Reasons to Consider a 4K TV

Posted On: 01-16-2019

If you watch television, chances are you have recently heard of 4K TV technology. What exactly is 4K? 4K, also known as Ultra HD, is a general reference to the resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. When you do the math, that’s four times more pixels than those found in your typical HD TV — that’s about 8.3 million pixels in total. When there are more pixels crammed into your TV, you will have a clearer, more defined picture.

There has been a recent explosion of 4K TV content as of late. All the newest programs and apps are implementing 4K into their programming. when you buy a 4K TV, you can enjoy all the shows that you know and love with four times the resolution and detail as compared to normal HD quality. Most 4K TVs also come with HDR. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and is the next generation of picture quality. This picture quality is famous for delivering much more color and brightness than ever before to create a vivid and vibrant picture.


4K TVs also implement a much nicer design. Long gone are the days where a TV has those ugly, chunky bezels and frames. Now, you can enjoy a much sleeker, more sophisticated and clean design with your new TV. This also means upgrading in the future becomes much easier as most of the screen designs are manufactured to take up less space.

Games and streaming

If you are a gamer, a 4K TV is leaps and bounds beyond regular TVs in terms of game graphics and design. All the large game consoles feature 4K HDR graphics and with the combination of a 4K TV, your favorite game can look truly eye-popping. 4K TVs have also dropped in price since last year. This means that you can get a decent set with other applications for the same price as the average regular HD TV a year ago.

4K content

4K content is everywhere now. This brings viewers closer to reality and offers more vibrant details for viewers to immerse themselves within the action. The enhanced picture definition also allows superb image quality and improved contrast levels. In addition, 4K TVs tend to have the slickest styling and the fastest processors. This translates to better sound — these TVs come built-in with sound systems that fit around the set to supply the best audio for the viewers.

New standard

With all the new tech and gadgets floating around, having a 4K TV within your household is the new standard. It has already become the standard in the movie industry when it comes to graphics. As 4K content is becoming increasingly more available, streaming platforms and gaming consoles are racing head over heels to keep up.

The bottom line

With the price becoming more and more affordable, 4K resolution and TVs are making the step up in improved picture quality much easier than it was years ago. Now is the time to take a leap and invest in this new technology.
