you will after your tv breaks at the designed point of obsoletion. ppl are already using 2560x1600, or in the case of having 3 monitors 5760x1200. i know you like meat and potatoes, but alot of ppl like change for the better and not just "what was good for muh pah is good fer me and everyone else" mentality. get some glasses jebidiah 1080p is bunk if you sit close enough your screen is mimicking an actual theatre aspect ratio, and relative viewing size.


That being said, a lot of back-catalog films only have 2K digital transfers... it's mostly new films and a small cross-section of classic titles that have 4K digital transfers available. There's a large amount of the corpus of cinema that will never take advantage of any resolution much greater than 1080p.

Of course, having 4K sets in the wild will force digital cinema to step their game up... but that's a different case entirely.
