Ultraflix pulls a 4K content coup with the Inclusion of “Interstellar” in UHD

Ultraflix may be a young streaming 4K and HD content service with a lot of catching up to do before it matches Netflix in sheer quality of ultra HD content but this week at least, the company that owns it, Nanotech Entertainment, definitely pulled off a coup of content polishing by gaining the rights to Christopher Nolan’s extremely popular sci fi movie “Interstellar” in full 4K resolution.

Ultraflix has made this newest addition to their service available on the service’s streaming content menu as of March 31st and not only is this a big deal because this movie is a recent title, it’s also a big deal because this is a recent major blockbuster title with some serious publicity behind its original release to theaters. A lot of people will want to see Interstellar in the 4K resolution that it was filmed in.

Furthermore, given that much of the services other films and video selections in ultra HD represent a somewhat lackluster collection of older content and documentary films, more movies like “Interstellar” are a truly major potential source of real success for the 4K content streaming service.

Finally, “interstellar” is definitely one movie that truly lends itself to looking absolutely spectacular in a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels on a larger UHD TV, maybe something above 65 inches. With its extraordinary visuals of travel through space, time and the orbits of alien worlds rotating around a gargantuan black hole, this film is not only spectacular in its imagery, it’s also a fully fleshed out piece of plotting

Ultraflix is owned by Nanotech Entertainment and since its launch in erly 2014, has focused intense effort on slowly developing a wide selection of 4K movies, shows and other content selections like documentaries for a growing audience. So far, the service is available on Sony, Vizio and Samsung TVs with plans to arrive at other 4K TV brands as soon as possible.

Unlike Netflix and Amazon Prime, its much more recognized 4K streaming rivals, Ultraflix doesn’t yet offer a subscription service and instead rents out or sells its 4K titles individually at prices which vary by nature of content. You can find out more about that here in fact.

    Except that title image isn’t from Interstellar… It’s from Mass Effect 3.

    “A lot of people will want to see Interstellar in the 4K resolution that it was filmed in.”

    Interstellar was shot and completed on FILM, much of it on IMAX film cameras boasting resolution greater than 8K, let alone the assumption that 35mm has 4K resolution.

    Though Interstellar played in 2K and 4K digital, it was most certainly acquired on FILM.
