FujiTV, the largest television network in Japan partnering with Mist Technologies has started offering a new 4K ultra high definition (UHD) online streaming service to its subscribers, marking the first 4K service in Japan. The Tokyo-based Startup, Mist leverages its peer-to-peer MistCDN (content delivery network) technology to power the service, promising huge reduction up to 80% in bandwidth. 

Mist’s initial content offerings for its new FujiTV customers will include a documentary on the hauntingly abandoned island of Hashima in Northern Japan, a guide to Tokyo’s night-time illuminated architecture and a very popular Chinese-Japanese TV drama called “Mysterious Summer”.

The service which is based on Javascript and WebRTC wihout the need for additional plugins offers bitrates of as high as 40 MB per second. Backed by Japanese telco KDDI, Mist Technologies claims that the bitrate for its 4K service exceeds that of Netflix by two times.
