How Can I Watch Bathurst 1000 in 4K?
4K will have its own, dedicated channel which will launch on October 3. This will be Channel 444, and will be available as part of a Foxtel Platinum HD or Foxtel Sports HD subscription. In order to access the channel, subscribers need to upgrade to the iQ4 set-top box. The Bathurst 1000 action will then kick off on 4K Channel 444 on Sunday, October 7, starting with a replay of the Top Ten Shootout — which decides who starts on pole position — followed immediately by the race. The timing couldn’t be better, with Australia’s biggest race signalling the start of a new era for Foxtel.
All the action will also be shown, for the first time, ad-break free. For the real Bathurst enthusiasts, that will include not just the Top Ten Shootout replay and the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, but also all of the practice and qualifying sessions, which will air live on FOX SPORTS 506, with the option to stream the Bathurst action free to the Foxtel Go app within minutes of getting started.
On October 1, FOX SPORTS 506 will become a 2018 Bathurst 1000 dedicated channel, showing previous editions of the Great Race, driver interviews, the latest news, as well as every minute of the event including a good amount of must-see action you won’t find on free to air TV.
