Next Saturday, DIRECTV will air the the Stanford-Notre Dame game at 7:30 p.m. ET in 4K on channel 106. The game will be in HDR (High Dynamic Range), which can add realism and vividness to the 4K picture.

If you’re not a satellite subscriber, you could get a free seven-day trial at fubo TV, the live streaming service which will also show tonight’s Penn State-Illinois game in 4K. Once the free trial expires, fubo’s monthly subscription for 70+ channels is $44.99. However, you can cancel at any time.

Happy Viewing!
