How to Download 4K Ultra HD Movies or Netflix Mastered in 4K Movies

Before you get to a real readiness to download 4K Ultra HD movies, you should be clear on what a movie shot in 4K really mean first. As you probably know, some so-called 4K movies are not in awesome quality as you expected. Besides, you need to figure out where to find a 4K movie list for download. So far, only few movies by Warner, Paramount and 20th Century Fox are streamed in 4K on Netflix or YouTube.

4K Movie vs Mastered in 4K

Previously: What Is 4K Movie?

4K Movies are short or full-length feature films available in 4K Ultra High Definition, most commonly in 3840×2160. There are two possible 4K movies to download, one of which is true 4K movie, otherwise known as native 4K movie, sourced and delivered in 4K resolution. Another is "Mastered in 4K" movie, which is a Full HD 1080p film on Blu-ray disc that has been upscaled into 4K movie during playback. Either way, 4K movies are available now despite the fact that 4k movie is still a rare source and 4K technology/4K display/4K TV/4K monitor are yet to be improved. But precisely because of that, a 4K movie list is badly needed for later 4K movie download.

True 4K Movie vs. Mastered in 4K Movie

Simply put, "Mastered in 4K" movie video is an upscaled version of HD for playback on 4K Ultra HDTV using the 4K TV's mathematical upscaling algorithm. True 4K film needs more data storage, at least 100 gigabytes. That's why there is no 4K movie Blu-ray DVD disc at present. Current dual-layer Blu-ray disc can only hold 50 gigabytes.
