A thrill to behold: 4K Ultra HD.
Introducing the world's first in-home media player to bring you 4K Hollywood hit movies. Four times clearer than HD, Sony's Video Unlimited 4K service allows you to rent or purchase feature films, TV shows, documentaries and more. The 4K Ultra HD Media Player comes preloaded with over 50 free videos, and a free download of the summer blockbuster Elysium, featuring Matt Damon and Jodi Foster.
4K Ultra HD video service.
Video Unlimited 4K is the world's first and only network video service that gives you access to a regularly updated library of full-length feature films and TV shows in 4K Ultra HD right in your living room. With over 100 titles to choose from, including some of this summer's big hits, you'll have a wide selection of choices to download for rent or purchase. And at four times the picture quality of regular HD, the movies you love can be watched in the same stunning clarity and big-screen brilliance as at the movie theater.
Maintaining the look and feel.
No two movies look exactly the same – nor should they. That's why experts from Sony Pictures were brought on to ensure Sony's 4K Ultra HD meticulously maintains the individual look and feel of every movie it presents. From the super smooth, action packed sequences of newer films shot digitally like Total Recall or The Amazing Spider-Man™ to older movies shot with film featuring varying levels of grain or grittier detail that set the tone and add texture, every filmmaker's unique cinematic vision can be seen exactly the way it was intended.
Artfully restored. Beautifully remastered.
Anything and everything fully restored or remastered on Sony's Video Unlimited 4K service is carefully overseen by the expert artists and technicians leading the industry at the Sony Pictures Colorworks facility. Classics like Lawrence of Arabia have been fully restored and will continue to stand the test of time thanks to their diligent work using state-of-the-art technology to maintain its authenticity. Their extra care and attention to detail also ensures newer releases like Elysium can be presented in your home in the same unbelievable clarity enjoyed by moviegoers worldwide. And for the first time ever, rabid fan favorite Breaking Bad will be presented in breathtaking 4K clarity, exclusively on Sony's Video Unlimited 4K service.
4K your way – rent or buy.
In addition to the preloaded videos, feature films will be available to download for rent or purchase through the Video Unlimited 4K service. 24 hour rentals start at $7.99, and purchases start at $29.99.
