While HD is now the standard for TV, film, and most videos streaming online, some people have jumped over to 4Ka resolution four times higher than 1080p, the standard for HD. The resolution is approximately 4,000 pixels horizontally, hence the name. While mainstream television has yet to focus significantly on it, 4K resolution is gaining traction on streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
4K isnt something everyone can boot up instantly, though. For one, you need to purchase a 4K Ultra HD TV and set it up properly before you can start to watch 4K quality TVyour internet browser wont cut it.
