We wanted to make sure that everyone knows that 4K Ultra HD TVs are not just good for playing only 4K movies and TV shows.  Of course, with its resolution being FOUR times higher and better than 1080 HD…it is a desire to watch native 4K-filmed movies.

However, this is not the only reason why you should upgrade to a 4K TV.  There is another major reason that will help to justify your immediate purchase of a 4K UHD TV.   Image result for what is 4k uhd upscaling

It is called UPSCALING or UPCONVERTING.  These mean the same.  Your 4K Television will automatically digitally enhance any High Definition (HD) film being played on it.  It must be at least 720 or 1080 HD in order for the upscaling to take place.

Basically, the upscaling means that it will enhance the HD film to fill in all of the extra pixels located inside a 4k display.  It basically stretches them and squeezes them in to fill the entire pixel field.  By doing this, your 4K TV will make the picture image look much better than what it would have looked like in its original format (720 or 1080 HD).  But, it cannot upscale to full 4K UHD.  It enhances it to somewhere in between 1080 and 4000-4K.

It is good for consumers to know this, so they are not disappointed because they were expecting the best possible 4K image that the TV could provide.  Upscaled content is NOT going to be the best your 4K TV will offer.

Above:   Note the difference in the image from Left to Right.  Upscaling takes a 1080 HD image and utilizes more pixels to increase quality.  *Note:  It upgrades to “near” 4K quality.  But, not full 4K UHD quality.  But, it is still better than 1080 HD.


If you want to watch the best of the best of all 4K content, you need to buy a 4K UHD Blu-Ray player and play 4K UHD Blu-Ray discs.  These have the greatest picture image that you will ever see on a Television today.  The image is so real and stunning that it will be hard for you to believe what you are seeing.  Its as if you are looking through a window at a real live scene with your bare naked eye-balls.  The image on the display is so true-to-life that it is jaw-dropping.

Almost everything that you watch will be at least 720 or 1080 HD.  This means that most of the material will be upscaled for a better picture image.  This alone is a good reason why you should upgrade to 4K sooner than later.  There is really no need to wait.

In past years, consumers did have some good reasoning why they should hold-off and not upgrade to 4K UHD just yet.

Here are some of the (past) reasons NOT to Buy 4K:

  •  There is not enough 4K content to watch
  • The prices are too high
  • 4K is too new to buy yet
  • Networks are not broadcasting in 4K
  • There isn’t enough selection to choose from
  • No one else is ‘hurrying’ to upgrade to 4K

These are just some of the reasons why consumers have not purchased a 4K UHD TV.

We are here to tell you that these reasons are NOT true anymore.  Do NOT believe them.  Do NOT wait any longer before upgrading your TV.

  1. I love that my 4K UHD Sony does upscaling automatically. I can tell the difference when I compare a regular 1080 HD image on my other non-4K Vizio TV to my Sony image that is upscaled using the same exact image (movie) The difference is HUGE.

    But, of course, it is still not as near as good as native or real 4K movies that were filmed using 4K resolution cameras. These are so real its like you are right there inside the scene or looking through a window. Its a ‘treat’ to watch native 4K content. You are missing out. Upgrade to 4K now>!
