Sony: no bundled 4K content for Aussies

Sony's promised "preloaded, native 4K entertainment" with its AU$25,000 TV is a US-only offer.

As reported earlier in the week , Sony has said on its blog that it will be providing "the world's first 4K Ultra HD delivery solution, complete with preloaded, native 4K entertainment" on its 84-inch KD-84X9000 Ultra HD TV.

The promise was for "full-length feature Hollywood productions, and available exclusively to purchasers of Sony's 84-inch 4K Ultra HD TV".

We said we'd check in with Sony Australia to see whether the offer is for local purchases, as well. Sony got back to us with a response — and it's a resounding no.

"At this stage, this is a local US initiative with Sony Pictures Entertainment."

So, sadly, if you're an Australian who's willing to spend AU$25,000 on a 4K TV, there's still a bit of a question around what you'll be watching.
