4K Ultra HD Movie Links, Where Can I Find Them

This article will provide a list of current Kodi Add-ons that supply links to 4K Ultra HD also known as Ultra High Definition or UHD. Before we get started, it is important to understand what 4K Resolution is and what devices should be used.

What is 4K Ultra HD?

4K Ultra-HD is about Four times the resolution of an 1080p (HD) TV. The screen resolution is 3840 x 2160, or 2160p vs what most TV sets still have, which is just 1920 x 1080p. A 4K television displays about 8 million pixels. Without boring you all, here is an excellent article from Wikipedia that breaks down 4K much better than I could. So read at your leisure, it’s not long but well written and can be found here.

Movie Quality keeps getting better. Because 4K is still a relatively new visual medium for movies, you can find a small number of 4K streams available through different Kodi add-ons. The best Kodi add-ons for 4K movies are actually some that you may already have installed.

There are a few Kodi add-ons that either offer 4K movies, or offer the potential for them. What “the potential” means is that those add-ons mention 4K movies somewhere in the add-on — either in the settings on in the menu options. Some popular examples of these “Potential” Add-ons are Elysium, Fantastic, Gurzil,  etc.

The “Potential” add-ons in their Tools or Settings allow you to set the Max Resolution to search/scrape, so it would be fruitless to set that higher than 1080p if it might find a 4K link. This may also slow down the search for your Movie if it has to find a potential 4K link. I have all of mine set no higher than 1080p.

You can unblock many “dns censored” sources with a smartdns solution.   If you use p2p add-ons, torrents, or in countries that prohibit streaming use a vpn from a reputable provider like Private Internet Access. 4K Ultra HD  

What Device is best to watch 4K Movies ?

Lets begin with what should you be viewing it on first. Obviously you would need to have a 4K Resolution TV. Without one you will never enjoy the full impact that the 4K TV and signal will provide, it’s like owning a Lamborghini but you have 4 cycle Engine installed. Looks nice in your Driveway, but doesn’t quite live up to expectations when you start it up.

The Device with Kodi/SPMC/Fork installed must be 4K Compatible. A very popular device is the Nvidea Shield but one of the most expensive. Then there is The Amazon Fire TV, it supports 1080p and 4K Ultra HD for great picture quality and much less expensive. What ever you decide on, make sure it is capable of handling a 4K stream. Do your Homework and Research the devices you’re interested in. As great as the Nvidia Shield is, low cost Android TV Boxes have began to catch up to its hardware.

Lets not forget about those that use a PC desktop or a Laptop Computer, these can obviously handle 4K Streams.

Here is the same Movie, from the same source Real Movies, but it is a 4K Ultra HD stream. Compare the detail shown in both photos of the left side of the space craft. Details found in the 4K photo are much sharper and cleaner than the 1080p. That is due to the amount of Pixels, 8 Million, with 4K streams. An unexpected Bonus with 4K Ultra HD streams is the quality of the Audio. This will add a new dimension to your viewing pleasure if you own a Home Theater System.

IN CONCLUSION

Various sites claim that 4K Ultra HD as the Creme de la Creme to view on Kodi. Having the proper equipment is a must.  Price and Budget will have a significant part in allowing you to actually view 4K TV. Prices are coming down on a monthly basis everywhere. If your ISP service is “buffering” with 1080p stream, 4K is 4 x 1080. That is a lot of data that needs to pushed to your device. Ethernet connection is almost a must as WiFi signals will struggle to send the stream. Be aware of add-ons that advertise 4K Ultra HD streams in place of upscaled 1080p. Typically 4K streams require a 25-100 Mbps. If your service fails to reach the lowest speed, you will have difficulties trying to view.
