The 4K difference
4K resolution, also called Ultra HD, UHD, or simply 4K, refers to programming and televisions that provide a higher resolution than High Definition. 4K TVs and programming deliver roughly 4 times the number of pixels on the screen than regular HD, which results in clearer pictures. The extra pixels also allow more opportunities for nuanced colors and create a higher level of picture quality.
4K programming on DISH
Everything becomes clearer with DISH’s selection of UHD content, making it easier for you to enjoy more 4K TV programming on your Ultra HD TV. From on-demand movies, shows and events to Netflix programming, live sports, and more, DISH’s state-of-the-art 4K receivers put the highest resolution programs in your living room.
How to watch 4K with DISH
Watching programs in 4K quality requires two things – 4K TV and a source that provides content in Ultra HD. The Hopper 3 and the 4K Joey are both capable of delivering 4K resolution programs to your TV and DISH has a number of programs available in Ultra HD – both live and on-demand, with more becoming available as more networks begin releasing more 4K shows and sports. Netflix also provides a variety of shows and movies in 4K, which can be accessed directly from your Hopper.
