Crave confirms 4K rollout

https://mobilesyrup.com/2021/08/17/crav ... hromecast/
After the recent announcement of a soft-launch for 4K content on Apple TV, MobileSyrup has received a note from Bell Media has confirmed the launch of 4K content on Crave on Android TV, FireTV and Chromecast platforms.

As Bell mentioned, Crave will be adding additional platforms on the roadmap, with more details being announced when they become available. This news comes after the weekend when users were noticing an ‘Available In 4K’ section on the service.

Crave already confirmed that Wonder Woman 1984 and Zack Snyder’s Justice League are some of the titles that are available in 4K. Now, the company says that Godzilla vs. Kong, which will be available on Crave on Friday, August 20th, will also be in 4K on applicable platforms.

Was the competition Netflix? Any other streaming services in Canada was 4K in 2014?

Netflix Now Streaming in Ultra HD 4K

Netflix: "Five years before Ultra HD 4K becomes mainstream"
4K TV not expected to take off until "most of the TVs on store shelves" are equipped for the format, according to streaming service


Bell CraveTV was launched in December 2014, 4 years after Netflix was available in Canada.

Crave just added 5.1 audio. They're a joke. No incentive to improve the service.
How can an ant carry twenty times its body weight, but root beer floats are still delicious?

They seem to be going after the (late) teens and 20 somethings that most likely do not own a TV and have no desire to... (or maybe don't care much about the size of the screen) https://mobilesyrup.com/2021/10/26/crav ... an-launch/
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Please please don't support this absolutely garbage platform. I only have it because it's included in my property management utilities and even then I only use it to find out what released to download elsewhere because the quality is so bad.

It still doesn't work on my end despite 5.1 audio working on literally every other service and device in my setup. It's been a commonly reported issue for 2 years now that they can't seem to fix
