If 4k boxes are coming, they would have to be offered at the same time as Shaw's roll out of 4k. Just as Bell Fibe 4k came out at the same time as Rogers 4k. I'd doubt Telus would start offering before the 2016 Olympics begin. It's more likely to be a pre NHL season start this September.
I wouldn't expect them for a year or two. The connection speeds out there needed for 4K just aren't sufficient yet to a large enough portion of the userbase to make it profitable. When fiber finally reaches a sizeable portion of the userbase, and Telus is able to crank up the speed, then, I'd suspect 4K will come.
I, too, heard that they would be out prior to the Olympics for fibre customers. Also, TELUS is producing VOD content in 4K already and down-converting it to 1080p for the current hardware, so this is happening sooner than later.
4K is like the big 3D push a while back. We all know what happened to those 3D tv's...
Well I sure can tell the difference on my Netflix on my 4k tv or my ultra HD tv to my 1080p tv because Netflix is 4k or ultra HD,so you can say its way in the future but there's a big diff on Netflix..iv watched (underworld)and( Pacific rim) side by side on my 4k Tv and my 1080p and there was a huge difference in picture quality..Its just like everyone said about 1080p and now you cant find a 720p tv unless you go to Walmart.And I do have the internet power to run 2 TV's on ultra HD.I think if you want to pay for it they should provide it like Xfinity does in the states,the people on telus 50 or telus 100 can afford it so let the person pick what they want just like Netflix..It just depends on how much you want to spend,I would be willing to pay a extra 50 to 75$ more for ultra HD services..And for 3d, I just rented transformers 3d on optic to watch with my son tonight,so some people still do watch and use the 3d TVs,just because you don't have one does mean other people that have them don't use them.
Ya,I don't think the U.S.A even offer's it yet,Roku 4 will stream 4k..My one samsung blueray player f7500 upscales to 4k quality..And my optic box let's you choose 1080p,I think it's just for vod..
It will be just for the 3 shows on VOD for Comcast. I doubt the American networks will be broadcasting in 4K any time soon.
Their equipment hasn't been released yet. The Samsung TVs will have a VOD app and there are only 3 shows they currently plan to release on VOD only as 4K.
For 4k or ultra HD Netflix you need a minimum 15mbps of internet power to stream in full 4k, so you need at least internet 50 and a download speed to your tv or blueray player of a minimum 20mbps..
