Sony's 4K TV Ships With a Store Display-Like Hard Disk Server

Posted Fri Nov 30, 2012 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Ten films will be preloaded, including 'Bridge on the River Kwai,' 'Taxi Driver,' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man.'

When Sony first announced that their upcoming UHDTV was going to come with native 4K content, we naturally assumed that it would be built right in to the set. Instead, folks that pick up the XBR-84X900 will be getting a hard disk server to go with their TV, a bit like the way stores are set up with demo material.

You'll be getting more than just clips though. Ten movies will be loaded on to the hard drive, including those listed above, the new 'Total Recall,' 'Bad Teacher,' 'The Other Guys' and, regrettably, the Adam Sandler film 'That's My Boy.'

Sony says that more titles and clips will be added to the server as time goes on, which could be a very cool setup for owners.
