Re: Super Bowl in 4K

The game is shot in 1080P, so no one has it as 4K.  If there is a 4K signal coming to anyone, it's an upconvert and not native.

...only 50,000 viewers would have the necessary equipment to consume the Super Bowl in UHD compared to the more than one hundred million viewers who would see standard high-definition.

The only times that TSN or SN provide 4K programming is when they shoot/produce it themselves, like Jays home games, etc.

 

I find the wording of the Fox article to be intentionally misleading...
