Am I correct that my new tv is already outdated and won't be able to stream the 4k content from Netflix?
They haven't received all the details yet but I doubt you need to worry long term about Netflix 4K. If the experiment works they will either update the firmware in the Roku units or new versions of the streaming boxes will have the 4K decoder options.
Your BIG problem is not Netflix, it's that the 2013 sets were all released pre-HDMI 2.0 which will become the standard for 4K transmission. I thought I read where Sony promised some kind of upgrade path for their 2013 4K set though so perhaps that will be available to you.
