Can I watch a 4K video on a TV that does not support 4K?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

If you connect a 4K capable Blu-ray Disc® player to a TV that does not support 4K and play back a 4K movie, you may get an error message and no picture will be displayed. The 4K device must be connected to a TV that can support 4K resolution.

NOTE: Not all Blu-ray Disc players can output 4K resolution. To see if your Blu-ray Disc player can output 4K resolution, check the specifications. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
