Read this: BBC uses RIPA terrorism laws to catch TV licence fee dodgers in Northern Ireland
Summary: quotA lack of transparency, accountability and oversight of how these powers are used has allowed the use of the powers to reach unacceptable levels. A BBC spokesman said quotLegislation explicitly grants the BBC the right to use these powers to detect unlicensed use of television receivers. We're regularly inspected by independent regulators and have always been open about using this power when there is no other option to help reduce evasion on behalf of the vast majority of the population who pay for their licence. - www.belfasttelegraph.co.ukwww.belfasttelegraph.co.ukBBC uses RIPA terrorism laws to catch TV…

geoffrey o'neill: I'm sorry, but your mistaken. No matter how good the potential source (and yes, you might be able to stream 4K content at a fast enough speed via the Panasonic app, although the content is hardly exciting), your panel is equally important.
You have an HD TV. Your screen resolution is 1920 x 1080. Thats it. You've got just over 2m pixels. But UHD TV's use a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution (as I explained before and is pointed out here - What is 4K TV and Ultra HD? Everything you need to know - Opinion - Trusted Reviews )
Thats over eight million pixels. So your trying to show 8m pixels on a 2m screen. Thats not UHD, although it will look good. Both source and panels have to be UHD. I could claim that if I could get an HD feed into my CRT TV, then I'm watching HD. I cant. The best I can do is to watch stuff on BBC1 originally filmed in HD and then broadcast in a resolution my TV can handle - SD.
I'm not sure who told you you could watch 4K on an HD screen, but they are wrong. Brianist wrote a page about the various levels of screen resolution here: A comparison of TV, HDTV and computer monitors
Perhaps an update to include 4K would be helpful.

jb38: JSTV (Japan Satellite TV) is based in London and rebroadcasts to UK and Europe a selection of programmes from Japanese TV networks. Has been doing this since analogue satellite days and is currently digital on Hotbird 12597 MHz. Also on some cable networks. Recently started IPTV to PCs and appears to be coming to Freeview 246 also via IP. Aimed at Japanese ex-pats willing to pay a relatively high monthly subscription. NHK news broadcasts are in the clear on Hotbird but almost everything else is encrypted. www.jstv.co.uk/english
