Any good "free" content out there through Prime or anything else other than the 2 minute clips in the Dolby app on the TV? Should I look into buying a 4k UHD player, or subscribing to anything else if I can afford it for content? I see the TV has Fandango and Vudu and some other services to buy and or rent movies from, if I am interested in potentially buying or renting a movie to see my TV in action, is one service more recommended or preferable to another? Would I be better off buying a player and physical media if I was really interested in purchasing a movie instead of doing so on a digital platform? Really would like to enjoy the TV as much as possible but currently limited to cable/Prime/Laptop and 1080p consoles. My laptop has GTX 1080 and can output 4k without issue, but I don't know if it can do UHD abilities, and even so all of my digital movies on my hard drives are 1080p or lower.
get a UHD player and get some UHD/DV content. nothing is better than that, streaming is nice and convenient, but, nothing right now can touch a good UHD player, period. make sure you have a "premium certified" HDMI cable and you set your hdmi port to 2.0. that will give you your best overall selection and quality of HDR/DV material.
of course as far as streaming goes, Netflix is next in line with DV content.
