Re: Waste of bandwidth without content
Which is exactly what everyone said in 1998 when we were installing $20,000 plasma screens in rich people's houses.
Give it time, it has to start somewhere.

It should start with Bluray 4K.
The problem is that the 4K generation of TV's is also the generation where physical media goes into decline. Besides, it's a lot quicker to use some extra bandwidth on your existing system than wait for a new 4K Blu Ray standard, and then wait for others to manufacture the players and discs. It's more of a proof-of-concept at this point than a serious, commercial venture.
By the way, Blu Ray was a bit late to the HD party, too.

I fully expect there to be yet another BluRay standard. By count, there's already no less than five revisions of the standard for different things/reasons.
3.0 was basically made for effectively "BluRay audio" - music discs on BluRay. And of course, the only player out there that supports this standard is the PlayStation3. 3D BluRay is done in Profile 5.0 if I remember correctly.
Because, f*ck Sony
