I downloaded the NASA 4K channel on Roku last night. Picture looks AMAZING. And it's free :) Anybody who enjoys 4K quality should check it out :D

The point of this announcement by CBS is useless.
Why announce what kind of cameras you are using without putting providers in here to take advantage of the 4k.
Dumbing down 4k to 1080i is not even close the same.

Not a big time basketball fan but glad to see something after a long drought.

Not really, some of these TVs do a great job of up conversion. That said, I was not impressed with the last two college basketball games that were on 540-01.

Sorry, basketball to me is a waste of bandwidth. Fox does lots of major league baseball. Have they had baseball in 4K in the past?
