Is there a specific forum on AVS where people are discussing the 4K content ? What I mean is... when 3D first hit the scenes, AVS had a specific forum for "3D Content". I haven't seen anything similar for 4K yet. So, I'm not sure where the discussions are taking place about what content is available, lack of content, etc, etc.
I used to go to the 3D Content area, and I could read a few threads here and there and be quickly up to speed about what is available in 3D, and what is good, what is just mediocre, etc, etc. With 4K, I can't seem to find where people are specifically discussing the content. Most of the discussion in this thread is more about whether or not 4K is even worth a damn.
I'm not interested in getting involved in that argument. What I am interested in, is if I did happen to jump on the 4K bandwagon, what the heck could I watch, where can I get that content, how much do I have to pay for it, etc, etc. I think this is even more important with 4K considering there isn't a 4K Blu Ray yet. We don't have any 4K content that we can purchase, and hold in our hands, and know that we can count on that particular content. It's all downloads and streaming. It's buying a particular hard drive thing that goes with a particular TV. Pay 8 bucks for 24 hours, buy the movie for 30 bucks, but you don't have a physical disk. Blah, blah.. blah.
But that's actually the discussion that I'm interested in, because I'm trying to find out if I did actually get a 4K display, what the F can I actually do with the thing. It's all pretty confusing, and I will say that companies like Sony and Samsung and everybody else are doing an absolutely horrible job of getting this information out. I tried google searches for a list of movies that work with Sony's box, and it seems like I'm having to be a detective to actually find an accurate and up to date list. You'd think Sony would be shouting from the hilltops about this stuff. Nobody is going to buy 4K tv's just for the F of it, we need to know what content is available, from who, how much, and what is coming soon. Etc, etc.
