Euro 2024 is – for viewers of a European persuasion at least – the first major international tournament in six years to be played in its intended slot. It's an unusual feeling, and what's stranger still is that hosts and three-time champions Germany aren't inspiring a great deal of confidence.

Instead, England, France, Spain and Portugal are being built up as the favorites. Even reigning champions Italy had to scrape through qualification, but they weren't much fancied at the last Euros either and look how that turned out. They're in Group B, Euro 2024's Group of Death, with Spain, Croatia and the unfortunate Albania.

Group A could get wild too. While Germany have been a shadow of their former selves for several years, they have home advantage and a top-tier squad. They've been grouped with Hungary, Scotland and Switzerland – three teams on the rise, sure, but none are superpowers.

Ready to sing up? Here's where to watch Euro 2024 live streams wherever you are – including free live streams.

Can you watch Euro 2024 in 4K HDR?

Sadly, Euro 2024 will not be broadcast in 4K UHD. Nor will the Champions League final, for that matter. Both events will air in 1080p HDR instead.

That's an unfortunate downgrade on where things have been headed with sport shot and broadcast in high resolution. This has been put this down to a lack of interest in 4K broadcasts and the more technically challenging set-up required.
