About time. Now, 4K TV's will actually become viable.

(And, just for old time's sake: I'd like to add that this is just another good reason why we should all be grateful HD DVD was put out of its misery, years ago.)

I hope 4K Blu-ray players and movies arrive by the end of 2015, however there are normally delays when launching a new upgrade to a existing format. The year 2016 might be more realistic for a launch of a new 4K optical disc format.

And we probably still will not any time soon phase out low-def dvds.
HDTVs are at a high saturation rate and the price of a low-end player is sub~$30 or so.
The only semi-valid complaint I have heard about Blu is that the movies that come out are more expensive. Well, often times they're $5 more but if they omit the dvd that comes packed in it, could make them the same price.

4K Blu-ray players will be capable of extracting data at rates around 50 and 60 megabits per second with possible support for rates as high as 100Mbps.

Well so much for high quality 4K content on a disc format. Even with the new codec, those bitrates are quite low for 4K content. I have 125Mbps demo footage, and it still looks like it needs higher bitrates to truly refine the content.

Eh that's what they said until VC-1 could do movies under 20mbps that looked good. I'll withhold judgment until the final product.

Oh wait, he's not in charge anymore right?
