As promised, 4K news has arrived from CES and we’re here to tell you all about it…
As we discussed at the back end of 2013, Netflix will begin to stream 4K content, kicking things off in February with the highly acclaimed political drama, House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey. Unsurprisingly, YouTube is hot on the heels of the content-streaming giant, after Google announced that the video-sharing site will begin to host more 4K content this year.
For those still scratching their heads, 4K is essentially Ultra HD. Four times the details of your 1080p television in the front room. Although it’s very much in its infancy right now, it’s pinned to gain massive popularity over the course of the year.
Where can I enjoy 4K?
Although there are currently no laptops, phones or tablets with 4K capable displays, there’s a swarm of rumours that it could happen this year – until then you will be able to enjoy YouTube and Netflix’s amazing new detail via a smart TV. Samsung and LG are heading the pack, but it’s only a matter of time before competing companies enter the 4K arena. Samsung recently announced two 4K sets measuring 105 and 85-inches, followed by LG with a 77-incher.
Unfortunately this means that in the not too distant future it will be time for a new TV, and your impressive Blu-Ray collection might soon be stacked up next to the Betamax and VHS.
Stay tuned as we’ll have a CES round-up this afternoon…
