Many of the TVs in the shops are 4K, but how much 4K TV do the people
who buy them watch?
I have only found a few 4K programmes from the likes of Netflix. Is
there any hope that BBC, ITV or C4 will start broadcasting 4K channels
on satellite or the Internet?
Very little, I would suggest. The bandwidth currently allocated for
broadcasting 1920x1080 is already not quite adequate to do it justice
and is regularly whittled away to provide more bandwidth for other
services, and the potential improvement in changing to 4K (even if it
were done properly, which it probably wouldn't be) is negligible on
anything other than the sort of humungously big screens that not
everybody will want or could afford. So not much chance of it
happening for a long time.
