Samsung recently announced that its Netflix 4K streaming will arrive to the United Kingdom in a couple of months. The company will offer 4K starter pack, which is usable for its 4K TV sets. There have been talks that the lack of real 4K content has put consumers off from making a hefty upgrade. It is hoped that the company’s relationship with Netflix and its new 4K initiative will help consumers to change their mind. The starter pack is built around a 1TB hard drive that contains fifty high-resolution 4K movies. Users could store further movies on the drive by downloading.
TV makers are saying that the 2014 will surely be the year when UHD TV really emerges. Samsung predicts that sales of 4K TV may surpass the one million mark. The figure may rise to 3.3 million units by 2017.
A senior Samsung employee in Europe said that the company wants to make sure that consumers have steady access to reliable 4K content. Samsung will offer a 360-degree Ultra HD solution. This includes the 4K video pack and constant 4K stream from Netflix, starting from March. Among movies included with these films are Star Trek and Life of Pi.
