It's almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. This week, it's time to settle down in front of your brand new big-screen TV, with your internet connection cranked to maximum power — these are the best visually stunning, ultra-high-fidelity TV series and movies to make the best use of your 4K HDR TV.

Sony was first to market with both 4K UHD TV and Android TV in Australia. From the director’s lens to the living room, Sony is a proven leader of innovation and technology in home entertainment.

We've re-jigged our existing Netflix Movie Night series, and brought in Australia's other popular subscription video on demand services — Stan and Presto — to give you a broader selection of movies and TV shows to enjoy. On all three services, you can watch from your tablet or smartphone, on your PC or laptop, through your Smart TV, or through a media streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast, although specifics can vary.

Stan costs a flat $10 per month, Netflix can cost from $9 to $15 per month, and Presto is $10 to $15 depending which package you choose.
