4K Movies

Not sure about you, but I hate TV commercials!  I absolutely despise any television commercial that plays in front of my face.  Apparently I am spoiled.  This is what happens to you when you get use to streaming movies and TV shows on your television.

Whether you have a new 4K Ultra HD TV, or not….you should be able to stream and endless amount of content.  All you need is a SMART television and a good internet connection.  Even if your current television is not ‘SMART’, you can still hook up a Roku or Fire TV Box to your 1080p HD TV and gain access to streaming in this way.

Regardless of how you access streaming material, there is a plethora of it!  And, the best part of all is that they do NOT have commercials!  This is one reasons why I strive to stream my shows versus locating something to watch on cable or satellite TV.  Don’t get me wrong, I do watch normal broadcasting especially if a sporting event is on.  But, it is not my preference.

I don’t know anyone who likes commercials other than watching the newest ones during the Super Bowl.  That’s about it.  Otherwise, they are a waste of time and they interrupt your TV show or movie.

What is nice about Tevo or having a digital recorder is that you can fast forward through commercials.  That is a good feature along with being able to record a good TV show since you will not be home.

As far as streaming, over the past 2 years we have come a long, long way.  On my Sony 4K UHD TV alone,…I have over 100 TV applications.  There is basically a TV app for any subject you can think.  Below is a snapshot of my actual Sony TV and a listing of all the TV apps available to me.  *Note:  This is just one page of TV apps.  If I scroll to the right I can access page after page after page.

   *This is my SONY 4K UHD TV Apps Screen.


Not all TV apps contains awesome shows.  Some do, some don’t.  The point is that we have them available to us to watch.  If you are thinking about upgrading your current 1080p HD TV, then consider purchasing a 4K Ultra HD Television.   You should NOT buy another 1080 HD TV.   This does not make sense since 4K TVs are replacing 720 & 1080p HD TV entirely.

It may take several more years, but eventually all consumers will own a 4K UHD TV.  What is happening is comparable to how we switched from standard definition (SD) in the early 2000s to High Definition.  We replaced those big, ugly heavy tube box TVs with a nice, lightweight flat panel television.  Not to mention, the picture image was totally amazing compared to analog standard definition.  HD was clear, crisp and very detailed.  It was a big jump coming from analog television.

We enjoyed high definition for over 15 years and most household still own at least one 1080p HD television.  But, as time passes and people need a new TV, they are choosing 4K.  Most merchants are only advertising 4K UHD TVs since they are indeed replacing HD TVs.

It is time to move on…thanks to technology.  Sony was the first to pioneer the 4K technology.  After years of research and development, they were able to squeeze FOUR more tiny little pixels into what would be equal to the size of ONE 1080 HD TV pixel.  Each pixel contains date/information.  This data is known to us as color, contrast, sharpness, depth, etc.  This is the information that flows through your TV system and ultimately present a picture image to you.

To have FOUR times as many pixels as a 1080 HD TV has,…is not minor feat.  This is not just another minor enhancement to TV watching.  This is BIG.  This is a major upgrade and enhancement!  This makes the picture image so much more real and true-t0-life that its hard to believe what you are seeing.  When watching a 4K TV its like you are looking through a window at a real live scene.

The actors faces are so detailed that it is basically what you would see in real life with your bare naked eyes.  It is that crisp and clear!  If you like watching TV and value a good picture image, you need to consider buying a 4K TV.  Prices are way down and Amazon has the largest selection.  We bought our first Sony 4K UHD TV on Amazon because it allowed us to save over $300.  Plus, it was FREE shipping that was delivered within 2 days to our front porch.

4L UHD content

Actually, the delivery people brought our Sony 4K TV into our family room and in-boxed it for us.  I have a bad shoulder and cannot lift anything.  This was very convenient and we would certainly do it again.  As a matter of fact, we do all of our shopping on Amazon.  Including groceries and some clothing.  The prices are the best and the selection is top-notch.

Below are some benefits to using Amazon.  We also provide helpful links to take you over to Amazon.  Please use our Amazon links to help support our site:

Amazon Shopping Benefits:


These are just a few benefits of using Amazon.  They are PROs at shipping fragile products like 4K TVs, so do not be worries.  Most consumers are shopping online nowadays and many brick and mortar stores are going out of business or being shrunk down.  Consumers are even buying larger, more expensive items like TVs online because its so convenient and you can save a lot of money.

