I have a 55x900a. Am I right in assuming I can get House of Cards in 4K if I use Netflix app on the TV? I have a 100mb/s internet line.

Unfortunately not. You would need the X10 player to receive pure
4K Netflix streaming. However, HOC in up-scaled 1080p has a stunning PQ, so enjoy it.

There are some so called XBMC Andriod 4K players on eBay. I am assuming they will not work either, right?

From my perspective, uncharted territory. Your safe choices are to enjoy the excellent PQ of the up-scaled 1080p image (my recommendation), or shell out $500-700 for the media player (which is not a very good deal). Honestly, given the paucity of streaming 4K content at this time, and the quality of 1080p, you are better off sitting on the sidelines until other options become available.

FYI. I'm a F1 racing fan and I just found out that the last grand prix race in Singapore was shot with 4k cameras for the first time. This is hopefully good news for the 4k TV world and hopefully we'll see more content trickle through that we can watch on our TV's. Hey, maybe I'll be able to stream a UHD signal for the final races of the season! (Pipe dream, I know).

Has anyone successfully paired any mobile phone with the 55X900A via bluetooth feature? My Andriod phone finds the TV on it's available bluetooth devices. It also gives me a four digit code but I don't seem to be able to find any place in the TV menus to put the code for the pairing to be completed.

I thought it was only 1 month free?

According to the manual you can only pair a bluetooth mouse - actually up to 3 of them - no joke - which is only available for browser apps.
