if nothing else, there will be HDCP downgrade units. a downgrade unit wouldn't actually be circumventing DRM and thusly still be legal. however, without significant influx 4k content or a considerable boost in GPU speed, i think we will be maxed out at 1080p for at least the rest of the decade.

Will they ever learn? By now we could all have had a Content Box (tm) paying $10 a month to watch any TV show or movie ever made. Instead, we have the content industry investing billions into making better shackles and electronic jails.

Isn't Netflix streaming still $7.99 a month? Plus plenty of inexpensive ARM powered player boxes to choose from.
