    NASCAR in 4K on DIRECTV

    From DIRECTV to Air First NASCAR Race In 4K The TV Answer Man!

    DIRECTV next month will air the first NASCAR race ever in 4K, the satcaster has disclosed at its web site.

    The race, the Monster Energy Cup from Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia, will take place April 2, starting at 2 p.m. ET. DIRECTV will air the 4K broadcast on its live 4K channel, channel 106.
    Content starting to dribble out. Really thought ESPN would have been sooner with a full time 4K channel but hell even Fox, the 720P folks are starting to get on board with 4K.

    I thought Daytona would be the first track to be in 4K.

    Probably too many cameras to cover 2.5 miles vs Martinsville at .5 miles.

    I may go and see it in better than 4K. All depends how motivated I am Sunday morning.

    Sweet! Not sure Martinsville was the best place to pick first but I'll take it.

    They did Daytona in IMAX. I wish I had seen that.

    I really wish they would bring back hotpass. I miss being able to listen to the radio feeds in sync with the broadcast.

    I love short track! Way more fun than super speedway.
