The tweet has since been removed but we felt that this really begs the question, Did Samsung make a case for not connecting your Smart TV to the Internet?

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment 4K Ultra HD Survey

SONY is running a survey on its website soliciting information about what we’d like to see in 4K. The movies are old because all new titles are released in 4K whether the movie would benefit from 4K or not.  We discuss if this is even necessary and ask who is going back and replacing their HD discs with 4K or whether a 4K treatment would get you to spend your money on a title that you passed on in HD

In your segment on Sony's 4K movies choices, I have to disagree with one aspect on your view. I perceive 4K UHD as a format that translates the look and feel of film to our tvs with the least amount of compression and artifacts. It also allows the inherent grain of film to be transferred at the higher possible resolution, meaning what we see on our 4K screens is closer to what one would see watching the original film stock. From that perspective, any film benefits from a 4K scan. This is the primary reason why many companies today scan in 4K, even thought they may not release it in the 4K UHD format. I welcome any film that can be viewed in a format that has the least amount of compression from the original source.
