NanoTech to deliver native Ultra HD content to Sony TVs

Ultra HD TVs are receiving lots of hype (at least from TV manufacturers), but the bugaboo has been, and continues to be, the lack of “native” Ultra HD content to watch on them. Broadcast, cable/satellite and Blu-ray don’t yet offer it, although Amazon and Netflix are stepping forward with limited offerings. Today comes some welcome news for the category, as there’s going to be a little more to watch soon on demand.

Ultra HD TV disc player coming next year?

One of the biggest problems facing the rollout of Ultra HD TVs is that there’s no “native” Ultra HD content available to watch on them.

Although Netflix and Amazon will stream an extremely limited amount of Ultra HD content this year, it won’t be a panacea. And there’s no Ultra HD disc player, which would be the successor to the Blu-ray Disc player. Now there’s news that an Ultra HD player could be available by the end of 2015.
