There’s nothing like traveling and seeing the world up close in all of its stunning and brilliant hues. Most of us, however, aren’t able to travel the world, so maybe the new BBC Series, Planet Earth 2, could be the next best thing – and it’s all in 4K right from your own living room.
DISH will deliver live in 4K Ultra HD the highly-anticipated natural history series, Planet Earth II. The series is narrated by Sir David Attenborough and will air on BBC America (DISH Channel 540 for 4K) every Saturday night. DISH’s 4K broadcast offers an unrivaled level of clarity to Hopper 3 customers who tune in to watch the planet’s most remarkable creatures.
“It’s been more than 10 years since the world was first wowed by the original Planet Earth, and the second installment promises to deliver unmatched detail in crystal clear 4K resolution,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH executive vice president and chief technology officer. “We’ve heard our customers ask for more 4K content, so we’re making every effort to deliver this programming to households as its availability grows.”
Our family has been one of those DISH customers begging for more 4K content and we’re so thrilled that Planet Earth II is something we can share with our kids. According to BBCA President, Sarah Barnett, “The breathtaking visuals in Planet Earth II are nothing short of astounding. We are delighted to partner with DISH in bringing audiences this groundbreaking series in 4K, allowing viewers to get even closer to some of earth’s most incredible creatures and gorgeous landscapes.”
Planet Earth II, a sequel to the remarkable 2006 original, is an immersive exploration of the islands, mountains, jungles, grasslands, deserts and cities of the world. Captured in stunning Ultra-high definition detail, the documentary also embraces the latest camera stabilization, remote recording and aerial drone technology.
