What Do You Need From Your Home Theatre?

Immersive imagery with a 4K or 8K TV

Open up a world of clarity, definition and texture in your home-viewing with a 4K TV or 8K TV. The resolution of 4K or 8K invites you to immerse yourself in something new - join an animated world, get in on the action or adventure, or just enjoy some downtime together as a family.

Say goodbye to anticlimactic film scenes with dull imagery and give your favourite movies and shows the justice they deserve, with explosive visuals and cinema-quality definition in the comfort of your own home. And what if you want to watch something that hasn’t been mastered with 4K? No stress! Everything you watch will be automatically upscaled into 4K or 8K for stunningly vivid colour and detail.
