4K ULTRA HD CONTENT HAS ARRIVED

You don't have to look very far to find 4K content with High Dynamic Range (HDR). Invest in a 4K Blu-ray player to watch 4K content on Blu-ray, stream video in 4K using a Smart TV, or check out the 4K content provided by your cable and satellite company. In addition, 4K cameras and camcorders let you create your own stunning 4K videos. Watching all this content on an HDR television can create a truly cinematic experience right in your own living room.

4K Blu-ray Players and Movies

Play a growing list of available 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs using a 4K Blu-ray player paired with a 4K Ultra HD TV. Since the content doesn't have to be compressed to travel over the Web, your TV can reach its top picture potential. Plus, you don't have to rely on extra high-bandwidth and a stable Internet connection to watch a movie. Since the 4K Blu-ray player is backwards compatible, you can continue to watch your older Blu-ray discs and DVDs utilizing a UHD upscaling feature, so the content looks better than ever before.

You can even experience the stunning quality of 4K Blu-ray discs on some gaming consoles.

4K Streaming Media Players
and Apps

Choose a 4K Ultra HD streaming media player to deliver content to your 4K UHD TV using available 4K apps. Each streaming player makes it easy to navigate to your favorite apps via an intuitive on-screen menu. Or use the voice search functionality available on most players to find just what you want to watch.

You can even use some of the latest gaming consoles as 4K streaming media players.

4K streaming apps like Netflix, YouTube, FandangoNOW and many more offer a growing library of movies and TV series in 4K, including Netflix's House of Cards and Breaking Bad. You can watch on a streaming media player or on your Smart TV, which has the apps built in.
