+1

There is very few programming that is even in true 1080p. Most of the "HD" programming available via cable/dish is highly compressed 780i video that isn't even comparable to regular DVD quality, never mind Bluray.

It will take some time before cable/dish can catch up to Bluray quality.

As other's have said, you will probably need a display much larger than 60" to truly appreciate 4K over 1080p.
