    Where I see a difference on the 4K soccer on my 65" tv is when they show a closeup of the crowd or a player closeup.

    You don't have to. Just add a 4K Joey to your existing Hopper. (You are using Hopper 2, not Hopper 1, correct?) That would at least get you access to all of the regular 4K, not necessarily HDR, though.

    Dish’s broadcast of the women’s World Cup in 4K is passing stereo only. Should be full 5.1 (and can verify it is in the Fox Sports app).

    I was hoping the US Open would have been shown in 4K. Directv had it, but Dish only had soccer.

    No, at least I didn’t see it. Both games were available, in 4K, via the Fox Sports app. I used my Dish credentials in that app on my Apple TV 4K and was able to see both matches.

    I believe golf 4k events are exclusive to AT&T/DirecTV. Doesn't matter who is broadcasting fox , CBS Etc its exclusive to DirecTV. At the beginning of the 4k broadcast there is some "big wig" from AT&T talking about the exclusive event etc.

    Is there any 4k on demand?
    I thought superstore was, but don't see it now.
    I just got real internet and want to play!

    Thanks!
    Interesting to see younger in there; watching the recorded channel has been CRAP! like 1999 TV crap, fuzzy; washed out, low audio, etc. the 4K blows it away obviously!

    Any rumors on CFB this year; who may get 4k coverage? Any streaming 4K CFB out there?

    We had weekly CFB 4K games last season. I'm sure we'll see it again this year. Time will tell.....

    Today’s Met-Giants game looks very good in 4K.

    There is really no excuse why we wouldn't see a bunch more than last year, this year. A full year should yield at least 30+ games IMO and ESPN needs to jump on the wagon here. I'm tired of seeing 8K TV's advertised yet we can't hardly get any 4K content as it is...just blows my mind about how stupid they think the general public is.

    I guess that depends on the outcome of Dish's negotiations with Fox. I am not sure if FS1 is involved in this mess, but it looks like Dish might be preparing for a dispute with the Fox Regional Sports Networks, and Fox owned-and-operated broadcast TV stations, among other channels.

    Well it doesn't have to just be FOX though giving 4K content.. why can't ESPN do the same thing when they have been doing games with 4K equipment for a while now.

    And their studios are 4K as well. (And looks AMAZING) I got to see it a few times when I was there. They are just sitting on the technology!
