I was just wondering if ever or when cox will start supporting 4k uhd content with or without hdr?
Which networks are broadcasting UHD content?
I know dish and directv have 4k content now. Dish has a 4k uhd all home dvr (the hopper 3) and directv 4k client boxes (4k geni mini). So there's got to be 4k tv channels but I just don't know which ones.
They're not "TV channels" per se. Is it on your TV? Yes. Is it UHD? Yes. However, it's DirecTV reserving 3 of their channels for UHD content. They're DirecTV-owned channels. As for the programming, I doubt it's popular or even good. It's just in the UHD format. It'd be like watching the Racewalking Channel because it's the only sport on TV.
what about dish they have to have a whole 4k package to be able to advertise the hopper 3 4k uhd all home dvr don't they?
From what I've read on Dish TV, it only offers on-demand UHD programs and its equipment is compatible with Netflix. It'd be cheaper to just stream Netflix.
I looked at the Dish site and it just reads "...on-demand movies, shows and events...live sports..." but nothing specific. No HBO, Comedy Central, CBS, etc.
These providers are only promoting and over-pricing their UHD-capable equipment, but there is nothing worth watching.
It's nice they're UHD-ready but UHD programs depend on the broadcast and cable networks.
ok well I hope there does come 4k channels and 4k tv service soon
