    I am sure they can add to Sony PS4 but the X800 would require a firmware update (I believe) so i would not hold you breath for that one.

      Just picked up a Vizio D70 and I?m very surprised the Vudu app doesn?t support 4K UHD. I have to cast from my phone for UHD content. Fix it

I haven't had any issues with buffering like I have seen on my LG "smart" tv, which proves that the sony wireless is as good as advertised (going wired soon anyway). Do you have a timeline on when you plan to release uhd to the app on this tv? If it will NEVER be available on the TV that would be great to know as well. Thus far, it seems vizio TVs and the roku4 is all that is supported if I am reading this thread correctly? Do you plan on giving UHD titles on other smart blu ray players on the market? I was thinking of getting a Sony 6500 Blu-ray Player, and know it is "4k upconvert" and has some good processing power, so one would assume it would be available one day.
        Hello, I just wanted to let you know that a "4K Upconvert" player, is not an actual 4K player; therefore, it will never stream actual 4K content so Vudu will never be able to update its app to stream 4K content. To play/Stream true 4K content, you will need to get an actual, true 4K player. Of late, I have read articles that say that 4K players are going to be discontinued (by some and eventually all) player manufacturers because streaming content is getting close to equaling physical media, and in the not too distant future will be equal to it so physical media (which is more expensive anyway) won't be put out. That is probably a few years away, but I've read that at least one manufacturer (Samsung I think) has already announced that they will no longer make/release physical 4K disc players. Anyway, I just wanted to make sure you know what to look for, so you don't make the mistake of buying a 4K "upconvert" player as they are useless when it comes to true 4K content.

          Maybe I'm confused. According to VUDU, Roku Premiere plus, streaming stick and Ultra have an 4K + HDR playback and is compatible with streaming Vudu in UHD. I'm assuming if the Smart TV app (Samsung, TLC, LG, etc.) aren't compatible with Vudu and Roku is, wouldn't that solve the problem? Or am I overthinking?
          You are correct. Getting a Roku would fix the potential issue. As long as the TV is compatible with 4K content and HDR (as you've stated the Apple TV is), then the Roku would undoubtedly work for you. As mentioned by another the Chromecast is supposed to work well also (although throughout this thread I've seen many that have occasional issues with Chromecast). I personally do not have Chromecast so I can't verify if it does actually work well, but I do have the Roku Ultra with 4K and HDR, and has worked perfectly (with 4K, and HDR) since I purchased it three years ago.

            I use a Roku Ultra and have found that the apps on the Roku are kept more up to date than the apps on smart TV's. I think that this is for a couple of reasons. Mainly because Roku has a very large installed base and they make an effort as well as the app providers paying more attention because of this. Once a TV is a couple of years old neither the manufacturer or app provider seem interested in investing too much in keeping the app updated and functional.

              I think Vudu 4k is hugely flawed. Running 4k and have done everything possible to get it running and it still only allows HDX and not UHD. WTF!?
              Running:
              i7-8700
              16gb Ram
              RTX 2070
              4k QLED UHD monitor Smasung UH750

              Would like to see this fixed and corrected to allow 4k viewing on more 4k systems.

                Does anyone know what the limitation is for VUDU not being compatible with Sony 4K TV's from 2015?

                Comment


                  I curious why VUDU requires a 4k monitor for UHD. It would be nice to still get the added quality on my 1440p monitor, in the same way as streaming YouTube in 4k does.

                    • Apple TV 4K - app version 1.1.1 or later (set default playback quality to UHD)

                        Any plans for mobile device support anytime soon? Would love to be able to enjoy HDR on-the-go.

                          I'm in the same boat as you, I have the sony 940C and 65x930C and have given up on expecting to see any 4K support from VUDU. At this point, I'm beginning to think maybe VUDU have some boycott of sony products. The support for sony products is bizarre.

                          Instead of waiting, I've moved on to Google play or Amazon for 4K streaming support. I don't buy, rent, or redeem on vudu anymore because of the lack of 4K support for my sony product.

                          I'm just here to see if they've added support and it looks like they have not, oh well.

                            It is compatible if you use Roku or one of those platforms, but they said long ago in this post that they would not be going any further back than 2016 (and only some of those). I have a 2016 Sony 4K that was left out, but I have a Roku 4K player that does the HDR and such, so it pretty much doesn't matter. The point is, they aren't going to make Vudo 4K compatible from within your Sony TV. You'll need to get a 3rd party player (i.e. Roku) like the rest of us. And SolidState, I don't understand why you're "boycoting" Vudu. All of the current TVs (2018 and on) are completely compatible with Vudu. And I understand that doesn't help those of us with older Sony TVs, but it takes a lot of time/money to make code backwards compatible for older models of TV. And since Vudu is on Amazon Fire Stick, Google Chromcast, Roku a d other palyers, why not just get one of those (if you haven't already) and then you can enjoy it all on your current TV.

                              Would it be possible to update this list with some indication of which devices also support ATMOS? It would be very helpful. Thanks.
