It is years out, 5-8 years we will see 4k PJ's and a few limited Pro high end 4k tv's. We will see OLED tv's well before 4k is fully out. There has to be a new HDMI format also.
For content, only in master copies for movies. 35mm film is downgraded for 1080p format, "big budget" movies (and some documentaries) are being recorded in 4k digital some 8k for IMAX. Then there is the issue of getting that 4k movie to a 4k tv. Forget streaming in the US for 20 years plus, with ISP bandwidth limits and the out dated backbone. Blu Ray will not cut it, new in-coding and a new media, either disk, USB stick or SD card.
