Re: 2018
I feel the same way! I think it would be awesome if they were able to adapt into that so quickly, but I don't know if it's possible? Maybe..

Re: 2018
@Adi - I would imagine "widely adopted" means more along the lines of available and affordable to the consumer, moreso than actually being used in homes. People may replace TVs with a frequency I don't understand, but most can't afford to replace TVs even as often as they do cell phones.

Re: Lagging adoption...
@mhhf1veI think you are right as investing in UHD would make sense... as consumers market do lag a little bit for now...

Getting your HDR approach right
There's also a potential backlash, to Thierry's point. If they confuse consumers with the introduction of HDR, and its looking like that is going to happen, then there will be people who buy a new TV, only to find that HLG-based HDR is launched later in the year and its a better experience. That's going to frustrate a lot of people.

Re: 2018
@afwriter - I guess it depends on your definition of "widely adopted." Retailers are moving UHD TVs today, and that will pick up. That's largely because people want to buy the most advanced TVs when they go shopping. The same happened with connected TV's, where penetration ramped up really quickly, but usage took a lot longer. That's because people were just buying high-end TVs and they happened to be connected. So I do think we'll get a lot of UHD TVs in US homes. How much actual UHD content reaches those Tvs, I don't know. That's still very much TBD.

Re: Lagging adoption...
@mhhf1ve - The four major US broadcast networks (ABC, NBC, CBS & FOX) are still the most important channels in terms of viewership, but I think now cable networks (taken as a whole) now account for more viewers. So it's not absolutely essential for the broadcast networks to lead the UHD transition. In practical terms though, it's likely they will get on board since they have the most "premium" content". 

They do tend to be slower to adopt new technologies, and were pushed into HD broadcasts after multiple delays in 2002 by Michael Powell, who at the time was the chairman of the FCC. HD was led by the electronics manufacturers, who got TVs and Blu-ray DVDs into US homes, which then got the satellite providers and some cable operators on board. And then content came last, though there were early movers - Discovery, in particular and some shows from the broadcasters, like the Tonight Show.

Pretty sure the UHD transition will follow the same route.

Lagging adoption...
I'd think that maybe TV broadcasting stations would have to invest heavily in UHD before we see UHD in the mainstream? Or do TV broadcasters lag the consumer market? I don't think so..? I thought TV broadcasters offered HDTV before the majority of Americans had HDTV-capable TVs... But I might be wrong about that.
