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

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.

Octo HD is coming big: Some of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games will be covered in 8K ‘Super Hi-Vision’ (for Japan), and there will be 4K Ultra HD versions created for testing and comparison purposes. The 8K versions for Japan will include ‘immersive’ audio using what Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) describe as “3D 22.2 channel audio surround sound”. Some 130 hours (out of a claimed 7,000 hours of actual TV coverage) of 8K Super Hi-Vision will be beamed from Brazil to Japan, including live coverage of the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as Swimming, Judo, Athletics, Basketball and Football. In addition, an ENG camera crew will capture select sports at other venues, “including the Olympic spirit and atmosphere” for re-play later.

Eh Japan doesn't influence TV tech. anywhere else.

Even when it dominated TV manufacturing, which it no longer is.

NHK were collaborating on 7.68K tests quite a while ago with the BBC. It also modified display(s) for higher frame rate tests for the EBU. NHK's image resolution of 7680x4320 got put into the ITU recommendations and the DVB specs for a planned UHD resolution (now called UHD 3 using that res) where they're projecting it being broadcast around year 2020.

Well lets see if they even have 4K broadcasts here, let alone 8K.

It could be in the spec. but that doesn't reflect market realities.
