So, where’s the 4K content? David Pierce, The Verge:

The question, as always: where will content come from? The TV can display footage up to 3,840 x 2,160 in resolution, but there’s not that much of the content out there. We asked Sony America COO Phil Molyneux that question, and his answer was basically “it’s coming later.”

I guess we should be happy with 4K up-conversion for the time being.
