I have the 4k streaming package from Netflix, and I currently stream with my Blu-ray player. In order to take advantage of the 4k streaming, does the player need to be a 4k player?

I don't have a 4k TV, so I haven't bought a 4k player yet.

Thanks.

Yes, whatever you are using to stream (BD player, Smart TV, Roku, Shield, etc.) has to be 4K. In the case of the BD player, it can't just be a 4K up-sampling player to my knowledge. It needs to be a true 4K player. But if your TV isn't 4K, there's no benefit to streaming 4K. Also, unless your screen is 65" or larger, you won't see much benefit from 4K resolution. What you do gain though, is HDR color. That is worth having 4K, even with smaller screens.

Unless you have three other people on the subscription there is no value to having the 4K subscription without having a 4K TV to view those shows. You are wasting money.

That's why we have the 4k package. I plan to buy a 75" 4k TV and 4k Blu-ray player soon.

Thanks.

@Jim McC, as long as you buy a 4K TV, then you will have 4K streaming from your device, unless you get a TV that has internal apps.

I bought a TCL back when the brand first started out .. they were unproven and pretty much unknown at the time .. it's been a good TV .. I just wish they made a 70" model ..

Netflix will stop working on some older Samsung TVs next month

Quote:
Netflix yesterday said that a small number of older Samsung TVs would no longer support its service as of December 2, which the Korean giant says is due to technical limitations. "We've notified all impacted members with more information about alternative devices we support so they can keep enjoying Netflix uninterrupted," said a Netflix representative.
In addition to the older Samsung smart televisions no longer being supported, the first two Roku models and some Vizio TVs will also lose support from next month.

The Roku devices listed are all first and second generation players. They don't support Netflix profiles or the auto-play feature that so many people despise. That's going to make some people unhappy, especially losing a player that don't auto-play those preview videos. Auto-playing videos is one of several reasons I don't even subscribe to Netflix any longer.

I'm pretty sure I got notice from NF that my 2 PS3's will no longer be supported after the first of the year .. they are both on TV's that are not used much, so not a huge loss .. hardware gets rotated out eventually ..

Both are excellent BD players, though

My Roku HD from 2012 was moved some time ago to my TV in the Kitchen. It has the original frill free Netflix interface and works great.

I don't know if the PS3's will still play NF after they get rotated out .. they would, of course, still have the latest updates up to January anyway .. maybe I'll get lucky ..
