No longer is high definition at the cutting edge of technology, with Blu-ray about to celebrate it's 10th birthday on the cusp of UHD 4K players and discs appearing on the market, and video streaming services such as Netflix investing heavily to acquire content in native 4K. But with the first evidence of the heavily protected content streams being circumvented, studios will be wary to release what is esentially carbon copies of studio masters to the world.




According to TorrentFreak, pirate group iON have released the first episode of 'Breaking Bad' in native 2160p, with the massive 18GB file current accessible via public and private trackers. While your everyday PC or laptop will struggle to playback the file smoothly due to the huge data rates, the first leak of proper 4K content will no doubt have many tech fans eager to see the difference.
