Another big brand has joined the 4K Ultra HD TV fray, as JVC will introduce the 65-inch, $1,999 JVC Diamond Series DM65USR by the end of this month.
There’s been a lot of noise about 4K Ultra HD TV this year, but not many people know exactly what it is. So we decided to make a video that can serve as a primer on the technology.
The price floor is continuing to crumble in the 4K Ultra HD TV market — and the 4K content hasn’t even arrived yet. There will be five new 4K Ultra HD TV models on the market very soon, as Vizio today launched its P-Series of Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TVs — and they’re all priced under $2,500. Even the 70-inch model.
We’ve been harping on this for a long time: Are the new class of super-high-resolution televisions called 4K TVs, UHD TVs, or Ultra HD TVs? This week, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), which runs the yearly, epic CES show in Las Vegas and the rest of the year sets the tone for the consumer electronics industry, came up with a solution. Or maybe, more accurately, a compromise.
Ultra HD TVs are receiving lots of hype (at least from TV manufacturers), but the bugaboo has been, and continues to be, the lack of “native” Ultra HD content to watch on them. Broadcast, cable/satellite and Blu-ray don’t yet offer it, although Amazon and Netflix are stepping forward with limited offerings. Today comes some welcome news for the category, as there’s going to be a little more to watch soon on demand.

Oimgresne thing we always tell people when they ask about Ultra HD TV is to know that there isn’t much content for it yet (although that is slowwwly changing). The other is that the standards are still in flux, and there’s no guaranteeing that the Ultra HD TV (a.k.a., 4K TV) you buy today will work with the standards of tomorrow.
One of the biggest problems facing the rollout of Ultra HD TVs is that there’s no “native” Ultra HD content available to watch on them. There’s no Ultra HD TV channel yet, and there doesn’t seem to be one on the horizon. Although Netflix and Amazon will stream an extremely limited amount of Ultra HD content this year, it won’t be a panacea. And there’s no Ultra HD disc player, which would be the successor to the Blu-ray Disc player. Now there’s news that an Ultra HD player could be available by the end of 2015.
