    Mike explains, “If you’ve purchased a 4K TV this spring, you’ll be happy to know its obsolete. An 8K TV has just hit the market. Okay, I’m kidding about the obsolete. Sharp is wasting no time and has just released an 8K television… 16 times the resolution of HD TV and 4 times 4K. Stunning yes, but there are still a few issues here. There isn’t much 8K content available.”
