4KUniverse 18 Oct 2018
Part of AsiaSat’s 4K-SAT ultra HD demo channel in 2015, 4KUniverse initially broadcast a few hours of ultra HD (UHD) content a day.

The general entertainment 4K HDR TV channel offers a range of programming including the children’s series, Eddie is a Yeti; vegan cooking series Plant-Based by Nafsika; Model Turned Superstar featuring Victoria’s Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio; and docufilms such as Patagonia extreme-skiing film The Empire of Winds.

4KUniverse  is broadcasting in Asia via AsiaSat 9 at 122°E, in 4K Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) HDR with Wide Colour Gamut (WCG), which is presently the highest quality, commercially-viable image in broadcasting today. The channel will be available through local licensed distribution partners across the satellite’s C-band footprint including Hong Kong, Mainland China, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines.

“I am thrilled to announce the deal with AsiaSat as we look forward to growing the 4KUniverse footprint across Asia-Pacific,” said Matthew Mancinelli, founder & CEO, 4KUniverse. “By offering the 4KUniverse channel to their customers, TV platforms and telcos alike can promote regularly scheduled 4K HDR broadcasts. It's time for customers to unleash the full potential of their new TVs.”

Ina Lui, senior vice president, commercial, business development & strategy of AsiaSat  said:“The launch of 4KUniverse with its full UHD programme schedule tailored for Asian audience is an exciting addition to AsiaSat 9’s growing video neighbourhood. We are grateful to be selected once again by 4KUniverse as their long-term UHD partner in Asia”.
