This thread is pretty massive, and I have not been back on dbstalk in years. I got 2 little ones at home that have consumed most of my spare time. However, we are moving and I am getting a new 4K tv and I am VERY interested in what DirecTV is doing, since iv'e been with DTV for many years and don't plan on dumping them any time soon. But as I understand it, the limited amount of 4K content out there right now is ALL streaming content that would use your data plan and NOT sent via satellite correct? What are DTV's plans for 4K via satellite? Any timelines that have been talked about? We should keep the OP of this thread up-to-date with some of this info for folks like me.
Thanks in advance!
I'd wait until the dust settles. Too many variables right now to make a big purchase, I think. I want a 4K too, almost made a huge mistake last year, but came to my senses and backed off. Until all 4Ks are plug and play, I'm waiting. If you just have to have one right now, the Sammy JS9000 seems to be a good choice.
