A single HDMI-cable cannot quite handle 8K video. Enter the USB type C cable.

Simple, inexpensive and able to handle 8K video.

Set top boxes with DisplayPort 1.4 will be able to stream 8K video at 60fps and support HDR 5K and 8K

It'll be a while before set top boxes, laptops and graphic cards ship with a DisplayPort 1.4.

But when they'll do, connecting them to the tvs and monitors will be easy as pie. A new USB type C cable will do the trick nicely.
