Japanese broadcaster Fuji Television Network has begun streaming 4K ultra-HD programmes online, becoming the first commercial broadcaster in the country to offer such a service.

The service launched with a documentary based on Hashima Island, also known as ‘Battleship Island’, and a programme introducing illuminated spots in Tokyo. Fuji TV says it will soon screen a drama it jointly produced with China.

The programmes can be viewed on Fuji Television’s paid video-streaming service Fuji TV on Demand by computers equipped with 4K displays, but not on smartphones.
