It’s all about resolution. 4K Ultra high definition TVs offer greater picture clarity because they have more pixels. Images will look sharper and crisper, no matter where you are sitting in the room.
If you pay attention to TV technology, you know that 4K Ultra HD has dominated the conversation in the last few years. Buying a 4K TV is your first step if you want to watch 4K content. But just because you have a 4K TV doesn’t automatically mean you’ll be watching 4K content. You have to specifically steam 4K content. The good news is that there is a lot of 4K content available, as more is being created.
If you have a Smart TV, your TV can connect directly with your Wi-Fi and you can access different apps to find 4K content. If you don’t have a Smart TV (or you prefer to have both), you’ll need some kind of streaming media player. You can also connect to the Internet and access apps on certain video game consoles and Blu-ray players.
