Amazon Basics 10.2 Gbps High-Speed 4K HDMI CableNow that I know fiber optic Internet is coming to my neighborhood, I’m having visions of all the cool things I’ll be able to do with new-found speed. One of those is streaming 4K video. Today I’ll talk about an important component for making that happen. Yes, I get a tiny commission if you buy something with the Amazon links provided. You get the same great prices. No, I didn’t get any freebies.

Looking at an HDMI cable, it seems they are all the same. But between the connectors, there are variations from the early days until now. Those variations control whether or not the cable your are using supports some of the latest and greatest features. The cable I’ve linked supports Ethernet, 3D, 4K video, and Audio Return Channel (ARC).

So if you are still using an HDMI cable that hasn’t been upgraded in years, you should consider getting the Amazon Basics 10.2 Gbps High-Speed 4K HDMI Cable. It comes in different colors and different lengths so the perfect cable for you is available. Swap our your cables with this one and you’ll be ready to watch 4K video when it is available to you and your devices support it. Yes, there will likely be a new flavor of cable in a few more years that does even more. Thankfully these cables are fairly inexpensive so you can easily upgrade all your HDMI cables.
