Samsung has been playing its part to push 4K technology forward, but it will take a lot of time for this to become widespread. One of the main reasons why 4K adoption is relatively slow at this point in time is due to the fact that 4K televisions are quite expensive. Moreover content creators aren’t swiftly jumping over to 4K. Samsung today announced a promotion to push sales of its curved HU9000 4K TV. All customers will receive eight 4K movies for free with each purchase.
The eight movies being offered with each purchase of a Samsung HU9000 4K TV include World War Z, The Counselor, Night at the Museum, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, GI Joe: Retaliation as well as the documentaries The Last Reef, Cappadocia and Grand Canyon Adventure.
This collection is called the “UHD Video Pack” which is simply an external hard drive that is pre-loaded with all of these titles. This is typically sold for
$399 $299, but now Samsung is offering it for free, so its pretty good deal if you’re going to get the TV anyway. The HU9000 4K TV doesn’t come cheap either, prices start from $3,500, but on the other hand, this is a cutting-edge TV.
Samsung has not confirmed to Ubergizmo that both new customers and customers who have already purchased the TV can redeem the package by going to the UHD Video Pack link above. The wait time will be up to 12 weeks to receive their UHD Video Pack. The promotion is being run until June 30th 2014.
