Re: Sir Tim is 62

It's relatively trivial to reverse-engineer a 4K TV or numerous other attack vectors to sidestep any content-protection measure. with full quality. Main reason this has not yet happened much is probably that there really just isn't much demand or 4K content and the bitrate makes it not impractical, but inconvenient to transmit over the internet, for lttle gain compared with 1080p. As demand picks up and network speeds/data caps go up, I'm sure the "pirates" will step in.
