    Not that it makes a difference. But the Roku is about 30 seconds to a minute behind the Dish broadcast. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    For me, the Dish 4K is very clear pixel wise. But for some reason it looks really dark. So for my tv the regular Dish Fox channel looks better than the Dish 4K channel. But I feel my Roku Ultra picture is the better of the three. Although not by a huge margin.

    I’m having the opposite experience. When my tv detects HDR the backlight and contrast settings automatically max out on my tv. They don’t do that with just 4K. So I’m guessing that’s why the app looks better to me.

    Well the 4K channel is now live. I don’t understand why the 4K channel takes all of the pop out of the picture. It’s so much darker than the regular Fox channel.

    Does the Fox Sports app not show the replays in 4K? I found the Illinois vs Michigan game from earlier today and the replay isn’t in 4K.

    Cord Cutting - which box? Some comparisons

    Well I have an antenna. You’re saying my OTA picture will look better than the Roku Fox Sports app in 4K?

    Cord Cutting - which box? Some comparisons

    So I picked up the Roku Ultra today. I haven’t been able to spend too much time playing around with it yet. But I know the Fox Sports app has some games in 4K. But my question is how do you know which games are in 4K? I only spent a few minutes on it but I didn’t see anything that told me if it...

    Does anyone know if they show the commercials when streaming on the Roku? Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    Any chance Dish has the Super Bowl in 4K? I’m about to pull the trigger on a Apple TV 4K or Roku Ultra. So I’m sure I can stream the game in 4K. But would that mean I wouldn’t see the commercials? I could care less personally but that’s the only reason my wife will watch it.

    I just recently subscribed to Amazon Prime so I don’t have much history with it. But I’ve been underwhelmed with it on my H3. The picture is clear, but really dark on the HDR programs I’ve watched. I don’t have an Apple TV4K or Roku 4K yet to compare it to. But it looks much better using the app...

    Cord Cutting - which box? Some comparisons

    I agree completely. I hate watching repeats of any show. With the possible exception of Seinfeld and Big Bang Theory. But even those shows I don’t really care about. Those just happen to be the shows that I’ll turn on if I can’t find anything else to watch that I haven’t already seen. Now my 17...

    Cord Cutting - which box? Some comparisons

    And I don’t know if it makes much difference. But we are an Apple family. We all have iPhones, iPad, and an older iMac that rarely gets used anymore. But my biggest concern is getting the best picture possible.

    Cord Cutting - which box? Some comparisons

    I noticed on Apples website that if you buy the Apple TV they give you Apple TV + free for a year. Although none of the original shows they’re offering look appealing to me personally. They’ll also ship it for free and you’ll receive the next day. As for the type of HDR. I have no idea what my...

    Cord Cutting - which box? Some comparisons

    I’ve read through this thread and it’s been very informative. I have a 4K tv capable of HDR. I’ve narrowed my choices down to the Apple TV 4K and the Roku Ultra. Which box would be the best choice for 4K programming? I subscribe to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney Plus. I realize box boxes...

    Do you have a hopper 3? I’m curious how 4K or HDR looks on the Amazon Prime app on the hopper compared to the APT or Roku. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    4K Events Discussion Thread

    That’s good to know because I was about ready to pull the trigger on a new Apple TV 4K (I have an older version Apple TV). But I want to get the best possible picture for 4K whether it’s using the Fox Sports app or Amazon Prime 4K. So it sounds like I should go with either a Roku or Firestick...

    Did you call Dish or online chat? And I wonder if Dirt can help with that?
