New Pre-loaded Samsung UHD Video Pack to Showcase Blockbuster Films

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (January 6, 2014) – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, and Paramount Pictures today announced an alliance that will invigorate a growing UHD market. Samsung is releasing a UHD Video Pack that will come pre-loaded with UHD-quality content, including handpicked feature films from Paramount Pictures. Consumers can effortlessly access this content at home to gain access to blockbuster films and classics that are more detailed than ever before. UHD delivers four times the resolution of Full HD, making the viewing experience clearer and more vivid.

“We are delighted to work with Samsung to showcase the sensational capabilities of their UHD TVs,” said Amy Reinhard, executive vice president and general manager of Paramount Home Media Distribution. “This is a terrific opportunity for consumers to truly experience the superior picture quality of UHD with some of our most popular films.”

“Paramount Pictures is the gateway to many of the best films of our time,” said Kyungshik Lee, Senior Vice President of the Service Strategy Team of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to deliver these memorable films to our UHD TV customers, giving them the chance to rediscover their favorite scenes with stunning clarity.”

The Samsung UHD Video Pack will come bundled with the blockbuster films Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, the global hit World War Z, the thrill-packed action-adventure G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and the beloved classic Forrest Gump, winner of six Academy Awards®, including Best Picture. Scheduled to start shipping in the spring, Samsung’s UHD Video Pack will easily connect to compatible Samsung UHD TVs for spectacular 4K viewing. Users will also be able to download new UHD content as it becomes available.

As more and more movies are seen in 4K, the push would be there to help push more 4K TV's out the door.

Plus, that would help to lower prices as well.

Main:
Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Wii U Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Sub

So how exactly is the "Video Pack" content delivered? Since there hasn't been an announcement yet from Sony regarding Blu-Ray support for UHD is Samsung/Paramount setting up some sort of streaming service?

I agree, if this is a streamed format I cant see how they will have a high enough bandwidth to deliver it without loads of compression. If its some sort of download that could take a very long time to DL

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900
