Prominent ISP/DTH provider Dish Home will broadcast FIFA Football World Cup matches on 2K. Viewers can watch the games live on Dish Home’s channel 981 on advanced resolution with the higher picture quality on specific Set Top Boxes.
But the availability of the said resolution will also depend on the TV set and the Set-Top-Boxes (STBs) of the customers. For those without a 2K-supported TV set, there are other viewing options. Dish Home’s channel numbers 170 and 982 will also air the matches live on SD and HD quality respectively.
But to watch the games on Dish Home, viewers need to buy a subscription. Media Hub which has exclusive rights to broadcast the Football World Cup 2022 has made it payment-based in Nepal. You need to pay Rs 565 to buy the subscription for the entire World Cup matches.
Additionally, Dish Home has also begun its “#FeeltheMagicofFootballinDishHome” campaign. The company is giving away many gifts in its social media campaigns.
To participate, you need to go to Dish Home’s Facebook page and write #MagicalMomentsof … (followed by the name of your favorite team). You also need to post a video that fits the phrase to stand a chance for prizes.

How does 2K compare with a regular HD channel?
2K is an upgrade from the regular Full HD (1080p) resolution offering highly detailed images. 2K resolution packs 2048 pixels horizontally against 1920 of Full HD. The more pixels on a frame, the crispier and sharper the picture quality. To illustrate how resolution types differ, take a look at the table below.

Most IPTV providers offer HD quality service in HD Ready or Full HD. 2K is an incremental upgrade over the traditional FHD resolution. Broadcasters have even started 4K services in other countries. So, we may count on it for the next edition of the FIFA World Cup.
2K World Cup broadcast available on a select Dish Home STBs
Given the high resolution and technicalities, the 2K quality World Cup matches are available on select STBs. As per the company, the high-res content is available on two types of STBs – DH-HD-0290, and DH-HD-0292. Viewers with compatible STBs can watch the match with extra pixels on Himalaya PREMIUM TV channel number 981.
