The main indicator of image quality for modern TVs is the presence of 4K. 1080p is no longer considered to be the benchmark for image quality, and if it’s the maximum on TV, it’s unfortunately already outdated. With more and more consumers moving to 4K, the demand for compatible content continues to grow. Most popular streaming services around the world already support 4K resolution. These include Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Luckily, one of the newest streaming services, Disney Plus, isn’t far behind and also supports 4K resolution. For more information on this, see below.
