I'm a DTV customer entering into the 4K world this week with a new TV, receiver, etc. So I'm faced with the choice of upgrading to the 4K capable DTV DVR system. Or, not. As I understand it, there are only three 4K channels now, yes? And one of those is just an "eye-candy" loop? Most of my 4K viewing is, of course, going to be from the streaming services.
A phone call to DTV told me I would have to turn in my old Genie DVR if I got the new 4K version. Problem is, I have well over 100 hours of stuff stored on the old one that I'd like to watch someday. If I turn it in, I lose it all. I guess the option to keep it for awhile while also using the new one isn't available.
So the question is - is it worth it, just for those 3 channels?
