Technicolor’s M-GO service will stream 4K movies to Samsung TVs

0

See on Scoop.itSci-Fi Talk Technicolor may no longer be recognizable as the company that introduced Dorothy to Oz, but it’s still embedded in the movie business. In fact, the company’s M-GO streaming movie service — a joint venture with DreamWorks Animation — could soon become a major source of 4K content for your new 4K television. Over the past year, the partnership has managed to convince Samsung, LG, Vizio, and Roku to load its service onto all their new smart televisions and set-top boxes, and now Samsung is taking that relationship to the next level. Today, Samsung is announcing that M-GO will stream both native and upscaled 4K movies to its latest ultra-high-definition TV sets starting in spring of this year.   According to M-GO, the service has lined up around 100 titles for launch, including “a wide selection of full-length 4K theatrical hits and popular TV shows from Hollywood’s leading studios and networks.” M-GO claims that customers will be able to watch movies upscaled to 4K with as little as 3Mbps of bandwidth, while native 4K content will require a steady 15mbps connection.
