Are all 4K movies and channels (except for the nature channel and documentairies) pay per view?

I just bought a 4k ultra hd tv and upgraded to the genie.

 

It lloks like to watch any movie in 4K costs money?  Otherwise they are all pay per view no matter how old they are.   is this true?

4K Requirements:

 

HR54 Genie on non 4K tv (can connect to 4K tv, but will not provide 4K content)

C61 Mini Genie Client (wired only at this time) on 4K tv

4K tv must support HDCP 2.2, HDMI 2.0, and 60fps (frames per second)

Directv Installation, 4K tv must be there

Package Select or above as of 12/15/2016 (used to be only Ultimate or Premier)

 

At this time there are only three 4K channels. 1 regular, 1 select events, 1 PPV.

Even if you have multiple C61 clients, only one tv can be using a 4K channel at a time.

Yes the only 4K content that is regularly on is the PPV movies, it doesn't look like the regular channels are jumping on the 4K bandwagon yet.
