They probably will now, considering the games are pushed back to 2021. IIUC the Japanese broadcasters were all excited to roll out the technology for it. IMO we need teevee sets that can display it, and cable networks that can carry it for it to be meaningful.



Not even close to broadcast of 8k here in Australia.  But the technology is still interesting to me as I shoot some footage that I may wish to watch years from now when displaying 8k just might be common.

The other use is that 8k gives scope for crop.  A breakthrough in sensor tech to make it all work well seems to be needed....  but maybe the incentive for interchangeable lens cameras simply is not there, and 8k will be something phones do better in the end.
