Fox tomorrow night (November 27) will stream the Notre Dame-Stanford college football game in 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range). The contest, which begins at 8 p.m. ET, can be watched in 4K HDR on the Fox Sports app by using your TV Everywhere user name and password from your pay TV provider.
Fifth ranked Notre Dame enters the game with a 10-1 record while the Stanford Cardinal is 3-8.
Fox earlier in the week announced it will also stream the Ohio State-Michigan game in 4K HDR, beginning at noon ET on Saturday from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Ohio State, which is ranked second in the nation, enters the matchup with a 10-1 record and an eight-point favorite over sixth-ranked Michigan which is also 10-1.
The pay TV services that are expected to carry both games on special 4K channels are DIRECTV, Dish, Comcast, Verizon, Optimum, YouTube TV, and FuboTV. (In markets where the Fox affiliate is provided with your programming package.) Check your on-screen guide for more details.
The network will simulcast both 4K games in HD on Fox network affiliates.
Note: Fox’s 4K broadcasts are upscaled from 1080p HDR. Upscaling is the process when one video format is converted to another. Fox takes the 1080p HDR signal and converts it to a 4K format. Upscaling 4K is not considered as good as native 4K, but the inclusion of HDR can offer heightened colors and vividness.
