Data demands But to see the full picture, some viewers may need to shell out for pricier broadband plans to handle data-intensive 4K streams. Netflix, for example, is encoding “House of Cards” to stream at 15.6 megabits per second – more than double the 7 megabits per second it uses for HD. YouTube is working a 4K streaming technology that may cut that in half. Still, Phillip Swann , president and CEO of TV industry news site TVPredictions.com, said people may remain skeptical after all the 3-D hype. “For three years, TV makers tried to persuade consumers that they had to have a 3-D TV,” Swann said in a recent post. “But people didn’t care about 3-D TV and they became weary of the TV makers trying to shove it down their throats.

Revenue rose 2.5 percent to $7.57 billion in the fourth quarter, below the analysts’ average estimate of $7.71 billion.

Hardly anyone makes it at home, so its a huge crowd pleaser, she says. Shopping in bulk at Costco or Sams Club is also a good idea for a larger crowd, Scott says, as is venturing into different neighborhoods to look for deals.
