    merica loves 4K. We love it so much that 4K Ultra HD televisions will make up half of all total digital displays sold this year in the United States. That’s why DISH is working hard to get more 4K content into customers’ homes as it becomes available – so you can maximize the potential of your TV.

    As part of this effort, DISH is adding EPIX’s 4K UHD movies to its on-demand programming lineup, becoming the first pay-TV provider to roll out this new offering.

    If you’re a DISH customer subscribing to EPIX, you can now access select Hollywood movies in 4K UHD directly on your set-top box including, Arrival, The Magnificent Seven, Star Trek Beyond and Transformers: The Last Knight and, coming later this year, films from the James Bond franchise, including Die Another Day, Goldeneye, License To Kill, Tomorrow Never Dies, Goldfinger, From Russia With Love and The Spy Who Loved Me.

    Or unlimited internet with no caps. Streaming 4K takes a lot of bandwidth.

    UHD TVs are more than half the market?

    That’s because that’s pretty much all that’s offered in medium and large TVs. It’s not due to customer demand.

    Exactly what I thought. I had to help my parents get a new TV after their 10+ year old one bit the dust. Everything was 4K in the 55"+ range. No choice but to get one. So why not?

    I’m just happy to have a source of 4K programming other than Netflix. It will give me a chance to make a run at my 1 tb cap.

    I was lucky in that Comcast finally made to the neighborhood and I could dump the DSL line I had. Said to say, but at this time you need 25 mbps to enjoy 4K.

    Does this require HDR? I tried to download a couple of movies to try out, but it says my TV is not compatible with the 4K resolution. My UHD TV does not have HDR.

    I had the HDR turned off the first 15 minutes of Star Trek Beyond and didn’t seem to make any difference as far as playback was concerned.

    They don't mention HDR in any of the press releases.

    Well, to be fair, I should note the Quora post was from last year... Technology marches on!

    Edit, well, the RED Monstro camera body is over $54K for an 8K sensor, so I shudder to think what a higher-res camera will cost...
