They did that last week as well. And according to another poster here who seems to be in a position to know, they are also upconverting all the FS1 college games as well.

this just reminds of how little 4k presence there is on cable/satellite. how long has it been since 4k was introduced? doesn't seem to be taking off

It is taking off just fine, just not on Traditional Providers, but in their defense it is hard to carry programing if Broadcasters do not offer it

The past, present and future of 4K is online with Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, itunes and soon Disney+ and even some programming on Hulu is in 4K ( must have a Apple TV ).

Cable and say can’t deliver something that’s not there. They need the content providers to offer 4K channels that they can distribute. DIRECTV has a bunch of bandwidth available to carry 4K channels when they become available. BTW I don’t count those channels out there that nobody has heard of.

Fox couldn't worry about getting a 4k HDR signal out that everyone could use. They were busy making commercials and having their studio crews complain about the Dish dispute. :cool:

The broadcast was amazing for me via DirecTV genie 2

I only use chromecast I dont use any of those other streaming things as I'm not a cord cutter and dont see a need for it .

And as I said above it was working fine via the TV provider (s). I dont see or get all the negative energy on the streaming devices .

I thought the games (NFL and the Notre Dame game on Sat) were very glitchy ....
Looked good, but the artifacts were bad.

exactamundo. all the players have to get together to make it work. i just wonder how long it will take, if ever, to gain as much traction as regular HD has. i think regular HD works very well for most people.
