The new 4K content will come on a server that comes ( for loan ) with the tv.
http://www.theverge.com/2012/11/29/3...ry-home-server

10 films in 4K including "The Bridge over the river Kwai" and "Taxi Driver".
So I hope somebody will do a comparison of the 4K edition with the BD edition when this tv comes out.

I wonder how long it will be before we can readily see this in person to see how much of a difference is actually discernible?

Certainly for me, pretty much no matter what it looks like, the difference over my current set is not going to be worth $25,000. It'll be a while before I even consider upgrading to that kind of set.

I have to agree with you. Well said.

Can't belive the controler is a Sony Tablet! lol I'd hope so at that price though. Good selection of 4k films in there too.

The Amazing Spiderman, Total Recall (2012), The Karate Kid (2010), Salt, Battle: Los Angeles, The Other Guys, Bad Teacher, That's My Boy, Taxi Driver, and The Bridge on the River Kwai. Also included will be a couple of short videos, amongst them Red Bull Media House's The Athlete Machine: Red Bull Kluge.

How does this screen perform in off angle viewing from the side? Is it as good as plasma?

No off axis is ever as good as plasma and although I've always been a plasma fan, with this and Samsung's 75" 9000 series, I'm starting to see the limitations of current plasmas like depth and detail in the blacks.

Just saw that TV today it looked amazing, although I don't really see the point as there is no HDMI spec that supports 4K at this point in time.

For 4K I don't care how the feet look with 84" I would be looking at the entire screen and not the feet.

You can already buy AV receivers with 4K pass-through and 4K upconversion with HDMI 1.4.

Give it some time. We're probably looking at a situation similar to the Sony XBR3, the first 70" LCD TV that sold for $33,000 in 2007. The 70" XBR7 followed shortly after (2009?) for around $20,000, but was taken off the market when the 70" Sharp LED backlit TV appeared in 2011 for a street price of $2,000. If the past is any indicator, the price on the 84" 4K sets and their variants is going to drop like a rock.

As much as I love the look of this tv and the 4K thing there is no way I will be able to afford it because its WAY out of my price range. I am all set for a couple of years with my HX750.

Although specs for the PS4 (Orbis) have not been made official I have heard that it is going to be able to do 4K gaming, have not hear about movies as of yet.

1080p @60fps will be an achievment in the next gen consoles. 4k games would be an act of God.

The hardware involved costs too much and would run too hot to be viable for a games console.

4k video playback on the other hand is completely possible and I'd actually expect it, since Sony as a whole has come to rely on SCE and the PlayStation to try and advance sales of new tech.

PS2 got DVD players int millions of new homes that may otherwise never had bothered same for PS3 and Blu-ray. PS4 will be there to help deliver 4k video to those that can take advantage of it.

The first high def broadcast in the US was in November 1998 the first Blu ray came out in 2006 that's 8 years in another 8 years it will be 2020. That's if the same cycle for high def continues to 4K, yes I already know they have some 4K content.

If the Mayans are correct we will only be around for 8 more days any way so what the hell.

i might be alone on this but i think a 8k tv is just overkill. 90+ inch tv is alittle too much. I love my 55" tv.

You're definitely not alone but it's funny how perceptions change.

25" CRTs used to be considered pretty big. When CRT projection sets were humongous appliances they were generally banished to garages and basements.

Now? I think 42" is the median screen size and 50"-55" doesn't seem at all out of place or overly large in living rooms.

Does a 70"-90" screen seem like it might be a bit overwhelming for a tv?

Yeah, a little bit. But who knows how we'll feel about that in a few years.
