Re: 4k News

Unfortunately an awful lot of people seem to have spent hard earned money on 4k tvs, before there are enough broadcaster's transmitting in that format, I know its not much consolation but there have been a number of posts on here warning to that fact. It pays to do a bit of research before spending on expensive items. Regards Micky

Re: 4k News

Yep fully appreciate that so do understand the sales pitch etc. But i still ask as their may be some addtional "news"

So have you heard about the iphone 15?

yep their will always be reasons for updating or are all the iphone owners being conned just as the new reg owners 17 plates?

I love my screens i do undestand and have viewed genuine 4k and 8k? examples but understand that they will come in due course.

As did 3D and what of those folk with them easy buy a new screen we are all being manipulated to by the latest Tech

I would suggest that the opposite is true, the vast majority of people are not being manipulated and have simply ignored the 3D fad, which has come and gone, and are equally ignoring 4K. 

That is the primary reason that the TV manufacturers keep on coming out with the next best thing. I wonder how many 4K TV sales are to those with now redundant 3D TVs.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

one you do notice the colers in a 4k tv pair to hd tv and hd channels comes up better on a 4k tv.
two there is not a 4k twnner out yet only on sky q and vm v6 box once it gets better they will turn off the nomal channels and only have the hd and 4k bit in a few years time
