Stephan Jukic – August 26, 2015

Nanotech Entertainment, one of the up-and-coming pioneers of 4K streaming video has announced (as of the 25th of August) that the company has signed a licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures which is supposed to give users of Ultraflix access to a whole new collection of more than 950 movies.

The titles will be available to subscribers of Ultraflix as of September 1st, 2015 and mark a major stepping stone in establishing Ultraflix as a serious competitor to services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video.

The very diverse library of Paramount content includes a massive selection of classic movies, blockbuster hits from recent times and some very popular Hollywood movie franchises. Users of Ultraflix will be able to access movies like: Chinatown, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, The Godfather, Star Trek (2009), War of the Worlds (the modern version), Transformers, Minority Report, World War Z, the Hunt for Red October and comedies like The Legend of Ron Burgandy, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Airplane, Jackass: The Movie and a whole pile of other films.

Ultraflix itself claims that one of the keys to their success at expanding in the streaming UHD media market is the ability to deliver a superb content experience without requiring excessive bandwidth resources. The company further claims to be able to stream “virtually lossless” 4K ultra HD video via a connection of less than 5Mbps. If this is indeed the case, it represents a considerable improvement over the compression rates and bandwidth requirements of rival services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, both of which insist that their 4K subscribing customers have home internet connections of at least 15 to 20Mbps for 4K content and 3 to 5 Mbps for Full HD content.

Ultraflix is available on a wide range of 4K TVs as a downloadable app. Brands that accept the Ultraflix service include Samsung 4K TVs, Sony models and Vizio’s highly affordable M and P-Series 4K UHD sets.

Individual titles can be rented through the Ultraflix app and held for 48 hours.

    OK, I had to see what all this talk was about. Just got a 4K TV (Vizio) and the UltraFlix app was pre-installed. Signed up and have been checking it out. And I totally agree. It’s addictive. The visuals are amazingly clear, so fun to watch. They’ve put out seven of the Paramount films so far. So many I haven’t seen are going to be uploaded to UF shortly. I can’t wait to watch them in stunning 4K. Our family no longer wants to go to the movies. We’re just going to watch UltraFlix.

    Maybe 100 well known movies and the rest are some bollywood ones I will never watch. Video on demand in 4k. It delivers what it promises. I could see this app getting a decent following if more content comes out.

    Ultralight? Streaming 4k at less than 5My/s? That’s not new, it’s figuring out the world really is round! Was nanotech the most well kept secret from all the 2015 expos? If anything, Netflix and Amazon, already trusted brands, brands prolific and as ubiquitous as it gets in the current tech atmosphere, will simply continue to bring the rain. I hope. Because I am going to try it. Though, I go in a sceptic, and I hate being toyed with by money hungry, greedy faceless companies. We shall see.

    Any way you can do an up to date review. This one seems outdated and there is a lot of new news. …

      Hello Kevin. This would be a news article and an older one at that, not a review. When we next post news on something from Ultraflix, it will naturally include the latest information.

    Ultraflix is just upscaled 1080p- not 4K scans from original prints-scam!

    Hey Stephen, you still getting paid do reviews for criminal enterprises? David Foley was a convicted felon when you took his money to do a fluff review and now his whole family is being sued by the SEC for stock fraud and other fraud and so is a promoter like you an ex-promoter bennie blankenship who worked directly with foley.
    I’m not even going to give you the benefit of the doubt because you didn’t care enough to do a simple 15 minute check on who you’re shilling for.
    Keep up the good work, mr. blogger.
