4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is here! But what can you watch in the format, and where can you buy it? Read on…

4K Blu-ray is now available in the UK, bringing with it a number of titles to enjoy in ultra high-definition.

Not long ago, a 65in 4K TV would have cost £5000. and 4K content was thin on the ground - and restricted to Netflix and Amazon's streaming services.

Now, though, you can find a 65in 4K TV for just over half that price. And what was a trickle of content has become more of a stream as studios release more titles - and April saw the arrival of Panasonic's DMP-UB900 and Samsung's UBD-K8500 4K Blu-ray players.

So we've rounded up all the Ultra HD Blu-rays you can buy in the UK.* We’ll be updating this page regularly as more titles are released.
