    Does anyone know if the Daytona 500 or other nascar races will be in 4K? Have been in previous years on DTV and I think Dish?

    It would be AWESOME if they would, but there haven't been any indicators so far. There hasn't been any 4K NASCAR on Dish to date. :(

    I have a Vizio 4K TV, but it is not HDR Supported. One of main reasons why I did not upgrade to the 4K Joey, and the other reason is because there are not too many channels on 4K on the Dish Channel Lineups.

    Yeah there is, the networks aren't supporting it, it's that simple. Would I like to see it in 4K, hell yes, but it would have to be on something other than OTA because OTA can't support 4K at this time, maybe later...

    Well, ESPN could bid for the rights to the Super Bowl, but then just imagine how much more expensive ESPN would be year-round, whether you watch football or not. :eeek

    They could bid on it but right now they would have to air it on ABC stations (they already do that) or get destroyed by making it a PPV event.

    I’ve recorded the same the same game in 4K and HD.

    I see a huge difference on my projector.

    What do people think about how they split the screen into 4 sections with 2 smaller screen on the right showing the coaches and a scoring bar on the bottom.

    I don’t like it, and I’m watching it on a 126 inch screen.

    I agree with you. I don’t need to see the coaches. I would rather have a larger view of the player action. I enjoyed the half time show with their jumping skills. Again I wish they would zoom in on the entertainers instead of taking up 2/3 of the screen with the crowd. It seems like they don’t know how to frame correctly. I would rather see a closeup of the half time show without the crowd.

    I compared the 1080i broadcast on FoxS1 channel 150 with the 4K broadcast on 540-01 on my Sony XBR-65X900E television. From my recliner which is 15 feet away I notice very little difference. When I get close to the television the differences become obvious.

    I’m sitting about ten feet from my screen and 4K makes a big difference.

    Yes with a 126 inch screen and 10 foot away the differences would be much greater than my 65 inch screen at 15 foot.

    My observation has been that FOX is the only network doing 4K, as in the MLB playoffs, college basketball, college football all were on FOX or FOX affiliates (FS1, FS2 or FOX Sports channels.

    I am looking at it and it is not HDR, just 4K.
