For Sports, the Optoma P1 performs really well! That’s until I watched a Penn State Notre Dame 1992 Orange Bowl replay on TV last night. That was pre HD, so terribly soft and low quality projected at almost 120” diagonal. No one should put bad pre-HD content on screens that large unless you are 20 feet back at least!
The very last thing I watched before writing this page, was BlackList in 4K without HDR from Amazon Prime. Lori and I always watch a couple of these episodes at a time, together. It really was an excellent picture, and for those who follow – their last episode mixed animation in with live, to complete the episode during Covid-19 lockdown.
I was most pleased when viewing the latest episodes of The Blacklist. And comparing vs other projectors, on the pilot, James Spaeder as Red, offered very good skin tones on the opening scene of the pilot in our regular image featured in many reviews.

As long as your room lighting is under decent control, you can enjoy Blacklist or that football game (or even eight football games at once) on the Optoma CinemaX P1 Laser TV.
BTW, provides throw distances up to 120”. I did not test to see if the P1 would focus on a larger screen, than 120”.
Editor’s note: For sports viewing, of course, large screens are awesome. If I can get DirecTV here next fall, I’ll be back to putting up on my 120” screen up to 8 NFL games at once, and each one will be about the size of a 27” TV and rather watchable and readable. If I can’t get a satellite dish up, I’ll be limited next year to the same 4 games max at one time. Tsk, Tsk. -art

My assorted images should give you a good idea of how much ambient light can be handled and still have a pretty great image on your screen.
