    It does now - you can buy a cheap 4K 40" TV at Frys for $199. It may be difficult to find HD TV soon but there is plenty of HD delivered content due to the web, foreign broadcast distribution, and existing HD TV sets that won't be replaced by consumers because they don't need to, income and budget, etc. I know that there are places in Asia and India that still delivers in 4:3 and SD format because people still own SD TVs. A local Asian content distributor for a Asian cable TV channel requires that filmmaker content to be in SD format because of their market base - low income old TV ownership. My aunt subscribes to their content for $12/month and she watches them on a 720p TV with the content displayed on 4:3 format. There's millions of these folks. Nevertheless, technology is progressing faster in places that can use 4K and 8K. Definitely a good thing. I just think HD content, on the other hand, still has a long runway and won't disappear soon.

    It's 2019 and my internet speed is 5Mbps, 0.6Mbps upload.
    100Mbps internet is 40 per month, beyond the price point and needs of many average people. The UK only switched off the old analog tv signal a couple of years ago. Quite a few people (surprisingly) still watch B&W tv.
    I think people in highly profitable, well serviced urban areas often forget what is going on in the wider community. As the BBC pointed out, 4K is still some way off for many television consumers. $200 8K in two years? You will be lucky to see 8K as a widely used format by then, let alone dirt cheap.

    There’s a difference between using a TV for its intended purpose and owning one because technology has forced most people whom are looking to purchase a new TV to own one. Even with 4K, rarely anyone watches 4K content on their 4K TV. They only own a 4K TV because the 4K TVs pushed the HD TVs out the store, and history will repeat itself once again in a world that’s moving faster than ever.

    Personally, I love the 90s and a 4:3 SD delivery of all of the shows I used to watch is right up my alley.
