No doubt that several layers of DRM will accompany support for 4K/8K playback.

No doubt that pirate copies will be drm-free, and therefore superior to authentic products …

Problem with this is whom can pay for 4k stream or afford to get 4k system setup to get the full effect. The screen isn’t the only part of 4k experiences.

I agree, you also need content (Games and movies), and you also need to have a good graphics card.
I also dont want to think how much space you will need for a two hour movie on your hard drive.

I can run GTA 4 on 1080 :bigsmile: so GTA V is out of the question for now.
