4K TV, the 3840 x 2160 pixel technology that blew everyone away at CES this year, is still a glimmer in most of the world’s collective eye. Japan, however, could get 4K broadcasts via satellite as soon as 2014, thereby pushing the state-of-the-art forward at a speed nearly unprecedented in the TV industry.

According to Asahi Times, the Japanese Internal Affairs and Communications department will transmit a 4K broadcast of the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The service will use Japan’s communications satellites rather than its standard broadcast satellites.

Sony and others have announced 4K sets and prices are around $25,000, which could put a damper on your World Cup Japanese Beer Blast And 4K TV And Chicken Wing Party – unless you have the cash to slap 8 million pixels on your living room wall.
