Samsung Electronics is adding NanoTech's UltraFlix 4K streaming channel to all 2014 Samsung Ultra High-Definition (UltraHD) TVs.

The transactional video-on-demand (VOD) 4K network will be available this week on Samsung UltraHD TVs as a featured 4K app. UltraFlix offers one-click access to more than 500 hours of pay-per-view (PPV) movies, concerts, TV shows and special events, and 100 hours of free content.

Designed to leverage the HEVC compression standards, NanoTech's streaming 4K UltraHD software archives up to 50% better compression than with H.264, according to the company.

"Samsung is the leader in TV technology, so we are excited to launch the UltraFlix streaming service on their complete family of UltraHD TVs," said Aaron Taylor, NanoTech's EVP of sales and marketing. "Samsung continues to set new standards in innovation and immersive viewing experiences and we look forward to partnering with them to deliver our entire 4K UltraHD library."
