DIRECTV brings 4K Olympics like crazy

If you’re looking for the best Olympics coverage, AT&T wants you to know that there’s only one place to get it — DIRECTV. The satellite service is rolling out more 4K and HDR coverage than anyone else, and if you don’t believe me, take a look at this PDF. While it’s not very pretty, it shows you a massive amount of 4K content.

All the good stuff is on DIRECTV channel 106, and there’s also a dedicated Olympics Mix channel that lets you see what’s going on with all of the action on the four NBC/Universal channels that will be covering the games.

Oh heck, even if you don’t look at the PDF, here’s the same content. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, this is a lot of stuff.

OK, now that you’ve scrolled past all of that, let’s talk.

Fact is, it’s probably too late to get a 4K install from DIRECTV in time to get the Olympics, but if you don’t want to miss out next time, here’s what you’ll need from Solid Signal:

You’ll also need a 4K/HDR compatible TV that supports HDCP 2.2. Call your friends at Solid Signal at 877.312.4547 and we’ll arrange everything you need. If this is a new installation or if you need an installer to come out, we can arrange everything. If you’re just looking for parts, we can help you out with activation and support. It’s completely up to you!
