4k televisions

The higher definition, more detail, and better textures seen in images translates perfectly to gaming. Games in this new format are one the shelves for Xbox, One S, and PlayStation 4 Pro.

Clarifying the Difference Between Ultra HD and 4k

In terms of television sets, Ultra HD and 4k televisions are virtually interchangeable. The more common of the two is 4k because the advanced resolution has four times the number of pixels as televisions known as full HD (high definition). The technology has now been introduced into the mainstream and is poised to become the new standard for home watching. Streaming services, such as Netflix, Apple TV, Amazon, and Sky Q already have original content available in the 4k format.
