Together with Sky, Samsung is streaming an 8k version of the third season of the series Das Boot. We reveal how to get the Sky series for free.
Since June, the new paid video streaming service Wow has succeeded Sky Ticket. Sky Deutschland GmbH, which developed the platform in coordination with the other Sky branches, is behind the new service. That’s the name of the Sky streaming service internationally Now, but since this name will probably be associated with RTL Now for some time in German-speaking countries (this service is now called RTL+), Sky decided on Wow without further ado. In the future, Wow content will be streamed in 4K. Together with Samsung, Sky is going one step further this year. The third season of the series “Das Boot” produced by Sky will set sail in 8K in July.
Sky series Das Boot is free to stream
The series can be streamed with a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels on any Samsung TV with an 8k UHD resolution from model year 2020. For this purpose, Samsung and Sky are making the third season available in an 8K version exclusively on the free streaming service Samsung TV Plus. In addition to a compatible smart TV, an internet connection with at least 40 Mbit per second is required. There is also a cashback campaign running until July 31, 2022. If you buy a new Neo QLED 8K TV, you can get up to 1,200 euros back, depending on the TV model.
All South Korean TVs from model year 2016 have the app pre-installed. There is also the Samsung TV Plus app for Android devices in the Google Play Store. Pluto TV, for example, can be viewed via the free service. Earlier this year, Pluto TV offered free viewing of Star Trek Discovery season 4 with commercials. However, Pluto TV only broadcasts linearly, i.e. not on demand.
