Correct me if I'm wrong, but neither Blu-Ray nor broadcast cable can support resolutions like this, can they? So why would I want to buy a set that has nothing to 'feed' it?
This. At such a resolution, even the best satellite channels that hit up to 20 mbit/s would look like crap, BDs wouldn't have the capacity to store a whole movie without turning down the bitrate so much that all the extra pixels are wasted on artifacts, and internet streaming just plain sucks at any high resolution unless you have FTTH or something.
