Paramount Pictures' 2014 blockbuster, Interstellar, is going OTT via NanoTech's UltraFlix 4K/Ultra HD over the top streaming network.

Named as one of the Top Films of 2014 by The American Film Institute, Rolling Stone, Esquire, the New York Post and more, director Christopher Nolan's space flick stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, John Lithgow and Michael Caine. It follows an ex-pilot-turned-farmer who must leave his family and a foundering Earth behind to lead an expedition traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars.

The film will be available on UltraFlix from 31 March. To enhance the 4KTV viewing experience, UltraFlix uses a variety of proprietary technologies with video compression, adaptive streaming and intelligent bandwidth management. These technologies enable UltraFlix to stream "visually lossless video" at under 8Mbps, making it available to most North American and European internet subscribers today.

"We are delighted to bring one of the best and most critically-acclaimed films of 2014 to our UltraFlix subscribers," said Aaron Taylor, EVP of sales and marketing at NanoTech.
