    Hmmm. Now I may have to replace my Roku Premier with an Ultra?!!!

    Any other free UHD available via Roku?

    Then again, maybe I should see if my Sony will pick it up directly.

    I think your Premier will get the 4K just fine, just no HDR. If you have the Premier+ or the Ultra you get the HDR. You can try to add the channel and see what you get.

    I think it’s a +. Gotta check.

    But first let me see what the TV will pick up.

    Well, it’s actually the Sony BD player. Found NASA first 4K “live” from space. So far, not impressed.

    But there does seem to be a wide selection in Amazon Prime. Free, even.

    The Red Sea looks pretty good.

    That is not the same thing as this channel.

    Is it really a channel or still just a semi-random collection of clips as it was at launch?

    It would appear to be clips. I doubt that they would want anything live. Whatever it is I like it.

    Looking a little further, they have the ability to go live.

    There's no doubt that it is cool and the non-linear thing works well for streamers but I was hoping that there was something that could be marketed as a real TV channel to try to save UHD from obscurity.
