My wife decided to surprise me last week with a new 50 inch Hisense H50B7300UK (£299) , to replace our Sony 32 inch. After the 'man buys gadgets in this house' argument :D , The Hisense tv looks good when watching TV programmes in HD, but when watching football the pitch just appears hazy when the camera pans. I have watched a few youtube 4k clips on the TV and they do look really good.

Will I get much of an improvement if I change the TV for a slightly more expensive one (up to £100 ish) , for example a Samsung UE50RU7100KXXU at £379 ? Buy Samsung 50 Inch UE50RU7100KXXU Smart 4K HDR LED TV | Televisions | Argos

Or how much higher price wise till I start to see a difference. Is the motion rate important for me ? As Samsung use their own.

Or for the price range Im looking at , is it better to spend the extra money getting Sky Q, to get the 4K for sports ?

Appreciate any advice.

If the 4k clips you watched are of football then getting Sky Q would be the better solution.
Cheaper TVs do a poorer job than better ones at upconverting content to 4k. The faster the motion the worse it looks. Using a 4k source bypasses those circuits in the TV.
Having said that the better TV is likely to have an overall better picture but only a marginal improvement in upconverting. The bigger than screen the more you notice the flaws.

Hi American
Thank you for your info. No they weren't football clips, but i will see if there are any. Thats intetesting to know that having 4k content will look different as it bypasses any upscailing. . We have tried changing some settings on the tv to no avail. More family arguements later and I'm still unsure on spending more on a Samsung. The hisense tv says its 60ghz but the samsung says thers is 1400 pqi. Its seems genrally confusing if the samsung is a better rate ?
