Get the whole scoop on streaming in 4K, devices, pixels, and more.
To watch content from Prime Video you’ll need a 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) display and a device that supports the 4K UHD format. This includes 4K compatible Smart TVs and streaming media players (like Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick). You can also view 4K UHD content playing 4K UHD Blu-ray Discs. Whichever way you go, disc or streaming, you’ll need the latest HDMI cable to ensure you get features such as HDR.
Yes. Ultra HD Blu-ray players will play your 4K UHD Discs as well as your Blu-ray Discs and even your DVD’s.
Ultra HD Blu-ray Discs cannot be played in a standard Blu-ray Disc player or DVD player.
Yes, the video will switch to a format your device can support (e.g. HD instead of UHD or SD instead of HD).
On Prime Video you can find movies and TV shows either on our 4K Ultra HD web page, or on your 4K enabled device by looking for rows labeled "4K Ultra HD" or "4K HDR". To find 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays or DVDs, visit the Movies and TV category 4K Ultra HD store.
For 4K Ultra HD sources like an Ultra HD Blu-ray player or a 4K streaming set-top box, purchasing an HDMI cable that’s rated to handle 4K bandwidth will provide the highest-quality picture and sound. The packaging, the cable itself, or the product description will typically tell you if the HDMI cable is fast enough for 4K. Look for HDMI cables labeled “Premium HDMI Cables” as these are optimized for Ultra HD performance.
