    They finally updated on the 4K page at DirecTV for Olympic coverage......

    Can't wait to see how it turns out. Unfortunately the Super Bowl was not broadcast in 4K, but the picture on NBC was way better since they used 4K UHD cameras, downscaling to 1080i for the broadcast. It was like watching the game in 1620p, IMHO of course. The clarity was noticeable!

    Enjoy........Get your popcorn ready! Plenty of 4K hockey in there too.....

    Most NFL games are shot with 4K cameras these days, the reason the Super Bowl looked better than the rest is because the bit rate was cranked up for it on the network feed and most (all?) local stations did so as well.

    I like that it says Dolby Atmos too!! I'm really interested in seeing how that is implemented. I think something like skiing will sound awesome in Atmos.

    I was able today to compare sound on the same events. Earlier I had watched the men's and pairs short programs for the team skating event on NBCSN and just now saw it again in the 4K rebroadcast and the sound was amazing. The skaters' music just popped vs the normal hd broadcast earlier. The picture was also amazing in the 4K. Am waiting for the opening rebroadcast which will be Saturday afternoon.

    Me too- banner changed over to Dolby Audio- Atmos. I can hear the sound from the skates on the ice too, using my Onkyo TX-NR838. They seem to be doing a nice job with the sound effects on all my speakers.

    I’m really happy with my Vizio P65-E1 I got a couple weeks ago for $1198 with free shipping. The price is back up to $1598 now, and the colors are amazing after calibrating everything!

    Got some weird popping sounds on the speed skating watching in 4K with Dolby Atmos. i think it was just ambient noise from the on ice mics. Still sounded amazing though.
