No, ITV is. Only the BBC gets a "the" in front of it, as well as similar crown-owned broadcasters like the CBC in Canada and the ABC in Australia.

The iTV is just something that doesn't exist at all.

Speed is not everything. Do you always go for the fastest car with the cheapest parts? I also have built many PC's, so there is nothing you can tell me there.

There is very little HD content here in the UK, on Virgin Media there are 6 (!!!) channels on the XL package. And even if you subscribe to more channels, most of it is upscaled crap. On a 4K telly this would look rubbish. So in real terms the world is not ready for 4K TV yet. We haven't adapted to HDTV yet, most HD content is already upscaled. And with some IPs cutting the amount of data you can download (i.e. Telekom in Germany) 4K is not yet ready for the masses.

How close?

And more importantly what is the average couch to screen distance?

See the problem?

I think there's an opportunity for Apple, given that there are few quality TV brands left, specially now that they have to be smart.

But its quite pointless if you can believe this graph :

At a normal distance of 10+ feet you need a 80+" screen to be able to notice the extra resolution.
Actually the importance of the graph is on the left side where with higher resolution you can get closer to the screen. The farther away your are the less the effect is noted. It's when you get close that resolution really makes a difference. What I think these higher and higher resolution screens will actually offer is moving towards interactive walls in small office or apartments where multiple "windows" can be manipulated around or the entire desk surface becomes a very high resolution desktop.

Let your imaginations run wild. 9'x5' tables where different people can be interacting, playing games, pushing images around ... in short being able to have a card table that becomes a backgammon table or wild video game all with a wave of the hand and the users are sitting at it only a foot or so away.
