Ultra HDTV owners, rejoice. So long as you have DirecTV, Dish Network, or Comcast, you will be able to watch 83 hours of NBC Olympics coverage in 4K Ultra HD.

There’s just one catch: it won’t be live.

4K offerings will include the Opening Ceremonies and Closing Ceremonies as well as events such as swimming, track & field, basketball, and judo. The ceremonies will be presented on 2.5-hour delay while the sporting events will be on one-day delay. The coverage will also include footage shot around Rio.

Ultra HD programming will be available on DirecTV, Dish Network, and Comcast starting August 6 through August 22.

DirecTV users will need the Ultimate programming package (or higher). Dish customers need a Hopper 3 DVR or and 4K Joey set-top, and Comcast coverage will be available only through Samsung or LG Ultra HDTVs via the Xfinity Ultra High Definition Sampler app.

There will probably come a day with Ultra HD is commonplace but for now is remains somewhat niche. Six million Ultra HDTVs shipped in North America last year and that number is expected to double by the end of 2016.
