How to Watch 4K Movies
09 Oct, 2015
There’s been a lot of buzz recently on 4K TVs. And with the new TV technology comes an upgraded experience for content viewing. The good news is that 4K content is becoming more readily available, both with streaming options on Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, DirectTV and more, and with 4K DVDs. Learn more about how to upgrade your 4K viewing experience below.
What’s the big deal about watching 4K movies?
First, to understand why you would want to watch 4K movies, you need to know the benefits of a 4K TV. With more pixels in the screen (FOUR times more than Full HD), you’ll get a higher and ultimately better display resolution. This gives you exceptional image details, so watching a 4K movie will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before. Prepare to have your mind blown!
To stream a 4K movie through services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime, you’ll simply need a 4K TV (Shop hhgregg’s large 4K TV selection to find the right one for you). However, to watch a 4K DVD, you’ll need a 4K DVD player. Besides offering more pixels, 4K DVDs feature expanded color, higher frame-rates, high dynamic range, greater capacity discs and enhanced audio. All these enhancements make for a unique 4K movie-viewing experience. hhgregg now carries a variety of 4K DVD players, such as the Samsung 4K 3D Wi-Fi Smart Blu-ray Player.
But wait, there’s more! With Wi-Fi capabilities, a 4K DVD player allows you to stream your favorite apps, play music on any compatible speaker in your home, browse your favorite websites on your TV screen, and share content from your phone or computer to your TV. And while a 4K DVD player allows you watch 4K DVDs with Ultra-HD quality, you can also watch traditional DVDs and Blu-ray discs!
