HD READY OR FULL HD?
24 months ago
HDTV has been available in the UK since 2005 on Virgin Media, 2006 on Sky or Freesat and terrestrial Freeview in 2009. However, to watch HDTV you need a high definition TV and to make things easy for you there’s two different options available. You can either get a HD ready or a Full HD/HD ready 1080p. Both can broadcast HD channels, but only the Full HD TVs can allow you to get the best out of blu-ray movies and gaming consoles.
Well, 4K UHD is a new breed. 4K UHD is 4x the 1080p image so you can be sure that your viewing experience will be taken to a cinematic level. Similar to when HDTV first launched in England there isn’t many channels available in 4K UHD, but this shouldn’t stop you from buying a 4K UHD TV. A lot of the 4K models come with an automatic upscaling function which takes you’re 1080p image to a 4KUHD quality. Also you’re buying for the future. When people are rushing to buy a 4KUHD TV you’ll be sat at home watching your 4K UHD TV.
