Have a Shield TV, or a Mi Box, or a Chromecast Ultra? Each of these products can display ultra-high definition video (with a corresponding display), although you can only find this format in a small number of online sources. However, it seems like Google is now adding UHD videos to Google Play. According to Android Police, a small number of movies now show 4K as being “available” and users are able to select that as a purchase.
UHD videos are more expensive than their counterparts, and there is no option to update your collection, likely due to content restrictions imposed by the content creators. One example of purchasing options is shown above in a photo from Android Police. It indicates that 4K video will be coming to the Android TV version of the app, and the price for purchasing will be roughly double high definition.
The feature is still rolling out, so don’t don’t be surprised if it’s not there.
