82" LG. Don't get me wrong, it looked great, just not as good as the Olympics or baseball did - to me. I do think there will be varying degrees of 4k PQ, just like there is with HD, SD, etc.

No, I agree. While I enjoyed the game very much, it didn't "pop" like the Olympic broadcasts. I bounced back and forth between the normal HD feed on NBC and the difference wasn't as dramatic. Some...

Also, it's worth mentioning for the uninitiated that NBC is the exclusive home for ND home football games, so it stands to reason that they have all the 4k equipment in place following the Olympics.

I have a season recording set for ND football and it selected channel 106 for this week's game. That's the only reason I knew ahead of time. Then, over at DBS Forums, somebody pointed me to the...

FYI - Starting this Saturday against Nevada, all Notre Dame home football games will be broadcast in 4k on channel 106. So we got that going for us. Which is nice.

Interesting. I came back to D* in March because of 4K and have been nothing but pleased with the experience so far.

That's why it looked it so bad! I completely forgot ESPN did only 720p. And I thought the same thing. The transition shouldn't be as jarring once CBS takes over from ESPN tomorrow.

Depends where you live. I would never switch internet providers unless I moved to a non-FiOS area. I've had others (Comcast, RCN, TWC) and FiOS is superior in every way - especially with regards to...

FiOS PQ - Outstanding. Only DirecTV is similar.
FiOS Hardware - Dreadful. Consider a TiVo setup unless you want to pull your hair out using the FiOS Quantum DVR system.

Best of luck.

Same problem here in VHO7 with 513. Weird things also happening with WNYW 505 (Fox 5) - breakups and such. No other channels seem to be malfunctioning though.
