes place at Old Trafford from 4-8th August.
