Norwegian operator Altibox, part of the Lyse utility and broadband group, said it is now showing the channel Viasat UHD, enabling views to watch sports in ultra-high definition, or 4K. The resolution is up to four times higher than the current HD standard and shames up to 60 frames per second, making the most impact on larger screens. According to electronics sector statistics, one in two television sets sold in Norway measures between 55 and 65 inches, and one third of these support 4K.
