To 4K or Not To 4K?

From what I've heard, the answer is To Not 4K...

I go around John Lewis, looking at what's on offer, and it's all the latest 4K stuff with recorded Alpine vistas and slow scans across incredibly detailed panoramic vistas. But the big five channels are only upgrading to 4K at the end of March, and the others simply aren't and it seems that ordinary channels like Drama or True Entertainment show a just awful picture, worse than any five-year-old Panasonic Viera flatscreen. It looks like its been beamed in from a Romanian channel using an early 80s receiver bought from Del Boy.

I simply cannot see how or why anyone would spend nearly a grand on a set like this, unless you are only watching the main channels and your Blu Rays. Is it right that you're best getting just Hi Def for the time being? I never thought it would be this hard to fork out for a satisfactory telly, though I don't know, maybe it isn't? I just never see a telly where the picture looks right across the board, only when it's set up to a BBC1 HD or on a prerecord.
