Thanks to gaming creators gaining mainstream popularity and the gaming industry itself developing some of the best immersive games, 4K content has become a norm as opposed to being a premium format limited to only a few devices. Gaming enthusiasts and content creators in general benefit from the extra details provided by a 4K display and the rise of 4K content on OTT platforms is a cherry on the check.
