In the past few decades, there has been a silent contest between the Hollywood film industry and the television industry (including TV manufacturers). In the face of the advancement of television technology, Hollywood has successively adopted narrower screens, 3D movies and other technologies. Try to maintain the appeal of watching movies in cinemas. However, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, Hollywood is once again facing the impact of technological advancements in television and the Internet. Under the threat of ultra-high-definition (4K) large-screen televisions and original online works, the number of moviegoers in the United States this year may increase. The first decline in more than 20 years. In the past few confrontations, Hollywood still has the upper hand. The experience of watching a movie in a movie theater is still very different from watching TV at home. Hollywood and the TV industry have achieved 'well water does not break the riverIn the middle of the world, the future of Hollywood was once again overshadowed.   Recently, multiple news broke out in the US technology and consumer electronics industries have made Hollywood filmmakers fidget.   Last month, American TV manufacturer Vizio announced that it would launch a batch of cheap 4K large-screen TVs. For example, the price of a 50-inch large-screen 4K TV will drop to a few hundred dollars, which is far lower than the previous price of thousands of dollars.   Then, copyright video giants Netflix and Westin Pictures made another announcement that shocked Hollywood. The two parties announced that the 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' sequel to be released next year will also be broadcast for free to paying members on the Netflix website on the day of its premiere in theaters (no separate viewing fee will be charged). In addition, in addition to the Imax theater line, other movie theaters will not allow this film to be played.   Although Netflix did not provide an explanation, 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Sequel' is likely to be broadcast live on the Internet with 4K Ultra HD technology. At present, Netflix has adopted ultra-high-definition technology in the shooting of some original dramas (such as the follow-up series of 'House of Cards').   The San Francisco Chronicle pointed out that before the emergence of ultra-high-definition large-screen TVs, movie theaters still had an advantage over home TVs in terms of film quality. However, the picture on a 4K TV is clearer and will be comparable to a movie theater.   At present, a major problem with 4K TVs is the lack of 4K film sources. However, as online video is geared towards 4K image quality changes, and 4K televisions become the mainstream, more movies and TV series in the future will also be filmed with 4K technology.  In fact, before 4K technology, high-definition (HD) large-screen TVs have begun to have a certain degree of impact on Hollywood and movie theaters.   Hollywood's box office performance was poor this summer. It is estimated that in 2014, the number of film viewers in the United States will be lower than the level of more than 20 years for the first time.   The San Francisco Chronicle stated that as the price of more 4K TVs drops to an acceptable level, the activities of watching movies in the future will gradually shift from the cinema to the living room at home.
