Do the ESPN Apps Stream the Game In 4K?
The ESPN apps, including ESPN+, do not offer 4K yet. The pay TV providers are your only sources for ESPN in 4K.
Does Fox Have 4K Games This Week?
Fox, which normally offers two college football games each Saturday during the regular season, has yet to announce any games for this weekend. We will update this article if we get more information.
