England vs Sweden LIVE STREAM: How to watch World Cup 2018 online in 4K Ultra HD

England face Sweden in the first of today’s World Cup quarter-final clashes in Russia.

Both teams are battling for a place in the semi-finals, where they will play either Russia or Croatia.

England haven’t reached the semi-finals of the World Cup since Italia ’90, where they were knocked out by West Germany after penalties.

Jamie Vardy suffered a groin strain in the dramatic victory over Colombia, and is a concern for today’s game.

On the plus side, both Ashley Young and Kyle Walker are in contention after picking up knocks against Colombia.

Walker, however, will need to be careful not to pick up a booking, as he is only one yellow card away from missing a potential semi-final clash.

The same is true of Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Sweden, meanwhile, will be without right-back Mikael Lustig, who is suspended for today’s game.

How to watch England vs Sweden online in 4K…

BBC One will air the quarter-final between England and Sweden. Coverage starts at 2pm before kickoff at 3pm.

Radio commentary will also be available for those without access to a jaw-dropping 4K display, which can be accessed via the BBC website, as well as smartphone apps such as TuneIn Radio.

The BBC Sport website will also show coverage of the game live, complete with real-time text commentary.

The BBC Sport smartphone app – which is available to download for free on iOS and Android devices – also features live coverage and text commentary.

BBC’s flagship iPlayer service will also air coverage of the game.

This allows football fans to consume highlights across all Russia World Cup 2018 games whenever they want – the service is available for desktops and smartphones.

BBC iPlayer can also be accessed through Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, BT Vision, Google Chromecast, EE TV, FreeSat, Freeview, NOW TV, Nvidia Shield, Roku, Sky HD, Sky Q, Talk Talk TV, Virgin Media and YouView.

Log-in to any of these smart TV or set-top box apps to stream the latest coverage, or catch-up on-demand.

If your HD TV model is not supported by the options listed above, you can always stream coverage from a Google Chrome web browser window to the big screen using a ChromeCast.

You will need a valid TV Licence if you want to watch or record live programmes.

It is a criminal offence in the UK to watch “live” television without a TV Licence.

You will also need a Licence to download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer no matter what device you are consuming from.

The BBC has been the only channel offering lavish, 4K viewing for British audiences.

If you want to watch the World Cup in 4K you will need to open up the BBC iPlayer app on your TV or device, go to Settings, and then scroll down to “Try new features in iPlayer BETA”.

If you select that and you see an option saying “Play Ultra HD Trial” (if you’re using BBC iPlayer in non-Beta mode) or Play UHD Test Loop (if you’re in Beta mode), there’s a good chance you’ll be able to watch World Cup 2018 streams in incredible 4K when they start.

BBC 4K trials are limited to a maximum number of streamers, so it is advised to tune into the fixture as soon as it starts with the pre-match build-up to maximise your chances of securing coverage in the highest possible fidelity.

The last necessity you will need for a 4K World Cup experience in the UK is fast broadband. The BBC has emphasised you should have a steady broadband speed of 40Mbps or higher to get a full 3840×2160 pixel stream. Or 20Mbps to secure a 2560-pixel stream.

Although it appears, at least, that HDR will be available at much lower bitrates than that.
