A complete list of 600 new 4K UHD titles and 27 new HDR 4K titles being released by Amazon Prime

Stephan Jukic – February 29, 2016

Amazon is now getting very serious about 4K ultra HD content and their 2016 titles are filling out to create one very large, very diverse list of movie, TV show and Amazon Original series entertainment options.

We here at 4K.com have received word that 600 new 4K ultra HD titles that will be available to U.S and world customers in countries where 4K ultra HD streaming from Amazon Prime is supported. In addition to these, there will also be a release of 27 new 4K titles in HDR (high Dynamic Range) to Amazon Prime customers in the U.S only, at least for now.

In other words, both next generation and conventional SDR 4K content in the streaming market are now getting an enormous boost in selection and entertainment value, echoing recent announcements by Netflix that they would be doing the same thing for their own 4K and 4K HDR content selections in 2016.

Amazon’s new 4K HDR series will only be available to customers of the Prime subscription service who also own compatible 4K TVs with HDR compatibility built into them. These include some of Samsung’s top-shelf SUHD TVs like the JS8500, JS9000 and JS9500 as well as Sony’s 2015 X850C, X900C and X930/X940C 4K ultra HD TVs. Older 4K TVs without HDR and newer models without the expanded dynamic range technology will not be able to view Amazon’s content with HDR enabled on it.

Amazon’s 4K ultra HD subscription component of their Amazon Prime Instant Video service is available to customers in the U.S, U.K, Germany and Japan for now, with future plans to expand to other markets.

Readers interested in more information, subscription costs and in subscribing to Amazon’s massive Prime Instant Video service with all of its current and upcoming 4K ultra HD and HDR titles can do so through this link to the Prime page.

Here is a complete listing of all of Amazon’s new 4K HDR titles and below that, we offer up the complete list of Amazon 4K ultra HD content that’s coming in 2016. Once again, all HDR 4K titles will only be playable in high dynamic range on compatible 4K TVs or SMP devices.

    Really? No Tron or Tron Legacy scheduled for 4K or 4K HDR BluRay release? REALLY?!?!?! With the sheer lushness of rendering and particle details etc on Tron:Legacy, it’s annoyed me that my favourite films haven’t made the cut.

    Terrible…absolutely terrible.

      You do know that Tron was filmed with a Sony F35 camera at 1920×1080 resolution right?

      How do you expect to get native 4K from that?

          Most older celluloid movies lend themselves extremely well to upscaling to digital 4K or even much higher resolutions if the interest is there on some studio’s part. The 35 mm film used in many older movies, for example, can easily be converted to at least 20 million quality pixels and offers even more than this, which, obviously, is far beyond digital 4K resolution, (roughly equivalent to 8 megapixels).

            Tron Original was shot in 65mm Super PanaVision format, because 65mm film offers over two and a half times as much picture area as 35mm film, the format can provide significantly higher resolution and picture detail over the more traditional format. So the 20 million quality pixels Stephen quoted at 35mm film format is boosted to about 40 or 50 million pixels at 65mm format. Most cinematographers would agree that 65mm film has a minimum resolution of 8,000 vertical lines of pixels, commonly referred to as 8K. 35mm film has a minimum resolution of 4K.

            So it’s perfectly possible to provide a 4K print of the Tron Original film….such as a 4K print of ANY film that was shot on 35mm film (4k) / 65mm (8k) film and above (70mm film will provide about 9-10K). But then you’re also having to take into account other factors like film quality, lighting used in the film (natural and artificial), and, like still photography, glass quality in the lenses used on the film cameras.

            Excellent overview of the digital resolution equivalents of different film sizes. This is partly why I also look forward to seeing many more older celluloid movies digitized to excellent visual effect if the right players take an interest in doing so. Thank you Ben.

            Hello David, I think there has been a bit of confusion here. My comment about the digitized resolution of 35 and 65 mm film reel was in reference to a comment which linked to my previous piece on the restoration into 4K of “Seven Samurai” You are correct about the digitally shot HD video of the 2010 “Tron” release, though it could upscale nicely on a 4K display with a quality upscaling engine or through an upscaling Blu-ray player.

            @ Stephen > Thanks for the mention, I’m a Photographer, Film Buff and a bit of a digital geek! I also work every day with 4K TVs so I’m always trying to keep abreast of the 4K revolution as much as possible and with as much info as possible. So it’s a real bonus that I’ve found this website, good work and Kudos to you and your colleagues for putting together such a great website.

