4K Ultra HD TVs (also known as UHD TV) delivers four times as much detail as 1080p Full HD, that’s eight million pixels compared to two million pixels. The difference is apparently stunning.
That sounds great until you realise that it’s not going to be broadcast but streamed over the internet and to stream at that quality you need around 15Mbps.
That’s double what the very best connections in the village currently receive, three times the average and seven times more than many.
In other words we can’t get 4K TV because our 1st generation broadband just isn’t up to it.
