Parks: Pricing, Limited Content Stymie Wider 4KTV Adoption

With the fourth quarter and holidays integral to television sales, new data from Parks Associates says 42% of domestic broadband households are unfamiliar with 4K technology, and thus unwilling to pay premium prices for technology offering scant content selection.

4K Ultra High-Definition technology is said to offer four-times the picture resolution of 1080p HD quality.

“More consumers value other attributes, including smart TV capability, built-in Wi-Fi and high-resolution audio over 4K picture quality,” Barbara Kraus, director of research at Parks, said in a statement.
