Ultra High Definition televisions were the talk of CES 2013, but praise of their unbridled clarity was met with condemnation over a lack of supporting content. After all, what's the point of spending tens of thousands on a television that's handicapped by a lack of supporting content?
So far Sony has announced its 84 inch UHD television will come with 10 or so UHD movies (in America), but apart from that, talk of UHD delivery methods have been fruitless. That's until we heard what the Japanese are working on.
Today the Japanese Internal Affairs and Communications (JIAC) announced it is studiously making preparations to broadcast 2014 World Cup matches in gloriously clear Ultra High Definition.

According to a report from the Asahi Times, the JIAC will be broadcasting the matches using its own communications satellites instead of broadcast satellites.
