    Based on the two MLB games this week added to the schedule, is it safe to assume that Dish will be copying the 4K schedule of DirecTV?

    NBA
    10/23 – Toronto vs San Antonio, 8:30pm ET
    10/31 – Oklahoma vs Milwaukee, 8:00pm ET

    College Football
    10/14 – Baylor vs Oklahoma, 3:00 p.m. ET
    10/21 – Teams TBD, 3:30pm ET
    10/28 – Teams TBD, 3:00pm ET

    English Premier League Soccer
    10/14 – Liverpool vs Manchester United, 7:30am ET
    10/22 – Tottenham vs Liverpool, 11:00 am ET
    10/28 – Manchester United vs Tottenham, 7:30 am ET

    Considering that Dish did not have the EPL Liverpool vs Manchester United match on the 14th, I'm not so sure. We should know soon though.... ;)

    I think anything produced by Fox Sports is probably a fair assumption but anything else isn't.

    Not sure that except for a few angles that it looks that much better than regular HD.

    But the TV is reporting it as 3840x2160 / 60p.

    Do you have to subscribe to a certain package in order to have channel 540? I have H3 and a 4k TV, but cannot see channel 540 in my guide.

    I see that as well. I’m not sure all of the cameras are 4K. Shades of early HD...

    Use the 60 Hz. You'll notice the format change when you switch between 540 and other channels. Otherwise the format will stay the same.

    The baseball doesn't look as good as some of the football games where the image really popped. My guess its different cameras.

    Yes, it does! When they go to commercial and we are looking at that end shot, even the picture on the jumbotron looks spectacular...

    why does Dish/FS1 not put other events on 540 like Champions League soccer, these are broadcasted in 4K in the UK.

    Probably because there isn’t a contract for it yet. So far all we have is college football and a couple of baseball games. Give it some time...

    After the two ALCS games were broadcast I'd hoped that the World Series might also be in 4K. Even though the HD feed didn't look bad tonight I need to justify spending too much on a set.

    Hey, I spent $5,000 on my first HD set in 1998. There might have been 2 programs that looped at the time. :)

    You got off cheap. The first HD Plasma I sold (Fujitsu) was $12,999.99. Now I see little old ladies throw a 50" into their buggy and roll it to the checkout at Wal-Mart.