            @ David White > Tron Legacy was shot digitally,yes, however with H.265 codec coding and the processing power that modern film studios command, it’s perfectly possible for them to produce a 4K copy, even if it’s upscaled and heavily processed. With most 4K TVs due to come out soon (Sony are introducing a new range* imminently), their upscaling capabilities, HDR inclusion and processing power will be greatly increased and so will be able to deal with Blocking, Blurring and Haloing (“Artifacts”) much more efficiently. One of the problems with using algorithms that upscale/interpolate from 1080p to a higher resolution or reduces one of these “artifacts” does so at the expense of others.

            For example, upscaling that might reduce the jagged edges during more fast moving scenes- might induce more overall image/motion blur (make sure your 4K set has the best chipset that reduces motion blur and has as high a refresh rate in Mhz as possible), and upscaling that reduces halos might appear less sharp. To avoid the issue of having any one “artifact” appear too pronounced, upscaling algorithms therefore balance small amounts of each “artifact” as best as possible.

            The areas that tend to suffer most with upscaling interpolation most are finer textures such as in fabrics (weave, materials etc), hair and landscapes which are all more likely to cross over the resolution threshold, and, the artifacts then become become more visible when upscaled higher than it’s native 1080p resolution.

      Tron Legacy was NOT SHOT ON FILM.

      Only the digital Sony F35 1920×1080 camera was used. 4K would only be upscaled.

      As for the original – the director has CLEARLY stated that drum scanning the film negatives would introduce too much film grain that would negate any 4K resolution advantages.

      Take care.

    Now that we have the streaming list, lets see if any of the same titles make it to 4Kdisc. Thats where the resolution really will show the formats developments. They need to, considering that 4k bluray players are starting to be sold – without all of the compression that will taint streaming titles.

    How long b4 we are able to order uhd titles from the streaming guys.

    Hopefully soon,

      4K bluray is currently heavily compressed and few titles are mastered from native 4K sources atm.

      Hello M, right off the bat, what is your region? Are you in the U.S or in another country like Canada? Some markets don’t yet have access to HDR content. Furthermore, check which shows you’re trying to watch in HDR, only a limited selection of content has and will have high dynamic range encoded for now.

      You’ll probably need to check the codec as well….. Most video formats that stream from an internet source will be using the IEEE H.264 codec, whereas HDR media will be coded in the H.265/HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) codec.

      H.265/HEVC is 39% more efficient as a coding to carry data and can also code images to well beyond 8 bits. Hopefully more media streaming companies will be adopting the H.265 codec and you also need to check your TV type. If you bought a 4K TV in 2013, it won’t include the H.265/HEVC codec in it, however all 2014 major brand 4K TV’s DO include the necessary hardware decoder and codec to display an HDR image.
      Although as I write this I’ve just checked the deets on your TV and the XBR55X850C comes with full 4K connectivity that includes HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 compatibility, USB 3.0, HEVC/VP9 codec calibration. H.265/HEVC is good for macroblock compression and decompression to carry image data better, however the VP9 codec is better at HDR streaming.

        Ben… From the source of the expert you are….. Can you tell me the specs for my TV? I make no apologies for make and model, It was on sale for $399. Thus far I can find no source for technical specs. Manufacturer is no help.
        It is a Memorex MLT5558 55″ 4K UHD. Yes, bottom tier, but crimony!!, you should see the picture it produces!!! I know it can’t be HDR at this level, can it? My system using ROKU 4 and internet at 60MBPS gives stunning clarity. It only has one HDMI 2.0, HDCP 2.2 port so the Roku owns that. I have Dish Hopper3, Joey4K and any 4K programming from them doesn’t come close to what the Roku delivers.

        Could that HDMI 2.0 port be HDMI 2.1? Is my set HDR capable?

          No your set is not HDR capable but that doesn’t mean you cannot go on enjoying your movies.
          Native UHD Blu-ray quality will look that good that you will have a major improvement anyway.

          HDR though is really nice if you do eventually get a compatible set. The difference can be quite staggering. Enjoy your 55 UHD TV for now anyway. The high bit colour/ dynamic range movie library is only sprouting ATM. Good Luck.

    Why not just get a 3D projector?

    Even the original Tron (1982) looks awesome when you convert it to 2D->3D using PowerDVD.

    It sounds like a gimmick but because of all the perspective and computer graphics it works surprisingly well when converted to 3D in powerdvd.
