Sony has already revealed that they intend to create a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1357669918><b>4K movie service</b></a>. The Verge now reports that the service will also be part of Sony’s <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/focus.php?subaction=showfull&id=1361428346><b>PlayStation 4</b></a> offerings. The movie service is expected to launch this summer. Movies will exceed 100 GB in size, says Sony.<br /><br /><h3>Sony's 4K movie service will work on PS4</h3>There will be plenty of movies in 4K resolution to choose from in the market as most movies have been shot in resolutions above 4K. It just requires a short trip back into the studios. However, it will not solve the problem of distributing 4K content to consumers’ living rooms.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/sonyx900-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/sonyx900-1.jpg" alt="Sony X900" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Sony plans to open a 4K movie service this summer that will feed the coming Ultra HD TVs</i></p><br />Therefore, Sony intends to create an internet service that can distribute 4K movies via downloads. Sony has not shared all the details yet but says that we should expect 4K movies to exceed 100 GB in size. But Sony also says that they are hoping to reduce that with new, more effective compression formats.<br /><br />The movie service can be accessed from Sony’s Ultra HD TVs but it will also be part of the PlayStation 4 network, according to Sony. You obviously still need an Ultra HD TV to enjoy the movies.<br /><br />The plans have been shared by Sony’s Phil Molyneux who is in charge of development of the service. Molyneux also reiterates what Sony CEO, Kaz Hirai, <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1358237107><b>said earlier</b></a>: Sony believes that the world is moving towards internet distribution instead of physical media distribution via for example Blu-ray.<br /><br />Sony expects to launch the 4K movie service this summer. It will be available in the US but no words on other regions so far.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://www.theverge.com/2013/2/28/4040932/sony-4k-movie-service-will-work-with-ps4-require-100gb-plus-downloads target=_blank>The Verge</a></i>
