Scott joins Leo to talk about how to watch the Tokyo Olympics. This year, you can watch the games in 8K in Tokyo (though it's upconverted from 1080p), or if you have Comcast, you can watch it in 4K HDR through Xfinity, as well as through the NBCSports app. But only if your cable provider is a part of their network. YouTubeTV is also offering live streaming the games in 4K HDR, but you have to pay an extra $20 a month for the privilege after a free 30-day trial.  So you can do the trial, watch the games, and then cancel. Others, including NBC, are broadcasting in 1080p. In fact, even the 4K streams are upconverted from 1080p, with a few 4K streams here and there. But most of it is still just being recorded in HD.
