Why no NBC Notre Dame 4K Football Games?

Are there any updates on plans to show NBC Notre Dame football in 4K? I understand that ESPN 4K rights might be tied up in contact renegotiations, but it is very concerning for us 4K enthusiasts to see that Comcast isn't showing 4K events from networks that they own. 

It'd be good to know one way or another so we can decide whether or not it makes sense to switch to a streaming TV platform like YouTube TV.

If NBC is not filming the game in 4K it can't be shown in 4K unless it upscaled that looks bad like Fox Games. I took years for HD to go widespread on the Networks even after HD TV's were released.

@dcfox NBC is filming the home Notre Dame games in 4K, and they are available in 4K from DirecTV, Fubo TV and YouTube TV.
