- You need an HDR-ready gadget, either an Android device or an iPhone (if you want to stream events with your phone).
- You will require a TV screen that supports HDR (if you're going to watch the event on tv).
On the other hand, a Chromecast Ultra device is required to use the BT Sport App to view a 4K HDR stream on your TV. However, you can also choose to Airplay the event in HDR or 4K if you have a 4K Apple TV.
