What is 4K?
4K resolution, also called Ultra HD, UHD, or simply 4K, refers to programming and televisions that provide a higher resolution than High Definition. 4K TVs and programming deliver roughly 4 times the number of pixels on the screen than regular HD, which results in clearer pictures. The extra pixels also allow more opportunities for nuanced colors and create a higher level of picture quality.
