11 Best Streaming Services with 4k for Cord-cutting

Much has been said about the merits of 4k viewing: with extra pixels packed into the screen, a video in 4k (also known as ultra high-definition or UHD) looks crisper, cleaner, and clearer. If you're looking for the ultimate viewing experience, you might want to consider 4k, if you haven't made the switch already.

But 4k also comes with its own criteria. For one, you have to make sure your internet is fast enough to support such high-def viewing. You also need a compatible device, which will usually come in the form of a smart TV, a streaming device, or a gaming console. The final requirement is, of course, having 4k titles available. 

Enter streaming services. Not all of them offer 4k options, and even then, they might charge 4k viewing at a premium. But there are still plenty to choose from. Netflix and Amazon Prime should still be your go-to when it comes to quantity, while HBO Max comes highly recommended when it comes to quality. Below is a full round-up of your 4k streaming options.
