As a matter of fact, the sales of 4K TV sets are clearly increasing in Turkey like the rest of the world. Since the start of the year around 100K 4K TVs have been sold on the market but only a minorty of them have embedded sateliite tuner. Besides, as of today there is no commercial offering of 4K services by any of Pay-TV operators. Considering all these, unfortunately there will only a limited number of households those will have the opportunity to benefit of this. But still it’s strong indicator that 4K service will be presents in 2016.
