A Good Day To Buy A 4k TV

Why is 4k so special?

Why 4k TVs are a worthwhile (and affordable) purchase

The times they are a changing. Why now is the time to invest in a 4k TV.

The rate of change in Twenty-first Century technology can do most people’s spud in! I think the last time Joe Public could just about keep up was when the 3 field system of crop rotation was introduced in the Middle Ages. Things change so quickly but I hope to answer the question why I think now is the time to invest in a 4k TV for your home.

It’s guaranteed that as soon as you walk out of the shop the new TV you’ve bought will be immediately superceeded with an even newer and shinier one! It’s a cross we all have to bear. However, after spending an inordinate amount of time altruistically researching the subject I can announce to the world that NOW is the time to buy a 4K TV for the following reasons – so carpe diem in your face bitches.

Why is 4k TV so goodMy top 4 reasons you need a 4k TV in your life

Firstly, and at last, the prices are reasonable. Of course, you can buy the TV equivalent of the Salvator Mundi but I’ve just clicked on the John Lewis website and you can pick up a 40” SMART Ultra HD TV for less than £400. Say what!!! For the short-sighted amongst us a 55” equivalent will knock you back £650, just saying.

Secondly, from Apple TV to Amazon Fire sticks , every set-top box comes with 4K and HDR support. So films and TV shows can be downloaded and watched in 4K on your new and cheapish TV.

Thirdly, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and even YouTube are all offering video streaming in 4K. Costs may vary for the increased spec of the product, but hey you can’t buy a Rolls Royce for the price of a bicycle (see my last blog post!!).

Fourthly, PS4 and Xbox One have 4K capability. The PS4 Pro at around £350 is man enough to play games in 4K with HDR light support. The same is true of the X Box One X model at £450. Lower spec models only support HDR graphics. The X box One S can also power 4K video if you’re looking for a good 4K Blu-Ray player.

The future is now for 4k

Finally, 4K / HDR visuals will be the new default standard. Buying a 4k TV is future proofing yourself so buying a regular HD TV would be a big mistake.

The current state of play in relation to 4K content provided by terrestrial, cable and satellite based TV is that it is limited. The greatest access is through internet based services, but as Del Boy used to say in Only Fools and Horses this time next year we’ll all be millionaires owning 4K TV’s. Didn’t he?
