That's great, but it's a matter of worth while content. Especially with little people actually having a 4k display. Shows like "Betas" aren't going to entice people to adopt expensive TV's.

I'm on a 39" Seiki 4k tv that cost $449 on Amazon....there's a TCL 50" 4k tv also on Amazon that's less than $700. Cheap enough?

Why does it seem that every article that refers to UHD say that it is "more than 4 times that of HD resolution". Taking the numbers given in the above article, UHD is 3840 x 2160, or a total of 8,294,400 pixels. Actually, that is EXACTLY four times the resolution of HD's (1920 x 1080) 2,073,600 pixels. No more, no less.

I see no such things, all 4K resolution screens at least on Amazon are at the least $650 for a new non-open box TV ,still to expensive considering the the lack of current programming. You have to weight the expense with the usage which is arguably still lacking.

What sort of internet connection do you have to have for 4K streaming anyway? I can't even manage "normal" HD--not that I have a good internet connection.

If it's the true and original 4K format (4096x2160) used in digital cinema, that is actually true, however people just follow whatever what other people said and use 4K and UHD interchangeably and at same time become confused, just like this article.

In general, the term 4K shouldn't be used, it's not hard to know 3840 is not yet 4000, it should just stick the term UHD. People didn't call FHD as 2K back then, so why it's now all of sudden use the cinema format and called 4K? Only because when it was introduced there was no erroneous media use the term to tell general public, once it's stuck, it's hard to break.

"HD" is 1280x720. 1920x1080 is known as "FHD" or "Full HD". 4K is much more than 4xHD. It is exactly 4xFHD as you point out.

The Alpha wolf study was discredited as flawed science over 20 years ago and people still site it as somehow applicable to humanity. Way to be shitlords, Amazon.
