Roger, the San Francisco 49ers will play the Philadelphia Eagles today in the NFC Championship game at 3 p.m. ET from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. The game can be seen in high-def on Fox network affiliates.

(The TV Answer Man reported in early December that Fox will do the Super Bowl in 4K on February, 12, 2023.

Note: Fox’s 4K football and basketball 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.
