[quote=NetworkTV;25148170]Which is why I honestly would rather see better HD with the bandwidth they're giving to 4K than trying to view 4K in a wrapper that doesn't quite fit the product.

Really good HD looks great on any screen. Bit starved 4K will have the same compression artifacts and washed out visuals regardless of screen size. I'd rather a little less detail in the master than have any improvement be lost with the amount of compression they'll squeeze it all down with. What good is creating content where you can see every freckle when it's just going to get compressed into wax by the time it reaches the viewer?






In my opinion a perfect statement.

4k quality via broadcast. Bwahahahahahaha!! Who do they think they're fooling?? It'll look like crap if their current "HD" channels are any indication.

I would LOVE to see that happen.

Who would have thought that old people would be the ones ushering in high speed internet? Netflix is going to basically be forcing the USA to update it's communication systems in the coming years, it seems.
