. I assume you would need a PC with a 4K capable graphics card to use as the Netflix player.
A bit OT but a partial answer to your question.
I have the Sony XBR 84X900 flat panel and could stream any of the videos having only a Comcast internet speed of 30 Mpbs.
There was no stuttering or any artifacts noticed. There was a decided difference in the PQ when moving up in the numbers.
I say numbers because I cannot understand what the numeric figure followed by MP is supposed to be. Maybe someone could explain it.
The PQ is not as good as the Sony 4k player and the lower numbers were not even as good as dvd. It seemed to have more resolution but then again it was a very soft picture
without a lot of snap like the Sony 4K player can provide
Other things I noticed.
You could easily fast forward.
The wait for the download before the film started was about 15 to 20 seconds
The audio was at 640 kbit/s. Higher than most OT TV but.....only in 2 channel.
And....... You coud not search online from the tv for the 4K titles. You received zero results.
I had to use my laptop to search and came up with the video's name and then used the video's name to search via theTV interface. I wonder if Netflix did that for a reason ?
Here are the 4K video clips they have on line:
El Fuente: An example of 4K at 5994 MP
El Fuente: An example of 4K at 30 MP
El Fuente: An example of 4K at 2997 MP
El Fuente: An example of 4K at 50 MP
El Fuente: An example of 4K at 24 frames per second.
Could 50 MP be the European format and 5994 the US format ?
But then what is the difference between 30 MP and 2997 MP ?
And they have 24 fps but not 60 fps
