The Winter Olympics in 4K and HDR: A pain in many ways, but gosh, those sparkles

We contend with limited sports, delays to watch some of the prettiest Olympics action yet.

Last week, we looked into the limited access and information for 4K Winter Olympics content in the United States—which was still confusing even one day before the opening ceremonies kicked off. This search included my own roadblocks to getting compatible service working in my home.

Since then, I’ve had 4K Olympics service installed and streaming for a few days. As such, I wanted to do my best to describe and even review the 4K content on offer. I do this for a few reasons: because 4K Olympics access is very weird this year, and because, despite some limits, it’s still one of the more interesting test cases of whether sports are the true Trojan horse for wider 4K TV adoption.
