Ultra HD Blu-ray? It’s not there yet but the UHD TVs are! So how do we get our 4K movies? By far, the best available way to get 4K video on that screen is with streaming and, now,downloading.
Western Digital has a Vidity hard drive ready that is ready for storing Hollywood’s movies in the highest quality available, and playing them back on compatible screens. Right now the list of compatible devices is limited to Samsung’s UHD TVs (2014 or 2015) with the M-Go app, and Fox is the first studio out of the gate with compatible movies. WD’s $90 1TB, USB 3.0-connected My Passport Cinema drive meets the spec, is being packed in free with new Samsung TVs, and comes preloaded with The Maze Runner, Exodus: Gods and Kings, X-Men: Days of the Future Past, The Wolverine, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Fault in Our Stars, Let’s Be Cops and The Other Woman — two of them are free off the bat.
