Samsung teams up with Comcast, Netflix to get ultra-high definition content to its new TVs

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Samsung, the world's largest maker of TVs, is tackling the problem of getting ultra-high-definition content to its new TV sets by teaming up with the Internet streaming services of Comcast, Netflix and Amazon.

Like other TV makers, Samsung is betting that a quadrupling of the resolution of TV sets will get consumers interested in upgrading their existing, high-definition sets. The problem is that cable services and Blu-ray discs don't support the bump in resolution, leaving the ultra-sharp sets without ultra-sharp content.

On Monday, at the International CES gadget show in Las Vegas, Samsung said it would get UHD content through partnerships with U.S. streaming services, bypassing traditional cable and disc delivery. Internet delivery will place high demands on home broadband connections.
