Despite a crystal-clear picture, consumers have yet to embrace 4K TV (UHD), predicted to be the next big innovation. An article from The Connectivist attributes the lack of sales to customer disappointment following the hype surrounding 3D TV.

Early-adopters have not shied away from the high prices of emerging technology in the past, but consumers seem skittish in regards to 4K TV. Slow sales may also be a result of the lack of programming available. However, Netflix and YouTube are developing new content to take full advantage of the new technology, giving hope to users interested in 4K TV capabilities.
