Will Dish Show Big East, Big Ten Tournaments In 4K?

Q. I read your articles about DIRECTV and fuboTV offering the Big East and Big Ten basketball tournaments in 4K. But what about Dish? They have live stuff in 4K, too. — Daniel, Bangor, Maine. 

Daniel, you’re right. DIRECTV and fuboTV, the live streaming service, has said they will provide a 4K feed of both the Big East and Big Ten college basketball tournaments, which begin next week.

So what about Dish, you ask?

Dish, the nation’s second largest satellite TV service, says it will offer every game of the Big East tournament in 4K except for the final game. (The games will be simulcast in high-def on Fox Sports 1.) As for the Big Ten tournament, Dish says it’s not ready to say.

(Note: Dish says the Big East games will be in 4K HDR, which means you will need a 4K TV with HDR compatibility as well as a Hopper 3 Dish set-top to view it.)

Daniel, hope that helps. And if you need more information about the 4K coverage from DIRECTV and fuboTV, you can click this article or this one.
