Amazon has a nice catalogue of 4k content if you’re willing to do a little searching. Just like Netflix, they lack a 4k only category and have resorted to using the 4k logo as an identifier. When you’re looking for UHD content, finding something specific can take ages without the right resources. Here are four steps that will get you access to all 4k content from Amazon Prime.
1. Check Your Television For 4k Compatibility
This can be done by looking at the back of the television for a model number, or by looking at the instruction manual. Either method will help you find the information needed to decipher the resolution of your television.
2. Check Your Internet Speed
Google has a built in internet speed checker. Type “check my internet speed” into the google homepage and press enter. This will give you a download average to measure against the required 15mbps for the 4k service. Anything under 15mbps means you may have stuttering or buffering issues while playing.
3. Bookmark An Up To Date Website
The current best site for an Amazon Prime video list is http/axeetech.com/2018/01/02/amazon-prime-video-2018-all-4k-uhd-hdr-content-titles-so-far/ which updates less frequently than its Netflix counterpart. It still does a better job than the search algorithm at Amazon which is hit or miss.
4. Filter Out The Content
Some of the movies and television shows on the list are included in your prime subscription. The others have to be purchased either through rental or by buying the digital version.
