(February 4, 2021) Entering its 20th year of innovation, Kaleidescape has no peer when it comes to downloadable High Definition and 4K UHD movie content. Kaleidescape's customers currently enjoy access to thousands upon thousands of films sourced from 40 studios, all delivered with pristine video and lossless audio (yes, that includes cutting edge immersive sound presentations).
Until recently, Kaleidescape customers had to purchase every movie they wanted to view. Now, owners of the company's Strato products in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom can download and play rented movies. Once downloaded, rental movies can be reserved for up to 30 days, with a 48-hour unlimited viewing window upon pressing play. And if an owner chooses to purchase a rented movie, Kaleidescape will apply half the rental price to the overall cost.
This feature gives Strato owners the ability to enjoy content they might not otherwise choose to own while also providing them an opportunity to preview a film before committing to purchase.
Kaleidescape says its US-based customers can rent more than 8,000 4K and HD titles, with over 5,500 available in Canada and 700 in the UK. While not all titles eligible for purchase in 4K can be rented in 4K, all Atmos titles can be enjoyed with a lossless immersive sound presentation. Kaleidescape is actively locking down rental agreements with studios, so look for more titles to become available in the weeks and months ahead.
Special features, such as making-of segments, deleted scenes, audio commentary, and the like, are reserved for movie purchases only. However, bookmarked Kaleidescape scenes and songs are included with every rental. Additionally, some – not all – films still in theaters can be rented for a premium price.
