Fox this weekend will also begin its 4K HDR coverage of the 2021-22 college basketball season with one game on Saturday, one on Sunday and two on Martin Luther King Day on Monday. See this article for more details.
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.
