TELUS customers can now access some of the biggest and most buzzed-about new shows in stunning 4K with the launch of the Netflix app on its Optik TV 4K set-top boxes. Optik TV is Telus' IPTV based television service that uses the Ericsson Mediaroom middleware platform for its service.
With a Netflix Premium subscription, users can stream 4K content directly from their Optik TV 4K set-top boxes, eliminating the hassle of switching inputs, fumbling for additional remotes or purchasing additional hardware.
With four times the resolution of HD, 4K delivers a more realistic viewing experience, bringing an awe-inspiring, immersive entertainment experience right into customers' homes.
TELUS launched Optik TV 4K earlier this summer to become the first carrier in Western Canada to offer 4K programming. Netflix in 4K adds to TELUS' growing 4K lineup, which includes TSN 4K, adrenaline sports On Demand (e.g., snowboarding, surfing and dirt biking), Stingray Ambiance and an expanding collection of Optik Local productions and blockbuster new movie releases.
