Sony took another step today to inject Ultra HD technology into the mainstream by making their previously-announced 4K video download service available for immediate use. This new service, dubbed Video Unlimited 4K, will provide owners of the Sony FMP-X1 Media Player access to over 70 4K Ultra HD feature films and TV shows. The only problem is that this player will only work with Sony 4K TV sets. On the plus side, these TVs recently received a 20% price cut and you will save $200 on the media player if you bundle it with a new TV.

Amazingly, the media prices aren’t too out of control. A TV show purchase is $4 and full movie rentals start at $8 for a 24-hour rental or $30 for a purchase. Available titles include the hit TV drama, Breaking Bad, as well as feature films like Moneyball, Ghostbusters, The Amazing Spider-Man, and more.

Ebay via Tiger Direct is offering a new Seiki 50-Inch 4K Ultra Definition HDTV for $899 shipped (SE50UY04). This is up to $600 off the regular listing, $190 cheaper than Amazon, and $67 off our previous mention. This LED HDTV features 5000:1 contrast ratio, 3840 x 2160 resolution and 3 HDMI inputs.

Amazon reviewers give this 4K TV 4 stars and Gizmodo’s hands on impressions were quite positive:

We got a chance to watch 4K content on Seiki’s 3840 x 2160, 120Hz LED beast for about 30 minutes today, and it was totally breathtaking. Much of the footage was stock 4K so, you know, it was amazing and perfectly shot and calibrated. But even with that knowledge in mind my brain was bombed by the clarity and detail of the picture. It’s hard to get over the thrill of squinting at a TV up close and not seeing a pixel or a blur.
