Dish To Present Thursday Night Football In 4K UHD
Football lovers with a 4K Ultra HDTV, a subscription to FOX through the Dish direct-to-home satellite/IPTV service and a Hopper 3 DVR/IRD will be able to see the NFL’s Thursday Night Football games in 4K clarity for the remainder of the season.
The first of the FOX/Dish 4K NFL Thursday Night Football games will be telecast in native 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels) on Dish channel 540 starting at 8:20 p.m. EST, Thursday (Oct. 24th), the satellite TV provider announced Wednesday.
Customers with a Hopper 3 can tune in to watch the Washington Redskins take on the Minnesota Vikings at that time.
This content will be delivered in 4K standard dynamic range (SDR). There are no announced plans for high dynamic range (HDR) enhancement at this time.
According to a Dish representative, “To view, customers will simply need a Hopper 3 and a 4K TV. There is no required subscription to view 4K content, customers would just need to subscribe to FOX.”
