At this point I wouldn't trust anyone's prediction about any part of 2023.

I think 8k can but consumers will have to show their love for 4k first...just like they did with HD.

I believe 8K will be adapted by those who held out on going 4K, only because they will not have to forgo the expense of additional components ie 8K disc players etc.
I upgrade to 4K OLED and a new OPPO 4K disc player and I don't see the significance to repeat the process again, only to be able up-convert to 4K. Broadcasters will take a long time upgrading their systems to accommodate 8K.
IMO

I don't see the adoption of 8K TVs anywhere near what UHD/4K accomplished simply because there is no plan for 8K content like there was for 4K content (Netflix/Prime and UHD-Blu-ray).

Very curious to see what happens when the OEM TV manufacturers realize no one is buying their 8K TVs. As I have stated in the past, they have the patience level of a three year old. Only this time they have nothing in the wings if 8K TVs don't make them the profits they want.

More resolution on a bigger display IMO isn't going to be enough of a draw to get people to step up to an 8K TV. What they need to do is make their 8K TVs with BETTER pixels, not more. Got to get the nits up to 4000. Got to have 12 bit panels. Got to get the color gamut up to 95% of Rec 2020. And somehow convince people they need high frame rates - at least when there is motion on the display. Use the AI to add HFR only when motion exceeds a certain level or the camera is quickly panning. THAT would make a HUGE difference in the images being displayed.

I believe the early adaptors will be of the "cost is no problem", crowd, purchasers of very large panels 77" and up. I know I have no interest in them.
