List of programs on NHK 4K channel.
It covers opening ceremony, ping pong, gymnastic, judo, swimming, baseball and multiple other events.
Compared to 8K channel which covers mostly just opening ceremony judo swimming and tracks, 4K channel has much more events.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Can you translate the above schedule into English (or provide a chart in dual language) ?

Sorry, I don't speak Japanese.
The raw PDF file doesn't allow copy so I can't use Google Translate.
Here's a chart of translation for some of words in the picture.

Eurosport 4K started today.

Not sure if I need to fiddle with my set, but the 4K HDR picture is actually duller, I think this is on purpose as it shows more dynamic range? Still surprised me at the difference.

Compared to the HD, your HDR image looks a lot more natural to me, though the HD game looks like it's being played under floodlights which may account for some of the vivid colouring.

Your TV may have different/extra settings for HDR content, if so turn up the saturation/colour to make it look like the HD photo, or the opposite to the HD/SDR settings to make it look more like the HDR picture.

I had a fiddle of the settings, it's as bright as I can get it. Here it is with the same content:

I suspect the HD settings are a little blown out but don't want to fiddle with those or my partner will get upset with me :D
