The fuboTV would be a good option except they have no ESPN channels.


Does DirecTV still require a certain receiver to get 4k programming?

Its highly likely the games will be 4k on the Fox Sports app with any valid cable/DBS login on at least some devices. The women's world cup was, and the occasional MLB game are right now for me with a DTV login (of which I don't pay for 4k service).

Optimum has added the same CFB and NFL games as the Fubo list, but only until October 31. No EPL games listed.

Are the NFL games in 4K just on the Fubo app? Or will DirecTV have them too?

Although not officially announced , DirecTV does have an agreement with FOX Sports for 4K programming.

Also , although not directly related , Att/DirecTV is the exclusive provider for NFL Sunday Ticket so one would assume they would have the games in 4k.

We will officially know in September but I dont see why DirecTV wouldn't.



Also altice and fubo have already officially posted that they will carry the games in 4K

If you are watching the game in 4K do you still get the bug pop up?

question for those with the FuboTV service. are there any Samsung Galaxy/Note owners? curious if the phone apps have a stretch to zoom option to fill the screen. youtube TV does not allow you to stretch to zoom on the taller aspect phones.

No ESPN/ABC is a bummer. luckily with The Espn+ app, it's an option.

anyone know if ESPN+ has launched yet or if they have 4k yet?

In the past 2 years I have not noticed any 4K broadcast from ABC/Disney , but I could be wrong.


I believe espn is investing in the espn+ and not doing 4K yet.
Opposite of the past as ESPN was one of the first 3D channels

Also keep in mind that the ESPN+ app provides supplementary content to the main ESPN channel. It's no substitute for the main events you'll see on ESPN. Otherwise it would be a lot more than $5 per month.

I could see Disney+ acting as the delivery mechanism for future potential 4K ESPN broadcasts. Sure, ESPN has an app/site for cable subs to enter their provider credentials to access live content, but I could totally see them 'encourage' people who are cable subs (and thus have access to ESPN) to sub to Disney+ by offering 4K HDR broadcasts of live content exclusively via Disney+.

Also, has anyone seen a 'Fox 4K' (https://support.fubo.tv/hc/en-us/art...HDR-on-fuboTV-) broadcast before? Can it be accessed strictly with provider credentials via Fox's app? Are these broadcasts also in HDR?

Thanks,

If you mean a subscription to BOTH, then yeah, that's a possibility. I think, legally, they couldn't do an exclusive. It'd probably have to also be made available to D*, E*, Xfinity and any other MPVD with an ESPN carriage deal and some sort of 4K platform.

Except we're seeing instances, such as with Fios, where Verizon isn't able to carry 4K content but they carry the regular HD content. To me it seems 4K isn't necessarily included with existing deals.

And what I'm postulating wouldn't cost anything extra for Disney+ subscribers. It's just a sweetener for subscribers who have Disney+ AND a traditional TV subscription (this particular customer group yields Disney the most profit btw, vs. a YouTube TV subscriber) to get them behaviorally accustom to watching live 4K content on Disney's app instead of through their set top box.

Then where's the money for the production upcharge?

So what’s the deal with Fios then? And they have the infrastructure in place for doing one off 4K broadcasts for programs such as Saturday night college football, with upscaling the commercials.

I would imagine FS1's 4K telecasts are available to FiOS, but they've opted to skip it or don't have the necessary infrastructure to pull it off. I'd have to ask. What commercials would they be upscaling? All the FS1 inventory should arrive already-upscaled. I guess there are cable avails. Yeah, they'd need to either have the gear to do those insertions or just run the cover content.

Did a little more research on the Disney+ idea.. it's the charge for Disney+ that's the bugaboo in it all. If Disney wanted to do a one-off ESPN 4K, it would have to be available to all of its customers (MPVDs) on equal footing. I.E. If there's an upcharge, then all MPVDs who opt to carry it would charge the same, splitting the proceeds with Disney. This is much like a lot of the ESPN PPV events or the now-defunct GamePlan.

Two things Disney could do is 1) Run ESPN+ content in 4K, which wouldn't run afoul of their existing Family-of-ESPN carriage agreements or the 1992 Cable Act OR 2) put the 4K ESPN content on WatchESPN, then allow MPVDs to tier that (it ain't gonna be free). This is the best option as it makes money for everyone involved and would still permit DSS to run a linear feed at the same price.

Were Disney to try splitting off a 4K simulcast of an ESPN event exclusively for Disney+ (even with a required cable login), it would make for an interesting court case, testing the 1992 law on satellite-delivered cable networks.

It'd also be bad-business to tell someone such as Comcast, which HAS 4K capabilities through Xfinity, "Sorry, you can't have this. We're keeping it for ourselves along with the monthly fees." And imagine the outrage cable subscribers, who already complain about high prices, would have at having to pay someone ELSE to get the same content in a little better quality. Lose-Lose.

I don't see it happening, but never-say-never.
