And, from all opinions I've heard, 4k Netflix is about on par with a Blu-ray. But you're still missing lossless sound. So there's that.
So, yeah, BD's are the best PQ when it comes to both 1080p and 4k.
I was wondering about this with a 1080P Netflix movie I watched recently. The highest encode bitrate was something like 2.5mbps for 1080P. And for the bitrate it looked similar to the 5.8mbps Netflix titles I had watched. So I was thinking they used HEVC.
I never got around to checking it on a non HEVC Device to see what that showed.
