4K resolution has been around for years yet people intend to ignore it as the current HD resolution would 'suffice' our viewing needs. However we are gradually embracing 4K resolution as a norm as current technology continue to push us further and further into modern entertainment.
Polygon.com reports that Sony announced today about Netflix and YouTube getting new 4K apps exclusively for the PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro). Andrew House, Sony's Interactive Entertainment CEO, made known to all today that the PS4 Pro, which shows off 4K and HDR features will be supporting entertainment amenities like Netflix and some particular channels on YouTube that are already embracing 4K resolution and filming.
TV Shows like Narcos and Luke Cage's season 2 will be excitingly available to stream in 4K but for only those that 4K supported TVs and should also have PlayStation 4 Pro. Netflix has been housing 4K and HDR ready films and TV shows for fairly some time, but streaming 4K on most consoles is not yet available. House adds that Netflix is currently expecting to have a bit over "6000 hours of 4K content" as the year ends. This app is also featured on the Xbox One S, which also boasts HDR imaging and 4K playback.
On the other hand, the YouTube app, will catch up on a later launch date but will also support 4K playback. House didn't give out too much information on the 4K app, but it is said that it will play regular, HD, and 4K formatted videos. House also didn't expose any information on whether streaming providers such as Amazon, also currently supporting HDR streaming, will be shifting to the console market.
The PS4 Pro will be available for purchase on Nov. 10 and will cost $399.
