Japan will start the world’s first 4K TV broadcast in July 2014, two years earlier than originally planned.
According to the Asahi Times, the Japanese ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has decided to start broadcasting in 4k during the finals of the football World Cup in Brazil in July 2014.
The first broadcasts will be transmitted via the country’s communication satellites rather than via the direct broadcast satellites.
However, usage of BS satellites is planned at a later stage. Originally, the Japanese were planning to launch 4K broadcast in 2016.
The move to bring the world’s first regular 4K broadcasts” forward is intended to boast 4K television set sales. The UltraHD televisions are now on sale by Japanese makers including Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba and Sharp as well as from Korean manufacturers such as LG.
