No content gonna happen until this is fixed and right now there doesn't exist a way to do this.
Have fun watching proprietary content for the foreseeable and possible future.
No point in continue the endless Trolling based on your lack of knowledge.
The 4K consumer displays (except the Sony VW1000 projector) have still not reached peoples homes, so the delivery paths have still some time for testing.
Better that you inform yourself than exposing your ignorance in these trollposts.
I help you out a little to get you educated.April 9, 2012 ULTRA HDTV The satellite Astra 2B
Sept 11, 2012, IBC; Sony and Astra test transmit UHD over satellite.
The satellite Astra 2B ( 28.2 ° E ) started technical tests on ULTRA HDTV (also known as Ultra HD). Transponder works with European coverage, so the test can be tuned in Central Europe.
January 11 2013, Eutelsat provides Europe's first ultra HD channel
Sony Corp prototyped a system that enables to transmit 4k (3,840 x 2,160-pixel) video in real time via a satellite connection.
The company demonstrated the transmission of 4k video at IBC 2012, which runs from Sept 6 to 11, 2012, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This is the first time that such a transmission has been demonstrated in public.
Sony realized the system in collaboration with SES S.A., a Luxembourg-based major satellite distribution firm. From a base of SES in Luxembourg, an edited 4k video content was transmitted in the "DVB-S2" format via a satellite.
The real-time 4k video transmission system announced this time has a transmission rate of 50Mbps with the H.264 technology.
But Sony aims to increase the compression rate to realize a transmission rate of 10M to 20Mbps. Also, for satellite connection, it plans to enable a two-channel transmission with one transponder.
Sony considers applying the "HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding)," which is one of the next-generation video compression technologies, as a coding technology. It aims to realize twice as high a compression rate as that of H.264 while keeping an eye on trends in the standardization of formats.
Watch Eutelsat's Ultra High Definition demonstration channel on EUTELSAT 10A at 10° East:
Satellite capacity provider Eutelsat has started Europe’s first continuous transmissions of content filmed in the 4K HD format in partnership with French video compression specialist ATEME.
The new channel operates in progressive mode at 50fps and at 3840 x 2160 resolution — or about eight million pixels altogether. It will require 4X the bandwidth of 1080p HD, or 8X most current HD services operating at 1080i or 720p at the same frame rate. Using ATEME equipment, the content is being encoded via MPEG4/H.264 and transmitted at 40Mb/s in four Quad HD streams, uplinked to the Eutelsat 10A satellite from the operator’s teleport in Rambouillet, near Paris.
Frequency: 11304 MHz
Symbol rate: 27500
Ultra High Definition requires significant transmission capacity, that some terrestrial systems will not be able to provide everywhere immediately.
:: Satellite capacity is fully transparent and requires no modification to accommodate Ultra-HD transmissions
:: Satellite can transport several Quad HDTV / 4k TV channels per transponder
:: Satellite ensures easy and flexible use for demonstration and commercial Ultra-HD channels
:: Satellite ensures equal picture quality throughout the entire coverage(s)
These transmissions will be much more effective when HEVC/H.265 and the new MPEG codec is finalised later this year.REDRAY ®
4K over the internet delivery and playback system launching and shipping very soon.
Sony shipping a server system to buyers of their 84" UHDTV to tide them over until their delivery system launch in the summer.
My guess for Sony's 4K/UHD content delivery will be the Playstation 4.
So yes; Contrary to your claim it can be done, it's being done from multiple companies and will get better during 2013.
