TORONTO, Jan. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - TSN debuts the ultimate 4K Ultra HD live sports viewing experience when the red-hot Toronto Raptors host the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Live 4K production is a bold new frontier for the TV industry, intensifying the live sports viewing experience with enhanced motion detail, increased screen pixel counts, and greater brightness range.

TSN's five national feeds will follow up on this 4K debut with a slate of 4K broadcasts featuring the Toronto Raptors, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Ottawa Senators (see below for TSN's 4K broadcast schedule). Additional broadcasts available in 4K on TSN will be announced in the coming months.

"We are proud to be at the forefront of the next evolution in sports television with our first live broadcast in stunning 4K Ultra HD next week," said Stewart Johnston, President of TSN. "TSN has always been the innovator in live sports production, and we will continue to do what we do best – deliver a world-class sports viewing experience to Canadian sports fans, now more vivid than ever before."

Last week, Bell Media's Discovery Canada announced that its premium video streaming service Discovery GO now offers a growing inventory of titles available in 4K on Samsung UHD TV, and that its upcoming original Canadian drama FRONTIER is currently being shot in 4K.
