Strato with non-4K Display


Well-known member
If you have a Strato with non 4K display and you buy the 4K title, will it download the 4K version and downscale or just download the HD version?


Well-known member
Here are other things to consider.

-When a 4k title is purchased, studios generally include the HD version.
-UHD movies are twice the size of HD movies.
-Is UHD scaled to HD better than the HD version?
-Currently, ATMOS and other premium soundtracks are more prevalent in the HD versions on the K store - but it’s always changing.

I believe from the brief period I had my Strato without a 4k display, it will warn you for downloading and not display the 4k versions in the list.

Thanks for clarification. Only had HDR versions during my tests.
