The words Fox and News should be banned from being put together.

It's still too expensive for most people, and will be for a few years. I'm happy with 1080P, in fact I just got a new 42 inch LG 3D TV, it'll most likely be out of date by the time 4K comes into it's own. Remember too, 4K is going to suck down a TON of bandwidth, that will wreck havok with most people's home broadband connections and their caps, forget it on mobile with their puny caps and often overloaded networks.  

On the "we're at the very beginning of a mainstream transition from Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) to 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160, or 8.3 million pixels" thing, 99% of broadcast tv maxes at 1080i, first we need to get that to 1080P, then work on the 4K thing.

Apparently they don't even offer this in my area (Mendocino County, Northwestern California), our Staples is in Ukiah. We have service from AT&T, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, T-Mobile and Metro PCS though.

"The previous offer is not available for zip code 95470. This is our most popular package available for the Redwood Valley, CA area. Use the links below to see all available phones and carriers. Click here to change Zip Code."

The package it shows is the SIII, after trying to select the S4.

Well, making a transition to a new standard takes time, it was years, for example, before tv was broadcast in all color, with shows like the Munsters, which ran from 1964-66 being filmed and broadcast in all B&W (most people didn't know they were green until they made a couple of big screen movies).. By 1970 though, all tv (at least here in the US) was being broadcast in color.  1080P looks AMAZING to me, I've heard some reviewers of 4K and they say it's almost too real and clear, we want realism, not hyper-realism :)
