Samsung announces 4K content deal with 20th Century Fox, Netflix and Amazon

Samsung is aggressively pushing its line of 4K TVs, but has found little success thus far. One of the main reasons for this is the dearth of original 4K content. Samsung is looking to fix that by offering a hard drive that comes pre-loaded with 4K movies. The UHD Video Pack is a $300 1 TB hard drive that comes with 4K versions of five Hollywood movies: The Counselor, Night At The Museum, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and World War Z. In addition, Samsung has also announced that it has signed a licencing deal with 20th Century Fox to bring original 4K content to Samsung UHD TVs using the SmartHub platform.

Along with Fox, Samsung has also inked deals with Netflix, M-Go and Amazon. Through this deal, it is likely that streaming 4K content will be delivered directly to Samsung’s UHD line of TVs. Kyungshik Lee, Senior VP of the Service Strategy Team of Visual Display Business for Samsung said that such deals were the best way to push more 4K content to its 4K TVs. “Our strategic partnership with 20th Century Fox is a great example of how the industry is working towards bringing UHD content to end-consumers in the most efficient way while accelerating our ability to provide a full UHD ecosystem.”

If by future you mean 15 or 20 years then sure. I have in fact seen one and had pre-ordered the Sony uhd when it released last year as the first commercial launch, and promptly returned it. Like I stated above the simple fact is the technology is no where near 1080p being the standard broadcast…in fact the president of Sony pictures, dish network and time Warner have all stated that 4k is not even a plan in the next 20 years. Not to mention that I returned the 60 inch uhd because there is t nothing to date that can even show 4k. movies, tv, or cable. So in your little mind it’s the prospective future except the reality is well have 4k about the time I get a holodeck

Are you guys for real? UHD is the future. You obvious haven’t seen one up close. With your minds, people would still be listening to radio for entertainment.

Wow 5 of the worst movies of the last 20 years can be yours to watch in pain staking clarity for just 300 dollars…on top of a TV that is several thousand more than a regular 1080p TV, offering ever so slightly sharper content mainly in the store when compared to regular hd tvs running up scaled 720p.…4k TV…one the most useless advances in tech when 99% of the world is broadcast between 480p and 720p “hd”…and most homes are just finally starting to get hd tvs
