The broadcaster is placing UHD cameras on Centre Court Philippe-Chatrier to capture the top matches in the competition, which is being held between September 27 and October 11.
In Germany and Austria, the Discovery-owned broadcaster has entered into partnerships with HD + (Germany) and with simpliTV (Austria) for the Eurosport 4K event channel.
Thomas Bichlmeir, Director Distribution & Commercial Strategy at Discovery Germany, said: “Thanks to our strong partners HD + and simpliTV, we can once again present Roland-Garros in Germany and Austria in UHD. Sport thrives on emotions and razor-sharp images. The Eurosport 4K channel is a must for all tennis fans who want to experience the Centre Court feeling in the best picture quality in their own living room.”
Last year, the Spaniard Rafael Nadal triumphed in the final against the Austrian Dominic Thiem and secured his 12th French Open title. In the women’s singles, Ashleigh Barty (AUS) won the final against Markéta Vondroušová (CZE) and fulfilled her dream of a first Grand Slam title.
