So I'm not really sold on the need for an 8k TV (although for monitors potentially useful)...I could see it being useful with projectors for sure (although I think OLED will be cheap enough that I'm not positive projectors will gain much traction).

Does anyone wonder how 8k content would be delivered though? I have 150mbps internet, which should be good enough for it...but currently netflix 4k streams are 15mbps. What does it matter the resolution of the TV if you can't get the content providers to actually up the bitrate!

I can't imagine consumers in general will adopt another disc format. I'm glad UHD blu-ray exists...but the writing has been on the wall for a while with regard to discs. Convenience over quality. Without sufficient demand for discs, and content providers being stingy with bandwidth...I'm not sure how this will get off the ground realistically. I'm guessing this is at least 6 years away though so who knows.

people like you are destroying physical media streams are low quality can't replace authentic blu-ray technology

^^^^Is there a sentence in that?

We've had a lot of evaluation with this, and it's time to consider wiping out all mosquitoes. We can do that with carefully crafted GMO. It's just not an insect that is worth having around. Mother nature will adapt, just as she always has with the millions of other species that have vanished on their own. In fact, the impact will be remarkably minor.

So you took a comment about me lamenting the loss of physical media to streams (see:music, and actually, physical media is arguably already sort of dead to the general public), and saying that since streaming is here to stay regardless of what we do, it's even more unfortunate that they're streaming at such low bit-rates (4K at 25mbit would probably look pretty good).

Somehow this makes me a "hater" of physical media lol. I guess that's half true. I'd rather stream Netflix at 100mbit than clutter up my place with discs that have unskippable piracy warnings and trailers, but I definitely appreciate the quality boost physical media brings, believe me.
