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.
