Actually, 4k is available from streaming even if cable doesn't support its.  Also, any IP TV distribution system like U-Verse could support 4k right now because channels feeds are stream instead of broadcast, so they have plenty of bandwidth for it.   4k will be adopted because its relevant on screens bigger than 40".   Any big screen TV will look better in 4k than HD. 4k is also relevant in PC monitors, you get retina on PC's at 4k resolution. 4k is getting available on...

Once I started using the NFC chip on my MasterCard (PayPass), I could not stop using it. When I go fill the car tank on a windy day at -20, tapping the card on the pump and start filling up is very convenient. I used that thing all the time now.   I could see myself using Apple pay all the time too,  over 95% of terminals here in Montreal supports NFC.   Now imagine with the Apple watch, nothing to take out, just tap the watch and you're done. Now if Apple could only...
Then ESPN could be a special channel like HBO that cannot be pick-up with a la carte bundles...  the way it works here is we have a list of channels we can choose a la carte.

Something I would like to see on itunes is resolution upgrades for movies and TV series.  For example, if you have a SD movie, +$5 for HD and +$10 for 4k.

Well we can choose normal channels but not pay TV like HBO or some sports channels. Those are still on packages. We also need to get base channels before we can choose, the base package is around $20 I think. Then we buy "package" of a la carte channels, something lilke $20 for 15 channels or $25 for 30 channels, ...So you can get the base package and 15 channels of your choice for $40 / month plus taxes
