So looks like Amazon prime is now streaming 4k content. I'm assuming this TV is not compatible with that service. This is really beginning to bum me out. I have the original X1 media player. Really no option for me to do any streaming of conent is there?

Sorry for the noobish questions, but is there a cheaper alternative to 4k streaming besides the FMPX10?

Do I have to buy a 4k blu ray player for blu rays or can my PS4 do that?

Thanks in advance!

For the last two comments. I don't have a X1 or X10 but my understanding is that the X1 can't stream and that in Canada we can order a X5 for $400 CDN. That's cheaper than the X10 but doesn't give you Sony's 4K Unlimited. I am sitting tight right now and will wait longer to see what shakes out over the next year. I noticed GoPro just released a 4K 30hz video camera recording in MP4 and Sony's consumer 4K camera records in XAVCS both of which the X5 and X10 can handle. I shoot a lot of photos and viewing them in 4K on my 55" was the main reason that I bought this set. I was a little surprised the TV can't play any 4K files but I'm patient. Now if I get a GoPro for Xmas, that changes everything!

I've been waiting so long for a 4K set top compatible Netflix and now Amazon Prime player to use with this TV other than the FMP X-10. I hope something comes out by February for House of Cards Season 3.

For me, I'm looking forward to a 4K BlueRay player which I hope will have streaming and 4K file playing capabilities. Late 2015 as I understand it. FWIW, I see all major TV manufacturers pushing 4K very aggressively and the pricing is dropping by the week. People argue as to whether 4k is noticeably better than 1080 but when I compare my photos saved in both 1080 and 2160 resolutions,, there is no argument that 4K looks better. And that is even with the 1080 upscaled to 2160.
