Satellite provider DirecTV has just announced a new UHD capable satellite box, the 4K Genie Mini. This new set top box works with the existing Genie whole-home DVR, but provides the proper decoding for UHD-capable displays.

The 4K Mini Genie has built-in decoding for Digital Dolby Plus, is HDMI 2.0, and will cost you an additional $6.50 per month. While DirecTV says the cost to buy the 4K Mini Genie will vary by subscriber, the value of the box is $99.

While only a small handful of newer Samsung UHD displays are "DirecTV 4K Ready", this new box will allow any UHD display with HDMI 2.0 to access DTV's UHD content.
