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.
ESPN, which does a 4K college football game on some weeks during the season, broadcasts a native 4K production. The sports network has yet to announce a 4K game for this week.
