It may be the standard, but it doesn't mean that most people will go out and get an 8k TV.

8k will be the reserve of tech geeks. Even 4k is not that popular. I would describe myself as quite techie and even I haven't got a 4k TV - my FHD TV from over 10 years ago works just fine.

Locally we're being forced to update TVs. Anything ten years old is too old. The broadcasters are switching to HEVC and supposedly that only became standard in 2016.

4K TVs start at around €200 and by €300 almost everything is 4K . The quality of those TVs isn't equal to the more expensive but it's still 4K.

Can't you buy an antenna?

Similar thing happened in the UK when everything moved to digital. Wasn't necessary to upgrade your TV though, just buy a cheap set top box.

This is OTA . So with an antenna. The options are

New TV. Which will likely use less electricity then the old plus be smart.

An external decoder .

Or a sat dish but even there you need a newer decoder.

TV manufacturing leads the rest follows. 4k and led tv is starting to phase out. 8k and oled will become affordable in the coming years just like 4k. Technology is relentless.

Yesterday i just saw a 720p screen on sale at Walmart. Technology may be relentless but it's also very slow and people are not made of money.

I bought a 720p set for my mother in law, and it had an integrated dvd player!

Currently even HD through satellite in the UK is only normal HD.

Even the people who are made of money are mostly happy with their 1080p and 720p TVs and don't see a need to chase the latest and greatest. When I can count the TV announcer eyelashes on my 1080p TV, that's good enough.

Well like I said, when it becomes affordable then we can talk. But really, the only reason consumers switched to 4K is because 1080p got pulled from the shelves. Between the complete lack of 8K content and the lack of meaningful difference between 4K/6K/8K at normal TV viewing distances there's no point. The only reason most people buy TVs now is to replace old broken ones.

Technology is relentless. Your arguments against 8k and such have been repeated countless of times over history.

8k is coming just like 4k replaced 1080p. And 8k will be replace with something better in the future and so on.

I am sure there are people/small business buying small 720p tv. These cheap $100 or less disposalable tv design to show of their products in shows and in their shops.

However household consumers will buy tv that are currently the standard.

Nobody is denying that 8k is coming.

But is it really true that 4k replaced 1080p? I mean, there are still an awful lot of people that still have 720p or 1080p TVs and amongst those who do have 4k TVs, a hell of a lot of content that is being consumed is sub 4k.

The vast majority of people bought 4K because 1080P TVs in the sizes they wanted were discontinued. Given how non-existent 8K content is, and how far into the realm of diminishing returns its added resolution is in a practical context, that's pretty much the only way people will move to 8K. And even that will have to come with huge price drops from where it's currently priced.

Agree. My point is that people are not replacing their 1080p sets for the improvement.

Doubtful, For Now

Unless something unforeseen happens, to change my mind, my answer is “no.” My iPhones 7 Plus and 11 Pro Max meet my present and foreseeable video needs. I just acquired a 16”MacBook Pro, and will be in no hurry to upgrade anytime soon.

I do shoot DSLRs, with MP up to 50+, but do not enjoy post-processing, so, the latest and greatest computer is not a priority.

-- hide signature --

By accident of availability, I learned to use Canon and Nikon DSLRs at the same time. I love specific lenses made by both Canon and Nikon, too much to quit either system. Dabbling with Leica-M is fun, too. I am, certainly, not an expert.

Yes, relentless as far as dropping the price of older but still great tech. I have no interest in 8k but it's fantastic that it's resulted in the rapid decline in the price of 4k TVs. What I find very amusing is the way some people change their opinions. A couple years ago 4k was fantastic and the future of video. Now it's old, obsolete and not good enough. That type of thinking is something I don't understand. If it was great a few years ago it's still great today. That doesn't change just because something better comes along.

When I replaced my ageing 11 year old 50" HD TV last winter with a 58" 4k model I didn't suddenly find movies and TV shows more entertaining.

Its all a marketing scheme to increase sales. Heck I still use DVD's with a 32inch screen in my bedroom and still looks great. My laptop has QHD which is somewhere between a 1080p and 4k and it is very sharp and clear. I don't even process 4k video unless your future proofing.
