4k channels on Rogers TV

I will be getting my Rogers 4k box set up in a few days and was wondering..
is there any channels that are 4k without paying for a package?

Also is there any special shows/sports that are broadcast in 4k on fox or whatever channel?
What channels do you guys watch in 4k?

kudos in advance

I have the 4K theme pack which is $10/mo but is free for the first 12 months. I get 2 Sportsnet channels, 2 TSN channels, 2 music video/concert channels, and a 4K preview channel. The only thing worth watching now is Jays home games which are broadcast in 4K on one of the Sportsnet channels (I think 998). Pretty much everything else that airs on the Sportsnet 4K channels is not 4K at all. The 2 TSN 4K channels are currently off the air but that should change once the NHL and NBA seasons start.

Anyone else seeing the TSN 4K channels off air? It's been like this for a while. Does Rogers plan to enable these channels anytime soon? A bit disappointed to find that these channels are off air.

I worked for Rogers. The 4K package is a TOTAL RIPOFF. ONLY a handful of channels and word from my ex-colleagues that are still there ... Rogers is not putting much into advancing 4K ... they are moving over to IPTV which will be launched later in 2018 (currently they have employees testing the IPTV)

Here's a LINK to Rogers 4K Channels (6 TV Channels and 3 Music Channels) ... so you are paying a premium for NOTHING ...

I was going to get the 4K box but it is pretty useless right now. Will wait for IPTV box.

The 4K package should be free for one year.

They only come on air when there is a game that's available in 4K. The Sportsnet 4K channels are always on air but most of their programming is not actually 4K (only select games are).

It should be free period. Charging $7.99 a month (after the 1 year.) for these channels is a complete ripoff imho.
