You really expect DIRECTV to keep their web site up to date?:confused: They haven't done so in the past and I wouldn't expect them to do it in the future.
No I don't. But they've updated this page all year. At the very least, give us SOMETHING. We're paying for it.

I called Directv and they don’t even know what’s coming up for live 4k. I can’t believe they don’t update that page. It’s very frustrating.

I open a chat request just to fulfill some kind of sick humor each day. These turds have no clue what's going on- you have to almost feel bad for them. "I have escalated to our internal programming team". They can never answer a direct question, just stock canned responses that help no one. My issue has been "escalated" 3 times now. I even pointed out the false advertising of 4K MLB playoffs on Facebook- literally no response to this. It's really sad that the only way to get any kind of sane, logical answer about ANYTHING, you have to call the department that handles customers who want to leave. Nice customer service. They used to be excellent.

At this point, you may be chatting with low-cost AT&T bots!

NBA is coming up though. I suspect they will add NHL later, as the Canadian providers are doing it. Too bad they couldn't order a fiber link from Rodgers Sportsnet or TSN for 4K events, or just uplink it. This is probably a contractual issue. :hungry for some hockey in 4K!
With the way most major ISPs are (I get 200Mb down) why aren't providers looking at offering 4K streaming instead? It would seem like an easier proposition to distribute. Amazon, Netflix all do it, and do it well.

Nice - DirecTV has let this lapse completely again - the page in question has no upcoming 4K.

Why are you so worried about the web site schedule? Why not just look at the guide every couple days like today to see there's a NBA game Friday at 7PM CST and Saturday a soccer match at 11:15CST. DIRECTV may honestly not know too far in advance what will be shown.
