We've had lots of individual threads for 4K events, let's consolidate the 4K events discussion to one sticky thread.

Here is the link to the DirecTV 4K Sports Events Schedule:

Very disappointing that so far no word on the NFL Super Bowl being in 4k.
Also, the College Football Playoffs appear to NOT be available in 4K

2 MAJOR events that are being missed.

Fox has announced it will be producing the next Super Bowl in 4k. They will be 'streaming' the game according to an interview. No word on whether the game will be delivered in any other way so far.

The other day Fox reported that the Super Bowl will at least be streamed in 4k. Not sure if it’ll be on Directv though.

Not sure if the entire college football playoffs will be in 4k, but ESPN will have the national championship game in 4k. Their broadcasts are native 4k and have looked amazing!

Wouldn't you think they would be talking about it by now if it was ?

You would hope they would be proclaiming it to everyone.

Glad to hear the Super Bowl will be ... hopefully it won't be streaming only.

You would think but even when they announced 4k college football games, it was pretty last minute. And several of their 4k college football games were not announced until a few days before.

Sugar Bowl will be in native 4k on ESPN according to this press release. It was previously announced that the national championship will be in 4k but it’s not in this press release. It says more info about that game will be announced after the bowl games.

Well, I am not home ...
Is the Super Bowl in 4k on D* today on 105 ?

If so, hows it look ?

I went to the D* website to set up a Recording ... but the guide didn't show the game on any of the 4k channels ... said something like Programming unknown.

I watched it on 105 last night, picture was pretty good, similar to the Thursday Night games. Can't distinguish it as 4K, not eye-popping so to speak, but definitely cleaner than my local FOX station's feed. I only glanced at the local feed once, and left it on 105 and forgot about it. Enjoyed the game, it was a great one. Halftime was better than I would have expected too.
