It's not the TV that is the problem, it's the signal.

Most (all?) HD programming from cable/satellite is compressed, so you're not even getting full 1080 at home unless you're using an over the air antenna. The level of compression varies on the provider and channel. (Edit: I know some streaming services like Netflix have 4k content).

I haven't looked because I don't care, but I think there's little-to-none 4k content offered by TV providers right now. That's why there are no sports (or any other broadcast TV) in the showrooms. Playing a looped demo video from a blu-ray or media server is going to be the only realistic way to make it look as good as it can. They can also choose content that really makes the visuals pop as well.
