Do I need a 4K TV?

I just made an appointment to install Optik TV and the package includes an Optik 4K PVR however it also says you need a 4K TV. Do I need 4K TV to watch tv in general or can I still use it and it just won't be in 4K? I was planning on using the TV I have now and upgrading to a 4K TV at a later date, will that work?

The 4K PVR/Wireless receivers are the newest equipment that’s available. To take advantage of the limited 4K content, you would require a 4K Television.

However your current television will display all the content in HD resolution. You can upgrade your tv in the future, without updating your optik tv hardware.

I have a 4K PVR and do not have a 4K TV. Picture on a 1080P HDTV is really good.  I am waiting for more 4K content (which is limited to Toronto Sports teams now) before buying 4K TV.  I have no interest in getting Netflix just for some 4K content.  So, while you wait the price of 4K Tvs will come down and hopefully 4K content goes up.
