The European video-on-demand (VOD) service Rakuten TV has launched a 4K HDR service for Samsung smart TVs.
Expanding the ongoing partnership signed at MIPTV last April, Rakuten TV will release 100 Ultra HD HDR titles before the end of the year.
Throughout Europe, the content, also with Dolby Digital Plus sound, will be only available through Samsung’s TV Plus service for TIZEN Smart TVs.
According to Rakuten TV (formerly Wuaki.tv), titles like Transformers: The Last Knight, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Baby Driver and Baywatch are already available in 4K HDR quality.
“Rakuten TV is committed to deliver the best entertainment experience to smart TV owners,” said Jacinto Roca, CEO and founder, Rakuten TV. “Working together with the best technology manufacturers and the best Hollywood studios we are able to deliver a comprehensive theatre-like experience.”
“Samsung is making an effort to offer the best TV experience, and we are happy to have found in Rakuten a partner that shares our goal,” added Heeman Lee, VP, visual display business, Samsung Electronics.
