4K TV is the next generation of televisions that are now available. Also known as ultra HD or UHD the television picture quality is a staggering four times the detail of HD making your viewing experience the best it has ever been.
A 4K ultra HD TV picture is 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, giving you more than 8 million pixels in total, which is four times the number in ‘normal’ high-definition televisions. In fact, there’s so much fantastic detail and depth in the picture quality that it can sometimes feel that you are watching it in 3D but without the need for special glasses!
Most of the big brands are now making 4K TVs such as Samsung, Panasonic, LG and Sony with prices starting from £1000 to much more depending on how advanced you want to go.
4K TVs tend to be big screen models of 40-inches or over so that you can get the most of the superb picture quality.
Upscaling HD picture quality
Whilst there are no 4K TV channels at the moment, it’s only a matter of time before this happens. Netflix has already started showing programmes in 4K such as popular series like Breaking Bad and House of Cards and 4K Blu-ray discs will be with us by Christmas 2015.
Buying a 4K TV now will upscale the quality of programmes that are currently in HD and you will get to enjoy the best quality viewing experience that technology can give you. Once there is more 4K content available then you will be able to enjoy it in all its glory!