Aside from your TV being SMART, there are many others ways to stream content.  Including 4K UHD content.  Most streaming services or boxes, contain a 4K Ultra HD option.  For example, Amazon has a 4K Fire TV box and Roku also has a 4K UHD Version.  Roku is a small box that hooks up to your television via an HDMI cord.  It makes your TV smart.  All you need is a strong internet connection.

The Roku box  (or whichever box you decide to use) connects to the internet and plays any TV apps that you choose.  They contains apps like Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube and Vudu.  These are all movies and TV show streaming apps.

Another interesting point is that some of the larger streaming apps are now in the business of producing TV shows.  They do not just play 3rd party content, but instead they are producing their own TV shows.  And, honestly many of them are great to watch!

What are you waiting for?  Start shopping for a 4K Ultra HD TV right now.  We have helped point you in the right direction by providing some TVs for sale below.



4K Ultra HD Tvs


  1. Because our Sony 4K UHD TV has a SMART feature that contains over 100 TV apps, we never needed a Roku or TV fire type box. We have access to all the same tv apps within our Smart TV. But, if you don’t, this is the best way to gain access to streaming services such as Netlfix or Vudu. Buy a Roku or Fire Tv box from amazon. They are reasonably priced. You need internet access too:-)

  2. I used to use one of those boxes you talked about before I had my first smart TV. It was wonderfull and we had no problems what so ever. However i must say that once we moved to a smart TV it all becsme much easier. It is fun and from time to time we are checking for new ups for our tv and its great fun to fined out that there are so many new ones.

      Hi – Yes a SMART Tv with built in TV apps is much easier than using any box. But, boxes do work very well and give you the access you need. You should consider upgrading to a 4K UHD TV. They are priced the same as an 1080 HD TV nowadays and there is plenty of 4K content.

      Watching a 4K TV is simply amazing. The image is so real and true-to-life that its like you are looking through a window at a real live scene. Go and request a demo from the store, pick out your 4K TV and then come back to our site at http://www.4KADVICE.com and click our Amazon links. Go to Amazon and shop for the TV you want. You can even read reviews from other verified purchasers of your same TV. Here are some others Posts.

      1080 HD – WHAT IS UPSCALING?


  3. Technology is rapidly going forward, this way of watching TV looks very interesting, especially with a good quality and without annoying ads.It’s worth a try,but is it available in my country Macedonia? However, consideration should be good, because here we have dramatically lower standard of living and not so accessible these innovations in technology.

      Hello Dragi – thank you for commenting on our Post and sharing our site http://www.4kadvice.com This helps us out a lot. You are from Macedonia and I am not sure if you can stream 4K movies and TV shows. Go online and search with this question. Good Luck! – Matt B.

      You can at least buy a 4K TV and plus a 4k UHD Blu-Ray player and watch real 4K movies without having to stream if your country does not have it yet. – MB.

  4. I think we may be witnessing the slow death of traditional television. With services like Netflix, Amazon on Demand, Hulu and others, it’s becoming far more convenient to watch on your own time without the annoyance of advertismeents. 4k Smart TV’s are definitely the future.But I wonder if they go the way of Bluray Discs and 3DTV’s? I hardly see 3DTV’s anymore and Bluray Discs may become obsolete because of the HD streaming services that are available.
    What do you think?

      Thanks for commenting and you bring up some very good questions and concerns. I totally agree that standard broadcast television is definitely changing. I don’t think it will ever go away because many people cant afford cable or internet and rely on over-the-air broadcasts.

      However, it is very interesting that the major streaming services have all jumped in full force to producing their own TV shows. That is what has changed the most. I LOVE IT….and its what I prefer to watch because no commercials and you do not have to wait week to week to watch another episode. They usually release one full season at a time. Amazon Video has produced many, many of its own TV show series and they are actually really good. Great acting. Same with Netflix having produced their own shows.

      In interviews last year, all these companies said the same thing. Their main goal is to produce and back their own tv shows to keep their customers watching their service as much as possible. It makes sense to me.

      For consumers its a Plus, Plus. For $11 a month since I am 4K UHD member of Netflix I get to watch an endless amount of shoes and movies and all my devices AND watch new stuff that they create. I could be happy only doing this and canceling my other cable channels.

