this upscaling bull shit plus dumping already obsolete 4k TVs on early adopters last year shows that they don't know what they're doing, or rather don't care. This will probably be a tiny niche like vinyl. Everybody just streams.
UHD is pretty much a failure because a comfortable distance to watch a TV isn't close enough to actually see the detail improvement of 4k over 1080p.
I don't care if the picture looks better when I am three feet away from the TV. I am not three feet away from the TV. I'm about seven feet away from the TV.
It's the exact same reason why 4k is worthless on phones (except when using it for VR? but you're not even going to use your TV as VR).
But then you add to the fact that there is just NO content. Even when Blu-ray came out you had the ability to remaster from film into BD which totally makes sense, but even then there's not enough detail in the film to go up further to 4k, and anything filmed digitally is stuck at the resolution it was filmed at.
>>52469389 The thing that might make me buy a 4k blu ray player (when the player and discs are cheaper and have a decent library) is that 4k discs will have an increased bitrate. I'm kind of a "videophile" and know old grainy films remasterd on blu ray looks the best when there is as much bitrate as possible on the video.
I would buy the 4k discs to watch downscaled on my 1080p TV. But there's no way I will buy the 4k version of a blu ray I already or pay over $20 for it.
