I doubt 8K will ever come via discs. It would need to much space and I just don't see 8K discs happening. I think 4K will be where discs stop. 8K will most likely come from streaming services.I liked this bit.... TCL will become a global leader in 8K display technology and push our partners, both streaming services and manufacturers, to provide consumers with the best possible content in this emerging new market
More than half the UltraHD discs that are available are not even 4K, they need to get that right first before spinning the 8K yarn
It depends on how they market it I supposed. If it is marketed as a high end thing (which it almost certainly will) then 4K will be for the enthusiast and Blu Ray will be from those who want to upgrade to the new fangled HD technology.Unless you have seriously good WiFi streaming 8 k will be a no go, could be 5 years or more for t.v. stations to get in on the act, even Netflix .long life in 4k
Because of the way 4K has been marketed people will assume that there will be a big difference no matter what TV you buy. There is only a real discernible difference between HD and 4k HDR with the right TV and the right source content. How do you market that? This is where the disappointment you feel is already being expressed in many forums. It would be interesting to see if they try to market 8K over the bones of 4K. By that I mean they could say "we know 4K wasn't that great but try 8K, it really is great!". I don't think they will do this but although marketing is practically a science, the aim is always to stop you from thinking and just to make you "feel" something is right. This works especially well with things where most people don't really have a clue like technology and politics.This is the first time whereby I just don’t care. I embraced 4K as soon as I could and the difference over Full HD is there for sure. But it’s not the difference between DVD and Blu Ray in my opinion. The main difference to the eye is the colour.
Presumably you went from DVD to Blu-ray to UHD. DVDs still sell very well.This is the first time whereby I just don’t care.

8K may be ok for 100” displays plus. But what other real world situations do we need 8K? Certainly not in the home.
Streaming "cough" ... in the uk with Virgin Quoting 300+ Meg Then Throttling the Speed (Calling it traffic Management) Trying to Stream 4K is Bad Enough (its like watching Norman Collier - Remember Him? The UK Could Have Been a Leading Country With its Broadband Network? However As ALWAYS NoBody wanted To invest at the beginning (BT , VIRGIN , CABLE TEL) & Now they are ALL Spending Way More ... Than all chipping in at the start? You Gotta Laugh The GOVERNMENT have Promised Faster Broadband For ALL ... Except you know what past promises have come to? NOTHING? Brexit Anyone "cough"I doubt 8K will ever come via discs. It would need to much space and I just don't see 8K discs happening.