      This is what might happen like you said and cable companies will be in trouble. MB.



      1080 HD – WHAT IS UPSCALING?

  5. Nice article! I have seen many 4K TVs at the local store and boy, they look amazing! I almost exclusively watch commercial free content, as I hate commercials like you. Roku and Netflix are the best thing since sliced bread.
    I always DVR my favorite shows and when my wife and I watch them, I am in control of fast forwarding all the commercials.
    Do you think the priced on 4K TVs will come down much by Christmas?

      Hi Dave, thank you for commenting on our Post and supporting our site, http://www.4KADVICE.com in this way. We are glad that you liked our article and that you learned something from it. That is our purpose. To educate people about 4K BEFORE they buy another TV.

      The DVR was the best invention, wasn’t it?! We too, watch mostly saved content on DVR or we stream commercial free 4K movies and shows from Amazon or Netflix.

      Good question, the best deals right now are on Amazon. You can get a new 2017 Samsung LOADED 4K Ultra HD SMART and CURVED TV for only $1200 bucks. Its huge at 65-inches. 2 years ago this TV was selling for $3500.

      Also, the other best deals on Amazon are the 2016 model 4K UHD TVs. There is nothing wrong with them being 2016. They are no different from the 2017 models whatsoever. If I was buying another 4K TV right now, I WOULD BUY THIS EXACT SAMSUNG 4K TV because curved is just a bonus because it looks cool. Curved serves no other purpose than that. Anyway the price is so good this is what I would buy.

      Prior to Christmas there are plenty of sales and deal on Amazon. Amazon is better place to buy than anywhere else and where we bought our first Sony 65-invch 4K tv. We saved over $300 on Amazon and it shipped guaranteed, FREE within 2 days we were watching it. I hate annoying sales people so another benefit of shopping on Amazon aside from cost savings is avoiding pesky sales people. Here are some other Posts you might like about deals and prices. Thanks for using our site to take you over to Amazon. You can read honest reviews on Amazon also from other purchasers. – MATT B.



      BEST 4K TVs IN 2017 (some 2016 models)

  6. Hi Matt
    whoa you website s amazing, i don’t have a 4k tv so was interested when your site came up for comment, unfortunately i cant see anything wrong with your website i really like it i like the way you scroll along the top pictures and a preview pops up that’s cool. i love how you have filled up all your pages. this i need to learn. and the WA ad’s are nicely spaced out and also your amazon ad’s. and your popular links are great. sorry i cant give any negative feedback as i’m new with WA. Overall i really liked this site great job

      Hi David – thanks for commenting on our site at http://www.4KADVICE.com.  We appreciate your feedback.  Please share our site with others so that we can help to inform them BEFORE they go buy another TV.

      Man, thanks for the compliments on the site.  I made this similar mistake too and got scolded by WA.  Site Comments are for making only real comments about the particular Post that they have you read.  Then, there is a section for Site Feedback where you actually review a Post/Site and give your feedback about the site, layout, colors design.  You used the Comments section here, but I don’t mind at all.  Just letting you know because if people reject your comment too many times, it will block you from using both Site Comments and Feedback sections.  I approved your comment bc I’m not going to be an ass about it.

      Now, on the flip side, thanks…the them I had to pay for about $50 one-time.  Its not in the WP list.  Its called X Theme and they have four different layouts.  Its really easy to use and its  Word PRess theme obviously.  Someone who is very successful with their photo blog (not a member of WA) used this theme so I figured if it worked for him it would for me.  After 3 years this guy was making 505,000 a year.  Not kididing as he posted his income statements and stubs to prove it.  So, maybe that will motivate you and I.  He uses 3rd party ads, he sells photo classes and webinars and then uses Amazon for referral product sales.  Makes about 1/3 per each category.

      This is hard business.  What is your niche?  I think he is unusual in making that much money only after 3 years.  Ive been in for about 10 months now on another site and I still don’t get much traffic or revenues.  But, on this site I am starting to see steady revenues of about $30-$40 every month and rising.  There is hope.

      Let me know if I can help you out at all.  Ill do my best to answer questions since this is all fresh for me still.  I manage my sites daily.  I made this my full time career, so I set aaside funds for a while. But, if I don’t make it happen I only have so much time before having to go back and get real day job.  PRessure!

      Thanks, Matt B.
