We’ve been hearing from Amazon that they plan to shoot their 2014 original series lineup in 4K (which you can enjoy if you happen to own a Samsung Ultra HD TV). Until now, we just didn’t know when. Samsung has now revealed that this will be happening in October of this year, stating that they plan to support Amazon’s Prime Instant Video UHD streaming on their 4K TVs.
This is great news for those of you with the fancy televisions that support 4K content, with very little available in that enhanced resolution. Samsung has more in store, with a CES announcement this year sharing that in addition to Amazon, the company has established major partnerships with Netflix, Comcast, and DirecTV.
It hasn’t been announced yet whether Amazon’s 4K service too extend to additional manufacturers, but it seems probable once any kinks have been worked out.
