    Is the Superbowl going to be carried on Dish in 4K, either on one of the two 4K channels or thru my "locals" package on the Fox channel, Ch 57 in Columbia, SC??
    I have a new Samsung 82 inch 80 series 4K TV and would like to see it in 4K!!

    Yes. Channel 540-1 (non-HDR).

    Unless your local FOX station has been removed. Then you are SOL for 4K as it is blocked. Have the OTA module so all is not lost. However, I did so want to see it in 4K.

    I was wondering this myself (out of curiosity). I guess if your local Fox is blocked they can’t legally carry the 4K version. But I’ve seen nationals or adjacent market channels put in place when such disputes are going on in the past. Strange they can’t do that now.

    The local Fox has the rights to the game. If they want you to watch their commercials instead of the national 1080p/4K feed they can block the feed.

    I got it to work when I punched in directly to 540-01. However you think it would show the 1080P version on the Joeys. Especially since the Joeys can do 1080P. But they have an info channel saying that it’s only on the Hopper. Fox still uses 720P signals. They haven’t blocked my market.

    Only a 4K Joey can display channel 540-1, all other Joeys jump to 538 info channel.

    Yep. That’s what’s happening.
