I love UHD 4K and HDR properly implemented is exciting but I've got to say this excitement is BS the Industry is feeding to us when the reality after 2+ years of Vizio promises and CES 2104/2015 and 2016 will promise us a Viagra Woody when reality is we get overpriced cream puff content = a fraction of a Library upon delivery or LACK thereof. Love viewing UHD but damn have any of you seen the Damn pricing at Amazon UHD for damn RERUN Movies? $25-$30 for damn rerun content - Really?
Perhaps an orgasmic happy ending would be worthy of such but for a refined material on old content has it's limits folks.
What the Hell is the UHD Alliance doing? Where's the UHD Broadcast Channels in the US Folks? Where's the Major Sports Channels using UHD? Next to NOTHING going into the third CES and Alliance for WHAT? Premiun Channels? UHD is AWESOME but it's availability in Broadcast, Cable, is BS and the Pricing for OLD Reruns in UHD at $25-$30 a Pop is INSANE! I can only watch my USB UHD Stick so many times. UHD Alliance is a FRAUD! Used at CES to Feed the Masses again and again!
Vizio late to the Table and certainly overpriced with no channels in UHD or HDR - Pkg such w them and it may work but this a car without wheels. Can't wait for another CES of BS unfulfilled Promises for UHD/HDR!
Thats the price people pay for being early adopters. Nobody is forcing anybody to be an early adopter.
I certainly wouldnt call it "must ado about nothing". All the people who attended Vizios' launch conference came away very impressed with the dolby vision demos. Including Robert Zohn, the owner of value electronics that hosts the shootout every year. He said the demos he seen were the best visual demos hes ever seen on a display.
As for UHD channels, that has nothing to do with the UHD alliance. If you have an issue with that, you would need to take it up with comcast/dish/directv or whomever your provider is. THEY are late to the party, not vizio or samsung or sony.
-A cable company in Europe launched a 4k sports channel back in august.
-Last week, Rogers cable company in Southern Ontario, Canada, announced that come 2016, they will be broadcasting EVERY Toronto Blue Jays home game in UHD in HDR (81 games), along with over 20 NHL games. If this chaps your ass like it does mine, then blame your cable company (in my case its comcast). But keep in mine, these early adoptor broadcasts wont be cheap either. the Rogers 4k sports channel requires a $150 internet package. Cable/dish is coming around, but its a slow movement depending on which parts of the world you are in, cant blame vizio for that.
in case you missed it, the first UHD player is set to hit the japan market on november 15th, hardly a month away. let them be the ginuea pigs :P
The vudu dolby vision HDR section is only like 8 movies but very impressive titles (max max, edge of tomorrow, san andreas) and will only grow as we turn the corner on 2015, basically every movie that comes out next year will be in UHD, so chill out
