As I posted on the Netflix rental thread, billion dollar deals for older movies never made sense to me. Besides, I've seen many of them on BD. Also, Netflix has the new Disney deal starting early...

Netflix producing their own series and now adding feature films to that formula is a big plus, especially considering their subscription fee. Most of their Epix movies aren't available until they...

I have DTV and that was my point. UHD players will likely take a back seat to UHD broadcasts and streaming despite the fact that they will offer the best quality. ;)

Wow, I didn't realize what I...

That's subjective and remains to be seen. http://www.wired.com/2015/03/netflix-will-remake-image-tv/. Also, HDR/UHD content is still limited and I'm not ready to give up my plasma anytime soon. ;)

Haven't watched Sneaky Pete, but what surprises me is that both Netflix's Marco Polo and Sense 8 produce detail and pop that rivals some of the best BD's I've seen. However, unlike BD which is a...

So far, most content I have seen with both services is similar in PQ, with the exception of some of Netflix's own programing, as mentioned in my previous post.

I wouldn't doubt that, but based on what I've seen tonight, IMO, It still doesn't come close to Netflix's own 4k shot content. Don't get me wrong, I've also seen some 1080p movies on Netflix that...

It could also be that your sets needs a calibration, especially if it has a lot of hours on it. I also agree with Randy, custom or cinema modes are a better choice then THX which is usually a bit...

In the mid 1960's the average cost of a 21-23'' color TV was about $500.00. That's over $3500.00 by today's pricing. Over time we have gone cheaper then cheap...
