You and Your Puny 1080p August 2, 2016

So you’ve been putting off getting that 4K television, rationalizing that there’s not that much content, and 1080p is still pretty darn good, isn’t it?

Well I hate to burst your complacent bubble, but you’re the reason our country is becoming a second-class viewing nation. Just look at what the Japanese are up to:

Japan has begun broadcasting TV in 8K resolution ahead of the Olympics starting in Rio de Janeiro this weekend.

A satellite channel debuted by the country’s public broadcaster NHK will be showing a heady blend of 4K and 8K programming, with most of this week’s schedule focusing on the Olympics, as well as music and arts shows. 8K pumps image resolution up to a whopping 7,680×4,320 pixels, roughly four times more detail than 4K, also known as ultra high definition.

You’re now two generations behind the Japanese. I think you know what you’ve got to do.

I bought a 4k tv last year. I think the only time I’ve used the 4k capability is on Netflix. I even bought a 4k blu ray player to go with it, but I don’t remember ever using a 4k blu ray in it.
