If you like to keep up with technology, chances are you already own the new 4K UHD TV—if you don’t, this is the newest and hippest TV to buy right now. Brands like Sony, Panasonic and LG have already jumped on the 4K bandwagon and have launched several series. Some even combine 4K with HDR, giving you the best picture quality you can get.
With that being said, you can’t just turn on a 4K TV— and boom —be hit by an array of Ultra High Definition content. The truth is that this technology may have been the talk of the town for a while but the content is just catching up. Not all TV shows and movies are UHD-supported, they have to be created with similar technology so that you can watch such quality programming.
However, if you want to test your TV’s true potential, we’re here to tell you how to get your 4K fix. All you need is a 4K UHD TV, a premium subscription to a content streaming service, like Netflix, and a fast internet connection of at least 25 Mbps.
Ready? Now tune in and catch these TV shows that are totally worth watching on your 4K TV.
Stranger Things 2
Stranger Things 2 is a 9-episode continuation of the first season. If you liked Season 1, get ready to be wowed by Eleven and the gang again. You can stream it in 1080p HD as well as 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision on Netflix. Backed up by such picture quality, we can guarantee that you will appreciate this season much more. The dark atmosphere of the series seems more real with richer colours. The fall setting of the show and the cooler greys and blues of the ‘Upside Down’ stand out appealingly with 4K.
Mindhunter is a Netflix original series that’s in its first season. It chronicles the growth of the FBI in 1970s America and the formation of the term ‘serial killer’ by them. The show was digitally shot, scanned and edited in 4K, which means it is available for 4K viewing too. It’s been said that the muted colour palette of the series plays a large part in contributing to the unsettling aftertaste of this dark drama and watching it in UHD will leave a much better impact.
