Google Play Movies & TV Gets 4K HDR Streaming Support
Recently, Google officially released 4K movies on Play Movies & TV, and now the company has also added video streaming support of 4K HDR movies. If you visit Google Play Movies, you will now see options for the selected movie to be purchased or a streaming on TV that supports these feature.
To be able to stream 4K HDR video on Google Play Movies, you will need a compatible HDR television and a Chromecast Ultra dongle. HDR will not be enabled on SD or HD videos.
Nothing more needs to be done by the user, if both the 4K UHD title is being selected and the television support HDR.
The HDR feature is being enabled via support from two major studio partners, Sony and Warner Bros., the company says. The newest movie in the Harry Potter franchise, “Fantasy Beasts and Where to Find Them,” will be among the first to be available in HDR. At launch, there’s only a small handful of HDR movies available – around a dozen titles, says Google.
4K UHD (or Ultra High Definition) is a quality of video that is even higher than HD, with sharper images. Compared to HD quality (1920 x 1080 pixels), 4K UHD has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. This means that the image will be sharper than HD.
