Well, if you have $15,000 and the space for an 85" screen! https://www.avsforum.com/samsung-8k-q900r-qled-tv-ships-october-28/
What a strange time we live in, when the hardware is far ahead of content.

I've got the space but 75" would be the limit in terms of architecture and room balance - probably update my Samsung 65" later this year. What I would really like is a 75" 4k monitor, no smarts, no tuner or sound. I have all the rest in my Beyonwiz PVR (4 tuners) and Popcorn A-500 media player plus my collection of DVD's and Blu ray on the NAS. I really think there is a market for a dumb but high quality monitor at TV prices.... certainly in Australia as we seem to be very early uptakers of new technology. All the CRT's are well and truly landfill down here...BeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
8K adaptation is limited mostly by display technology - or some company will create cheap technology for large format printable OLED.
Why OLED ? - it is hard to me imagine any other than OLED technology where display can be printed on relatively cheap and flexible substrate (imagine wallpaper being able to display 8K).
Why wallpaper ? - reasonable screen size to utilize 8K should be over 100 inch (around 125 - 150 at least) - alternatively to OLED i can imagine beamers however IMHO only laser beamers can deliver required brightness, contrast and resolution with sane power consumption - decent 4K laser beamer cost around 10k $ and high end consumer is around 25k $ - i do not expect 8K to be significantly cheaper (in large scale) due serious amount of effort desired to create decent optics for 4K/8K laser beamer.
8K also mean different approach to watching TV (screen such size assume full immersion - no more borders without signal - picture is bigger than normal view area).
btw i saw few times 8K live and i truly believe that this is future consumer standard and since moment i've saw 8K i consider 4K as intermediate format.
FullHD is enough quality, for every day use.... You need high end equipment to even work with 4K and in the mean time most hardware is getting cheaper, because "something new" came out.. i guess BlackMagic Raw will be a game changer...
I don't even give a shit about Blu ray.
8K seems (as already mentioned here) way overkill for domestic home, better for large commercial displays or something maybe.
But yes we are in a medium-less world, everything streaming & digital etc.
