The 1 terabyte hard drive comes preloaded with movies, but more titles will be available for download later this year through Samsung’s internet service.

Samsung also says that they will update the Netflix app in its 2013 and 2014 Smart TVs to support 4K streaming from Netflix. They expect the update to roll out this March. Netflix will start streaming in 4K in the “first half of 2014” with HEVC encoding and a 15.6 Mb/s bitrate.

The UHD Starter Pack will be available in March 2014 together with Samsung’s 2014 TVs.
