The Samsung LCD comes with its own external 4K DVB-S2 receiver.

The IFA show had some prototype DVB 4K receivers on show.

O really... I didnt see any feedback from samsung 4k fan here. It seems like Sony is a winner for 4k tvs here

I have also heard that one 4k channels is on-air at 10.0E but I have been told that there is no receiver to view the channel.....


Last, I have been googling it and guys are saying that IPTV might be a best solution for 4k receiver in future....

This Samsung was only introduced at IFA, so it probably isn't shipping yet. The others like the Sony were introduced at last year's IFA, so they are being replaced with the next/second generation models. Samsung is offering a seperate inputbox/with DVB-S2 receiver, because of the lacking H.265 and HDMI 2.0 chips, so it can easily be swapped for a box that offers the latest in connectivity.

Eutelsat is carrying four demo channels I believe, the Samsung Channel, an H.264 channel and a second in h.265 run by Eutelsat/Ateme, and a fourth one I can't remember the details of (Panasonic?). Astra is also running a couple of demo channels.

Broadcom announced it started shipping its first H.265 decoder chips, but there are no front-end chips, yet.

I am not aware of any 4k receiver available in the market.Some of test satellite signals for 4k tv has disappeared and there is no receiver to test them anyway....

Not yet. You would also want a receiver that supports 50/60fps decompression not just the 24 fps the demonstrator units in this years 4K trial transmissons had.

I did see some professional satellite receiver at IBC, but can't remember where and what, and if it was 265 or 264.

Blackmagic doesn't offer a front end, does it? No ASI input either, so you can't feed it with a seperate DVB-S2 demodulator.
