Thanks, looks like direct TV will have it.. upscale obviously isn't as good but would think Comcast would at least carry the upscale as they have with other college games. We will see i guess

They had a deal with Fox for broadcasting football in 4K at the beginning of the season but it never happened and the deal fell apart.

Yes 4K UHD via Comcast xfinity.

 

While you can't record this 4K UHD stream like you can the Fox Broadcast channel(s) in your guide. You can watch in 4K UHD.

 

Press the xfinity button, select Sports, and then NFL. It will be listed in the Upcomming list along with the Fox Broadcast channels (English / Spanish).

 

Just return to this listing on Sunday night anytime between 1 - 6 PM EST! ( you can also set a reminder). Just say 4K using your voice remote as a shortcut.

 

Note: This is the same way that Comcast has shown select College Football Games, Soccer, and College Basketball as described here: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/uhd-4k-faqs

Will the 4k feed be in High Dynamic Range, or in SDR?

I spoke to a Comcast rep, and they confirmed the game will be in UHD/HDR. Thanks James!

The post above only mentions UHD, not HDR. Do you know if HDR will be available?

The latest wording on the page only states "UHD", not HDR. Can someone confirm if it will definitely be in an HDR format?
