Compared the World Series broadcast on 540-01 (3840x2160 4K) with the broadcast on Fox 28 (1080i).
The colors are very similar. In the past the 4K broadcast on 540-01 had dull colors but tonight they were very close. It might be due to the night lighting. And of course the 4K broadcast is very sharp with great definition. I have not tried to see what the Fox Sports broadcast looked like on my Roku.

I got to watch my first taste of 4K on the H3 the other day for the world series. Watched about 5 minutes then had to go to bed because I get up early. I thought it looked pretty good though. My son ended up watching the whole game.

So I flipped back and forth between my hopper and Roku for the Ohio State/Nebraska game. The hopper picture on channel 540 is clear but really dark. I know the game on the Roku isn’t HDR but is it in 4K? IMO the Roku looks better than 540.

I don't believe the football game is in 4K on the Fox Sports app today although it was supposed to be. I looked at both my Roku and FireStick and neither one is badged 4K or HDR.
