4K Streaming from Sony to Get Underway in a While

April 1, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Putting off the decision to purchase a 4K TV set due to lack of 4K broadcast? Well think again, and think again and again with Sony in mind. You might just be tempted to retract your decision if you are hungry to scribble off 4K Movie viewing off your bucket list.

The Japanese company have now officially announced that its 4K stream service, called Ultra, will commence during the first week of April, or on 4th to be precise, filling up the dried up space of 4K broadcast through the company’s 4K UHD TV units. This will include all the Android TVs that were released by Sony in the US with 4K compatibility.

Ultra, which made its debut at CES 2016 in January, will bring a collection of movies that include library titles and also new releases. Titles will be available for purchase from the stores at $30 each. Users can get the rates cut off if they already own the HD version of the titles in the Sony Store.


Some of the titles mentioned by Sony are Concussion, The Night Before, The Walk, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and Ghostbusters. The collection currently includes only those movies that are studio-owned. Around 50 movies will be available at the time of launch, following which the library will go through a gradual expansion.

The expansion will also include addition of TV shows like Blacklist season 2 and the final season of Breaking Bad. The titles are expected to get launched by early summer with a dual-pricing system based on per-episode prices and per-season prices.

Sony has not mentioned whether the titles will be available for rent, including the movie titles that will be available next month.
