    In Throwback Thursday, we're looking back at the articles we're most proud of from the first ten years of The Solid Signal Blog, as well as other old stuff we think is super-neato.

    Back in 2007, HD was a curiosity. DIRECTV had about six national HD channels and a decent sized (37") ...

    DISH is getting into the 4K game at long last with a full-time channel for Hopper 3 and its 4K Joey clients. DISH channel 540 will be carrying 4K on Saturdays all season with college football that you won't see in 4K anywhere else. They also say this is the beginning of something big, and that they'll be showing 4K baseball and other sports throughout the year.

    DISH has been slower to adopt 4K than DIRECTV, instead relying on the Hopper's ability to connect to Netflix for the bulk of its 4K options. This could be the beginning of an industry-wide adoption of 4K, which would be a long time coming.

    And for you press release fans, you know I wouldn't leave you out in the cold:

    DISH now delivering select college football games from FOX Sports in 4K.

    September 21, 2017 09:01 AM Eastern Daylight Time
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DISH today announced that it will deliver select college football games from FOX Sports’ FS1 in 4K, beginning with the Oklahoma-Baylor matchup on Saturday, September 23 at 6:30 p.m. ET. Games will be simulcast in the pixel-packed format every weekend on DISH channel 540 throughout football season for Hopper 3 customers.

    “DISH has offered 4K-ready set-top boxes for three years, and 4K TV market share is anticipated to exceed one-in-four U.S. households by the end of 2017,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH executive vice president and chief technology officer. “The missing element? 4K programming. That’s why it’s great to see forward-looking companies like FOX invest in 4K production, so together we can deliver live entertainment in crystal-clear resolution.”

    This move is part of a broader agreement that includes future 4K coverage of college basketball games, Major League Baseball and NASCAR racing.

    DISH offers a slate of 4K programming from NBCUniversal, Netflix, The Orchard and Mance Media. The company has also delivered special 4K broadcasts throughout the past year, including a live PPV broadcast of Bellator NYC: Sonnen vs. Silva mixed martial arts fight, Planet Earth II, and NBC’s coverage of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad from Rio de Janeiro.

    Don't you hate when you're in a sports bar and you can't get the game you want? Or if you're in a restaurant and the channel selection is positively obnoxious? You ask someone to change the channel, but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen. ...

    Well yes and no. DIRECTV NOW is the streaming service from AT&T that offers live TV without a contract. It has more channels at a better price than any of the other services, offers more local TV than anyone and is available on almost every phone, tablet and streaming device.

    But, it's different from DIRECTV Satellite, which is the service that about 24 million Americans know and love. If you truly wanted both, you would have to pay for both.

    Except, it's hard to understand why you would want both. Because, if you have DIRECTV Satellite, you have access to the award-winning DIRECTV app for phones and tablets, which features well over 100 live streaming channels plus access to the same on-demand library as DIRECTV NOW. It also gives you the ability to access your DVR's programming from anywhere and even schedule future recordings. So, with all that, why would you pay for an additional DIRECTV NOW subscription?

    If you're interested in getting DIRECTV Satellite -or- DIRECTV NOW, give us a call at Solid Signal at 877.312.4547 and we can help you decide which service is best for you!

    Your TV's mounted on the wall, right? Chances are, it is. That's the whole point of a flat TV... it mounts on the wall where it stays out of the way. The problem is that sometimes cable management can be a problem. A lot of times, the HDMI ports on the back of the TV are inconvienient. ...
