Lightbulb 4K Live Sports and Events Schedule - Updated 2/25/2020

Please Read before posting:
Technical discussions related to devices and/or displays need to go in the forum sections FOR those devices. This is a thread about 4k events only.

The moment there's an update to the chart, the thread gets rolled back

1. Super Bowl LIV in 4K now has its own thread.
College Football National Championship game discussion
2. Technical questions about streaming devices need to go in the section dedicated to those devices.


NOTE: Games broadcast by an RSN (Regional Sports Network) may be subject to local Blackout rules. If you do not live in the local DMA (Designated Market Area) of the team, an Out of market sports subscription (NBA League Pass, NHL Center Ice, MLB Extra Innings) may be required to view these games (out of market). In some cases, specifically Altitude, the 4k feed may only be available to subscribers in the DMA and unavailable outside of the DMA even with an out-of-market sports package subscription.
