Steal the deal! Sony bundles 4K Ultra HD Video Player with its 4K TVs
If you have been stunned by the incredible amount of resolution that Sony's 84-inch XBR-84X900 LED 4K TV brings along and fancy it in your living room, then you have more reasons to rejoice. Sony has announced that its 4K LED TV will now come bundled with a 4K Ultra HD Video Player. With this, Sony has put an end to all speculations that its 4K TVs will lack content to pair with its super powerful displays.
The Japanese electronics giant also disclosed that this is Sony's first step in delivering 4K Ultra HD video content right to the consumer's living rooms. The hard disc server will easily connect to the 4K LED TV and will pull movies and short form 4K videos in a new video format. Also, the buyers of "4K Ultra HD Home Experience" will receive an Xperia Tablet S, which will serve as a remote control.
To offer additional benefits to its customers, Sony is also preloading the video player with 10 full-length movies, including The Amazing Spiderman, Total Recall, The Other Guys, Salt, Taxi Driver, and The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Karate Kid, Bad Teacher, and more. Along with this, there will be a host of 4K video shorts, including "shorts from cool contributors like Red Bull Media House and others."
Though 4K TV is capable of scaling all video content, including more than 7,000 Blu-ray disc titles, to a near 4K resolution, the makers hope that the new video player will allow consumers to enjoy, theatre-like, true 4K Ultra HD videos on their TV sets.
There's an additional bonus to this deal. The 4K Ultra HD Video Player will be available on loan, exclusively to the U.S. customers, with the purchase of Sony 4K LED TV. However, there's no word on the price of the player or for how long the loan would be available.
Whether the 4K HD TVs will replace the LED and 3D TVs in days to come, is something we all need to look forward to.
