Sony has launched a new streaming service called Bravia Core that supposedly boasts the same level of video quality that’s offered by physical formats such as Ultra HD Blu-ray. As the company explains in its press release, Bravia Core’s higher streaming quality is enabled by a special technology called Pure Stream, which allows for streaming bit rates as high as 80 Mbps. The service is exclusive to BRAVIA XR TVs such as the BRAVIA XR MASTER Series A90J (4K OLED) and Z9J (8K LED).

BRAVIA XR TV owners who sign up for BRAVIA CORE can redeem movies from a selection of at least 300 titles including Venom, Peter Rabbit, Ghostbusters, Blade Runner 2049 and Jumanji: The Next Level using BRAVIA CORE credits. There are 10 movie credits included with the A90J and Z9J televisions and 5 with the rest of the BRAVIA XR models. Also, with BRAVIA CORE sign up, BRAVIA XR TV owners are subscribed to a separate, amazing selection of movies to stream any time and as many times as they like, in up to 4K HDR quality.
