The company is committed to the standard, despite its large bandwidth needs.
Hunt says streaming will be the first arena for 4K, rather than in disc form: "That's because of the challenges involved in upgrading broadcast technologies and the fact that it isn't anticipated within the Blu-ray disc standard. Clearly, we have much work to do with the compression and decode capability, but we expect to be delivering 4K within a year or two with at least some movies."
The exec also notes that House of Cards, the company's original show starring Kevin Spacey, is filmed in 4K.
