3D Is Dead. Will 4k And 8k TV Make It?

Are we taking bets? Will 4k and 8K TVs make it or will they go the way of 3D TVs?

There's just one problem: the content. As it stands now, you can get HD programming via cable but the bulk of it isn't even true HD, it's 720p resolution. That's not really a factor in many cases, it's just a reality that cable wires simply cannot handle the bandwidth of a true 1080p image. For example, AT&T U-Verse's DVRs cannot handle more than 4 simultaneous streams.
