4K Ultra HD Blu-ray titles coming to hmv in April

There's exciting news on the horizon! 4K Ultra HD is on the way and hmv will begin stocking the first titles in stores across the UK from April this year, bringing true cinema quality to your home for the first time. 

Fox are the first major studio to announce that they will be issuing a range of titles in the new 4K format, with a resolution four times higher than current 1080p HD standards. The list of titles available is to include X-Men: Days of Future Past, Exodus, Fantastic Four, Kingsman, The Life of Pi and both The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: Scorch Trials. These titles will be available in hmv stores from April 11th, but while the other studios are expected to follow suit, as yet no release dates or titles from the likes of Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures have been announced. The list of titles will be available for pre-order from our online store from Monday 29th February.

The above titles will be issued on 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray and represent the first time that film titles will be available on the new format in the UK. Those who want more information on the new format can find more detail here
