I bought a Sony XBR850A with the FMPX10 when they hit the market, but now I'm considering buying another Samsung, which I've always owned. I bought the Sony because of the content I could get from the media player, but now I feel like I got the shift because the TV itself won't play 4K video without the media player, so I don't even have access to Amazon's streaming 4K video because they've only rolled it out to the 850B and other sets that have the codec built-in. Now, DIRECTV, which I have, is rolling out 4K video to sets that have the built-in RVU technology, which is Samsung. I have another Samsung TV, a 1080P, which has the built-in RVU technology (basically has a DIRECTV receiver built into the TV) but this is necessary if you want to view 4K content through DIRECTV. Right now, content is king, and every manufacturer is trying to hoard 4K content of some type unless you buy their hardware, which sucks. Samsung is now pushing their SUHD display. I heard that some of LG's TVs will work with DIRECTV, but I've never owned on LG TV. I wish the entire industry would collaborate together when it comes to content instead of trying to keep what they have exclusive and try using it as leverage to buy their sets. If the industry would work together on this, we would all have access to tons if content and all manufacturers would benefit because the demand for 4K sets would increase proportionally.
Does anyone on this forum own more 4K TVs than just Sony, which is what this thread is dedicated to? By the way, is there a thread dedicated strictly to 4K content and providers?
