Does anyone know it there is a way to upgrade model XBR-65X850A to be able to stream 4K content from Netflix? or Amazon Prime?
I was told it needs: HEVC H.265 codec and maybe also: HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0


Seems pretty bad that I bought a Sony 4K tv and can't even watch 4K content that is now available.
I would think Sony with offer a solution.


Thanks for any help! Matt

Didn't you say you had the X10? That is the only source of 4K material you'll have. You'd have the Sony 4K programs you buy from Sony, or a 4K Netflix subscription that would play from your X10 back to your TV. Amazon 4K on the X10 due soon.

Your A TV has HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 but does not have .265 --- and as for Sony doing anything about A models, that is so far out of sight, I'd say you're peeing on a tree that's already suffering from uric shock syndrome.

Thanks for the info. I don't have the X10 yet. Not sure I want to spend that much for limited content. I just wanted to make sure the X10 would play 4K content on my model in case I did decide to upgrade to X10 Media player. Do you know which HDMI input is HDCP 2.2 compliant?
