Amazon has made good on its promise to offer 4K content to Prime members at no additional cost. Available titles are limited at this time, but new movies and TV shows will be continually added to the service. Some of the best options available right now include Alpha House and Orphan Black. You can also buy 4K movies from Amazon Instant Video like American Hustle, Captain Phillips, and This Is the End.

Ultra High Definition TVs have been tumbling in cost throughout the past year. From top brands like VIZIO and LG to budget brands like Seiki, UHDTV prices are dropping across the board. And now with Netflix, Amazon, and of course, YouTube, offering 4K streaming, the perception of 4K content being nonexistent is becoming more specious.
