    I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's a DirecTv issue.

    A user watching on altice north/ optimum said their 4k feed has no live audio either . .. must be the way fox is sending the 4k feed

    Yes, I agree with you... DirecTV cannot think people are going to watch the games without audio commentary, even in 4K HDR.... Does not make any sense !

    I spent 20 minutes troubleshooting my audio system thinking it was not properly outputting the 5.1 Dolby.... Then I came here and was relieved to read I was not alone....

    It's not a D* issue...

    Re: World Cup in 4k on optimum - schedule/topic - OptimumOnline | DSLReports Forums

    ...
    Now that's it's a commercial on local fox... I notice different graphics on screen so I'm guessing this (4k) is the live feed

    Before each station inserts there own audio etc ..

    Again just guessing

    I do not have 4k so I can not try this.
    What does it show when you go to Info, up to the bar and slide over to where it tells resolution and sound ?
    Did you try turning DD OFF in the receiver ?

    It says English Dolby Atmos (no other options )

    Again I doubt it's a setting issue cause a user with another tv provider said the same thing ...

    I did turn DD off to test your theory but same issue . .

    This is a broadcast issue

    I think for Olympics 4k nbc had different commentary on 4k feed

    Thank God no commentary. Especially no JP Dellacamera or Alexi Lalas polluting my ears.

    Unable to record a Season Pass on 106 for all WC matches. Only Fox Network games show in upcoming events on the C61K.

    Brand new VPL-VW285es. Just hit 60 hours on it today. I have an 4K mini set for install in the morning. Just in time for soccer and golf!

    I'm also having the first of both knees replaced on Monday, so I'll be all set for recovery in my theater room for the rest of the year.

    Naw they can leave the commentary off. Or at least use the BBC commentary if they want to add any. At least then we'll have actual people who can call a game properly and not idiots like Lalas who needs to shut up.

    How about a SAP brocast so we can take our pick?

    RecoverASAP! With the VPL-VW285es you brought the outdoor in.
    Nothing can be better than watching sports on big screen. I seat 10 feet away from my 10 feet PJ screen. I kind of liked stadium only sound today. You feel you are almost there. I wish we can have a choice to keep it with optional second Audio Programming without commentary like richall01 suggested.

    Great idea. I liked the sound effect from the foot hitting the ball. I have seen hockey clips with the sounds of bodies boarding hard against the glass and the puck and sticks hitting the board with terrifying speed. It was incredible. No need for commentary there.
