NanoTech Entertainment (OTCPINK: NTEK), a pioneer in bringing the 4K Ultra HD experience to consumers, announced today that Hollywood innovator Rod Riegel has joined NanoTech’s Content Advisory Board. Riegel will provide strategic guidance to NanoTech on its content acquisition partnerships as the company continues to build upon the largest library of 4K Ultra HD content available via its UltraFlix dedicated 4K Channel.

“UltraFlix is poised to become a key driver of next-generation entertainment distribution services for Ultra HD programming - a revolutionary format destined to become the de-facto standard for content consumption,” said Riegel. “I’m thrilled to join NanoTech’s advisory team, and look forward to helping the company maximize their efforts in the 4K content space and deliver on the mandate to pioneer ‘The Future of Television.’”
