    why doesn't dish run programs on a loop on 4k the two 4k channels. Make s few demo programs and run them when they do not have anything new to run. Would like to see what it looks like. Do they not have the capacity to do that?

    speaking of 4k programming ... how many live sports are available via DISH?
    i think they have an agreement with FOX Sports.. so i assume the NLCS is available via dish.. do they publish a schedule like D* and Optimum?

    only asking cause i do a monthly schedule on AVS forum and would love some input form a DISH user ..

    Thanks for any info ..

    No published schedule that I'm aware of. They are broadcasting college football on Saturdays. I wish they would email schedule of upcoming events.

    TitanTV is a 3rd party listings provider, they do not have listings for Dish only channels like 540-1 4K and 540-2 4KHDR. All they have is generic "Local Programming", "Informational Programming", "Sports Programming", "International Programming" and "PPV Programming" listings for the Dish only channels.

    Even MyDISH.com's online guide only has listings for a few days in advanced for these channels and not the full 2 weeks.

    Like mentioned before, Dish's schedule for their 4K channels doesn't go out that far. They only have things listed for about 3 days in advanced, anything after that is just listed as "off air" until they populate the schedule.

    The furthest thing out on the schedule as of now is Illinois @ Wisconsin on Saturday on channel 540-01 4K

    To stay up to date, enter channel "540" on the "jump to channel number" box and keep on clicking ahead to see the schedule for channels 540-01 4K and 540-02 4KHDR on mydish.com/guide.

    ok i will try to check it every few days. I also noticed an NBA 4K game on 10/30 but not sure who will be broadcasting ( Canada feed or FSN ? )

    does Dish have FSN NBA games or only FS1 programming ?

    again i dont have dish and asking to keep the Schedule on AVSforum updated and accurate.

    That's a NBA TV provided game, no idea if Dish has a 4K deal with them

    Last week there were a couple of baseball playoff games on the 4K channel. They looked quite good in 4K. Would be nice to see a couple of World Series games in 4K. But, I'm guessing Direct has them locked up. Too bad.

    My guess is they dont do world series in 4k due to ratings and advertising. I know last year fox had ALCS in 4k but not WS.

    Also fox does 4k with no commercials so hopefully in a few years we can see the big game in 4k

    And btw D* does not have WS in 4k either

    Same fS1 games in 4k are on DirecTV , Dish, fubo TV, and layer 3

    First you need a 4K TV, preferable with HDR.

    With Dish Network you need either a Hopper 3 (does 4K HDR and regular 4K) or a Hopper with Sling with a 4K Joey (only does regular 4K).

    4K Joey also works with Hopper 3 but still only does regular 4K.

    Probably need a good quality HDMI cable, nothing too expensive, look at Monoprice.com.

    Then I should be set up. The Hopper 3 will go to my Sony 4K TV and the regular Joey will go to my non-4K TV in the bedroom. I already have the HDMI cables from Monoprice.
