      Answer

      Several TV manufacturers started building 4K TVs before the standards were finalized. They assumed that they could update their UHD TVs with firmware once the standards were finalized. Unfortunately, the standard for HDCP (4K TVs require HDCP2.2) also requires a hardware upgrade, thus the reason so many 4K TV have been reduced in price because they were built to a lesser standard and can never view a 4K program that requires the HDCP2.2 standard.

        Not by itself! You still need a 4K TV and a 4K source. If you have that then this HDMI cable should be able to handle the transmission of the signal between the source and the TV. There is a lot of debate about is there really any difference in HDMI cables... but there are some more advanced specs and newer cables that are labeled high speed or ultra high speed - supposedly tested to assure you that it can handle the increased data volumes at the necessary speed to support 4K.

        Resolution...no. The ability to display at a certain resolution from source...yes. For example, for a 4K signal to display on a 4K TV, the cable must be able to have sufficient bandwidth and transmission speed to display. These specifications will be listed in the hardware user manuals. Another watch out...although a "cheaper" cable may state it meets a certain specification, I have often been disappointed. Go with a brand that is tried and true, otherwise, you may get what you paid for. YMMV.

        Yes. This cable is required to allow the extra data that 4K has to be transmitted. Without it you can't get true 4K definition.
