I just tested Netflix for the first time today since they are now also widely available in Asia.
I tired it on my Ps4 and not having real 24p is a real deal breaker for me.

I prefere watching movies from my nut running openelec where I'm getting proper refresh rate switching and DTS-HD, TrueHd and Atmos.
I will have to look into getting netflix to run on Openelec or else I'll have to get a UHD Bluray player once they hit the market.

Can you get NVIDIA Shield TV where you are? I believe that it can output 24p Netflix content at 24Hz.

Indeed there is a setting on the Shield TV for 24p but I turned it off as it was annoyingly dropping frames on 25p stuff on Netflix. Ideally it should recognize the frame rate as 24p and only do run it then as some BD players do. Not sure why that would be complicated.

Yes dynamic frame rate switching is essential.
That's why I love XbmC/Kodi so much since it plays all in it's original frame-rate.

I can not buy the shield here but I might get one when I go to Hong Kong the next time.

The reason i did not get one yet is that Kodi does not fully support Audio HD bit streaming with the Shield.
There is an experimental build but it's still early beta.

I have got various device running Kodi on Openelec and I tried to integrate Netflix.
It kind of works but only stereo sound and no frame rate switching since the video is playing inside of Chromium...
