NBC has announced that the 2016 Rio Olympics will definitely be getting a 4K UHD showcasing to at least some audiences with the ability to watch them in the resolution. The broadcaster will make content from the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro available to carriers in not just 4K resolution but also with high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound, at least for those who have 4K TVs and sound systems which support 4K itself and these new 4K-related technologies. We don’t however yet know what HDR format NBC plans on using with their Olympic sportscasts.

NBC is making 4K UHD HDR footage of the 2016 Games available for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, swimming competitions, track and field, basketball, the men’s soccer final and judo competitions via a 24 hour tape delay. Thus, while the footage made available by NBC won’t be live, its delayed version will offer a visual experience that blows live HD streaming of the Games completely out of the water in terms of overall quality.

These 4K replay sportscasts will be coming in 4K resolution thanks to NBC’s downscaling of native live 8K resolution recording footage being made of the 2016 Games by the Japanese state broadcaster NHK for the sake of the latter company’s continuing experimentation in live 8K public broadcasting in the time remaining before the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games.

After downscaling NHK’s 8K video footage of the events in Rio, NBC will then also add in high Dynamic range and Dolby Atmos sound encoding for those viewers who own the latest 4K TVs models and sound systems capable of handling both of these specs.

According to NBC Sports president Gary Zenkel, “”The Olympics have been a consistent driver of technological advancements, and Rio will be no different.”

Not a big deal has even Copa America 2016 and Euro 2016 both major football events will be telecasted in 4k HDR on Bein Sports 4K Middle East. But unfortunately I don't think Sony Six can broadcast them in 4k has they didn't launched Any 4k channel yet.  :(

why you always start comparing India with UAE,
Everyone knows they are ahead,
Also it depends on what people ready to pay,
Here most of the people watching SD channels on CRT,
If you want to compare then do with Japan or America.
