House of Cards, Bloodline, Narcos, Marco Polo are all in 4K. All pretty good shows too. HBO has Game of Thrones and a few other hits but they will need to get an app out there for HBO Now or HBO-Go...

Own a pile of Episode speakers in my house. Mostly of the 300 and 500 series, in-ceiling, directional in-ceiling, in-wall and on-wall versions.

Consider using gear that is IP controlled. IRule, Crestron and other control schemes are not entirely needed if you keep the gear simple. Anecdote but my family uses...
