Sony Doubles Video Unlimited 4K Download Titles7 Jan, 2014 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Sony Electronics Jan. 6 said it has doubled to 140 the number of 4K titles available for rent or purchase since launching its Video Unlimited 4K download service last September.
In pre-International Consumer Electronics Show release, Sony said it continues to grow the library of feature films, independent productions and television episodes available for rent or download on a Sony 4K Ultra-HD media player and Sony 4K Ultra-HDTV.
Available now on the service is the AMC Network TV show “Breaking Bad,” as well as previously announced movies Elysium, After Earth, and This Is the End, among others. In 2014, pending new releases include Captain Phillips with Tom Hanks and American Hustle with Jennifer Lawrence. Select purchased titles also include an UltraViolet digital version of the movie or TV show.
"It may be cliché to say content is king, but when talking about 4K Ultra-HD TV, it reigns over consumer decision-making," Mike Lucas, SVP of Sony Electronics' home entertainment & sound division, said in a statement.
