There will not be any more college football games in 4K for the rest of the season. That includes the playoff and championship games. Jim is correct, all the games that have been in 4K on Dish have been on Fox, including the baseball World Series. Dish has a contract with Fox for those games but little else.

Yeah, I just love watching the commecrcial; I gues it's for a TV; this is Bob; bob's staring at the 4k tv, bob doesn't even like sports....

So where's all this 4K programming Bob is watching?

Is there any streaming 4k live sports?

Do you remember when HGTV did a commercial free HD broadcast of the Rose Parade? This was when HD content was new. So maybe a provider will step up by next year. We can always hope.

I just got my LG 4k set 65 inch for Christmas. I still have the HWS, but I get Amazon Prime and a lot of it is in 4k. I am shocked by the quality of the picture. It is so detailed that it looks like 3D almost. I guess my next move will be a Hopper3, so I can get Dish 4k.

There is not a ton of Dish 4K available but there is some there.

Really? Let’s see, it will be televised on Fox and FS1 just like the Men’s World Cup was and that was televised in 4K. I’d say that was a pretty educated guess.
But to win the bet, there would have to be no other 4K sporting events in the meantime. Even one other 4K game between now and then, and you would lose.

Sadly, given the state of 4K on Dish, Bobby's thought probably isn't that big of a stretch. :(
Well, in the Non-Discussion thread, the longest gap between posts is only about two-and-a-half months. So, Bobby's guess that the next 4K sporting event won't be until about five months from now may be a little off. :)
