Fox sports is almost certainly not producing a 4K version without HDR, so I would be very surprised if that’s the case.
The feed on the Fox Sports app is SDR...
That’s the point. Maybe Fox is stripping the HDR for their app and DISH is using that feed.It doesn’t support HLG HDR so it can’t be shown that way.
Since I recorded the game on my Hopper3 I tested your suggestion of changing the Color Space from Auto to BT.2020 on my Sony XBR-65X900E TV. You are correct. The colors become more intense and vibrant. In fact the colors of the 4K game match the Fox OTA channel. I agree that Fox Sports is broadcasting HDR that Direct TV uses but Dish has removed the HDR.I have the 75 inch version of the x900E and also a couple of 65 inch versions of the x900f. When connected to either the Hopper or 4K Joey, I have to go into the TV's picture settings and change the color space to BT.2020. Once I do this, the colors are then perfect. I don't know why Dish isn't sending the signal to change the color space, but it's clearly required since otherwise the picture is very gray and washed out even though it's extremely sharp. Changing to BT.2020 manually solves this issue for the Dish 4K channel. Hope this helps.

I found an article that describes conversion of HDR to SDR. [Video] HDR > SDR conversion for TVs not compatible with HDRAs I mentioned in the other thread, Dish is either stripping the HDR data out of the 4K signal entirely or is doing an HDR -> SDR conversion. I will try what vipul128 has suggested, which if true implies that the HDR metadata is being stripped out but that the color space is incorrectly being flagged as BT.709 when it should be BT.2020. Again, assuming this is because the 4K Joey does not support HDR for whatever reason, and I guess maybe for people who had older/cheaper 4K TVs that don’t support HDR (Hopper 3 can’t do the conversion?)
I leave the color space set on my Sony TV set at BT.2020 instead of the default of Auto. It has no affect on the normal Dish HD channels.I assume I would need to set it back to the other color space going back to the regular HD channels or they will look off?
My LG OLED C8 is on BT.2020. Colors are washed out and look terrible.BJF, did you try to adjust the color space to correct the colors. Adjusting the color space to BT.2020 fixed the colors for several of us.

DD5.1 is just fine on DIRECTV's 4K channel for the game, so it's something on Dish's end causing the problem, not FOX.In addition, the Dolby 5.1 mix is totally wrong as well. The announcers are mixed into the the L and R channels and the center channel has no discernible audio.
Yes, I checked it out. Looks pretty good.A few ifs: If you have a 4K Roku or 4K Fire Stick and if you have the Fox Sports app loaded on either you can get this game in 4K HDR10 using your DISH credential. It does look pretty good!
