Is broadcast even relevant in 2012? Most people I know are canceling their service, and I see articles about "cutting the cord" all the time now.
Broadcast quality is barely any better than the good online services, and far less flexible than on-demand content.
When it's something where I care about the image & sound quality, I watch it on Blu-ray, and if not, I'll watch it on my own schedule when it suits me, on-demand off Netflix or alternatives.
Broadcast isn't even 1080p yet (anywhere?) so why is there an expectation that they would adopt 4K at all? I don't understand why it keeps getting brought up here.
And that said, there's very little content on broadcast TV that's even worth watching in my opinion. Most of the people I know that do
still have cable/satellite service, spend half an hour just flicking through channels or looking through a guide trying to find
something to watch, instead of actually watching
something. Just about anything that is
worth watching, is available in other formats. (often a far superior Blu-ray set)
