Vizio announced its new P series of 4K TVs a few days ago. Vizio’s TVs will offer Netflix in 4K, but another 4K service will also be available by the holidays. UltraFlix has just been confirmed.
UltraFlix on Vizio’s 4K TVs
Vizio’s new 4K TVs have support for HEVC decoding, which is required to stream in 4K from most services. UltraFlix also uses HEVC to stream movies, documentaries and TV series in 4K resolution. The bitrate is “under 8 Mb/s”.
UltraFlix has “more than 400 hours of 4K content, including 40 made-for-IMAX theatrical titles. Users will also be able to experience a wide selection of action/thriller, comedy, drama and family movies as well as breath-taking extreme sports videos, concerts, TV shows and moving murals plus 100 hours of free content.”
