Q. I remember that DIRECTV had some college football games in 4K last season. Will they do that again this year? The games look great on my Vizio 65-inch 4K TV. — Eddie, Omaha.

Eddie, you are right. DIRECTV and Fox Sports last season teamed to offer 4K broadcasts of several college football games on the satcaster’s live 4K channel, which is channel 106.

And this year the two companies are joining again to deliver more college gridiron action in the new picture format, starting with the August 31 contest between San Diego State and Stanford at 9 p.m. ET.

DIRECTV has not yet released its 4K schedule for the entire 2018 college football season so we will provide updates when it does.

Speaking of 4K and sports, the satellite TV service will also air two English Premier Soccer League games in the next week or so:

August 18 – Chelsea v. Arsenal, 12:30 pm ET on ch. 106
August 27– Manchester United v. Tottenham, 3 pm ET on ch. 106

And on August 21, DIRECTV will air the Cleveland Indians-Boston Red Sox game in 4K at 7 p.m. ET, also on channel 106.

Happy viewing!
