Xbox Store is getting 4K HDR content, starting with The Lego Batman movie

Looking to lay your eyes on some nice looking new content? Those who invested in an Xbox One S will finally be getting a peak at the 4K HDR content that they were promised, as the Movies & TV app has begun selling The Lego Batman Movie.¬†Strangely enough, this is the first major film to be sold on Xbox One that’s available in 4K UHD – and the first film period in the marketplace to offer High Dynamic Range (HDR.) The standard definition of the film costs $15, the high def version costs $20, and the fancy 4K HDR version will cost you $30.

Of course, you’re not going to be able to get the full experience of the 4K HDR version of The Lego Batman Movie unless you have a 4K TV that supports High Dynamic Range – so don’t spend the money unless your hardware is up to date. You’ll also need to keep in mind that you’ll need an Internet bandwidth of 20 Mbps on your Xbox One. If that’s all in order, you can go and buy the movie right now in the Movies & TV app on your console.
