Roy Price, Direc­tor of Ama­zon Stu­dios:

Als Pre­mium-Lie­fe­rant für ori­gi­nale Inhalte sind wir sehr gespannt auf 4K und die Zukunft der Ultra HD Tech­no­lo­gie, vor allem da wir im nächs­ten Jahr Drama-Serien in die­ser Auf­lö­sung umset­zen.

Dies beinhal­tet auch unsere erste Drama-Serie für die wir nächs­tes Jahr grü­nes Licht geben wer­den – Wir glau­ben das der Zuschauer es lie­ben wird, die Serien in best­mög­li­cher Auf­lö­sung zu ver­fol­gen und wir kön­nen es gar nicht erwar­ten ihm genau das zu lie­fern.“
