Sports that are available in 4K not shown in 4K

Why when games are available in 4K are they not shown in 4K?[i.e last nights Blackhawks-Bluejackets game on NBC Sports Chicago and todays Arsenal-Manchester United game on NBC and tomorrow nights Blackhawks-Bluejackets game on NBC Sports Chicago]........I would appreciate it if you'd show games that are available in 4K in 4K.

The earliest black hawks game listed is on 2-2-2021. I saw the Soccer game you said was listed  in the 4K section after saying 4K on the remote. ths morning. I didn't watch it though. Sometimes the networks change plans. 

The Villanova game is on now in 4K at 520PM  EST.  The 4K broadcast is different then the HD channel. 

4K Sports Available on Xfinity X1

Tonights Blackhawks home game is in 4K as is every home game from now until the season ends.......if only Xfinity knew that and were to show them in 4K......I did watch the games yesterday but had to watch the Bulls game in regular HD instead of the 4K which is how it originated.[every home Bulls game originates in 4K as of now and the standard HD broadcast is a downconversion of the 4K which my 4K tv then has to reconvert to 4K]

I'm pretty sure there's only been 1 or 2 of the Blackhawks and Bulls games in 4K, even though they are supposed to do all home games. I did see part of the first Blackhawks game, but tonight's game definitely wasn't available in 4K.

 

Somebody over at avsforum said they got a hold of somebody at Comcast who said they're aware of the issue and working on fixing it.
