Stingray Launches The First Linear 4K Ultra-HD Channel in North-America

Stingray (TSX: RAY.A; RAY.B), a leading business-to-business multi-platform music provider, announced today that its Stingray Ambiance channel is now available to Videotron subscribers in dazzling 4K UHD, a North-American first, by tuning in to channel 953. This launch places Stingray at the forefront of Ultra HD development.

“We have seen a significant increase in worldwide demand for engaging Ultra HD content and we are proud to be the first in North-American to launch a channel that offers 4K UHD content 24/7,” said Mathieu Péloquin, Senior Vice-President, Marketing and Communications of Stingray. “Ultra HD technology will become the new standard in the linear channel industry. Stingray is a company known for its innovations; as such we are thrilled to offer the highest picture quality available on the market to Videotron subscribers with a 4K Ultra-HD illico terminal and a UHD television.”

Stingray Ambiance is a channel that transforms any home into a soothing and relaxing oasis, thanks to its unique combination of rich, beautiful scenery with custom soundtracks. With this launch in Ultra HD, a technology that offers four times the resolution of standard HD, Stingray is taking the multi-sensorial experience offered by Stingray Ambiance to a whole new level of colour, contrast and brightness. Subscribers without UHD screens will continue to enjoy Stingray Ambiance’s beautiful sceneries from around the world in stunning high resolution on channel 553.

Stingray Ambiance’s programming is curated to accompany viewers every moment of the day. With Stingray Ambiance, the day can begin with a sunrise over a Hawaiian beach, slow down mid-afternoon on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, and end while the sun paints vivid colours in the desert sky. Every image is especially captured for Stingray by a team of experienced nature videographers.
