Brilliant, you should patent this term and sell it to the Samsung marketing guys.

He flat out said the company has no plans for it now or anytime in the future. He said before the company did that they would like to make some of their channels 1080p and that's not going to happen anytime soon either because it would cost too much to upgrade their system. The only Directv 1080p offering right now is their Pay Per View Movie channels otherwise its all 720p or 1080i. But for 4K for Directv in the future or 3 years from now? I highly doubt it.



Steve, imagine the bandwidth they will need for 4K. After thinking about this I wonder if the cable and satellite companies will ever do 4K or maybe do just a couple of channels like they did with 3D. Your absolutely right many of the channels are still in 720, and I have a feeling they could stay that way quite awhile.

The only way the could do it,is get rid of SD channels to have more bandwith

Using the newly approved h.265 codec, 4K can be transmitted using no more bandwidth than a premium 1080p channel. Using the new compression standard, 4K would have a average 10-20Mbps transfer rate.

In theory that sounds great, however there's no standard set yet for 4K that I know of as far as cable and satellite go. I find it hard to believe it would use no more bandwidth than regular HD. I'll have to have that verified to believe it.

soooooooooo,

you take a 55 inch tv, bend it so it curves, the 55 inch viewing area is what now?

I think their plan is to sell the 55 inch curved to pay for making the 80, 90 inch and larger sets lol

I looked at the curved model at Richfield a couple days ago.

Besides the awesome black levels it wasn't that impressive.

Nice TV but definitely not worth the price.

I wouldn't even buy it if I had the money.

Are you saying it wasn't that impressive considering its' price, or that it wasn't that impressive period?

Considering it's price and it's size.

Seems like 8000 to 10,000 would've been more reasonable.

I would agree. They are just trying to recover as much of their research dollars as they can. I also think yields are lower than they wanted them at launch time, driving up factory costs. There was a lot of pressure to launch them, due to their own prior promises. They'll come down. They are impressive though, from a performance standpoint.

I think that reading this post if they were to, manufacturers will realize that the future of curve tvs is very slim.

The number of people considering buying one of this sets is very limited. First the price is way to expensive and then there is
how you have lost the angle at witch you can sit and still see a good picture if you are sitting on either side
of the tv.

I love my plasma and if I were to consider an OLED it certainly won't be a curve one.


I hope they have good luck with sales, but I won't be buying one of them.

I will give LG and Samsung some credit at least for trying to get OLED started unlike Sony and Panasonic who ended a partnership to produce and make OLED TV's. I still believe that OLED is the future and NOT 4K.
