How to find 4K content online

4K content online

What makes 4K content so special?

4K content is the next level of HD with about four times the resolution of regular 1080p HD content. This makes 4K (also called Ultra High Definition or UHD) content look crisp and clean on ultra-high-res screens. If you want the most vibrant image possible, 4K is what you should be looking for.

When 4K TVs originally hit the market, they were exorbitantly expensive. However, 4K TVs are becoming much more attractively priced. You can find a 50” 4K TV on Amazon.com selling for as little as $500 (see examples). Once you’ve purchased your 4K TV, the question becomes, “where can I find 4K content online?”

Get the fattest, dumbest pipe you can find when cutting the cord

Cutting the cord? Is your network fast enough?

Cutting the cord puts demands on your home Internet connection. A lot of the stuff that used to come to you by way of a coax cable or satellite dish now comes over the Internet instead.

cutting the cordPeople talk about the standard measurement of Internet or network speed, megabit (note: bit, not byte) like it’s supposed to mean something to most people.

If 30 megabits per second (Mbps) is good, then it stands to reason, 50 Mbps is better. 100 Mbps must be really good and when you get up to 1,000 Mbps (1 gigabit per second or 1 Gbps), you’re squarely in “amazing” territory.

1 Gbps, of the sort provided by fiber Internet access, is, dare we say, life-changing. It also isn’t available in most places yet…

Since fiber access isn’t available everywhere, most people still have to play the incumbent copper provider’s game of Pick the Megabits: trying to measure cost against Megabits which, as we sort of established, is a ruler that most people simply don’t understand (and shouldn’t have to).

We’re here to offer what help we can in picking through the options to find one that fits.

No tactics and no tricks. Here’s our Ting pricing promise.

This blog post partly comes out of internal conversations we have all the time here about Ting pricing and promotions on both Ting Mobile and Ting Internet. But to be honest, it mostly comes out of a phone call I had with my cable company recently.

On behalf of Ting (without actually running it by everybody first), I vow that we will never do any of the following:
