UltraFlix launches 4k titles for Roku 4 players
Roku 4 owners now have another alternative for Ultra HD content with the launch of 4k titles on UltraFlix. The app channel, available on the Roku platform, is called UltraFlix 4k and will only deliver 4k titles on Roku 4 streaming media players. Hit films now available include GI Joe, Gladiator, Mission Impossible, Star Trek, The Godfather, The Terminator, Transformers, and World War Z among others.
UltraFlix calls their channel “The world’s largest selection of 4K Content,” with native 4k digital titles as well as titles that went through a 4k film scanning process from Nanotech’s 4K Studios. The films come from several studios including Paramount Pictures, Magnolia, MGM, Millennium, and Warner Bros., as well as a few documentary titles from IMAX.
Movie titles can be purchased or rented from the UltraFlix app on Roku 4. Rental prices start at $1.99 and go up to $9.99, while purchased titles range from $9.99 to $24.99. Content purchased from UltraFlix will also stream in HD, but the app channel currently has only one set price for each title.
For TV, UltraFlix is adding shows from A&E Networks, as well as time-lapse motion art from independent producers. (Their website is currently in the process of updating with additional titles.)
The UltraFlix 4k service is only available for customers in the US.
