I use Amazon prime, but really not all that much content (for free at least). Used my brother's netflix for a bit until they removed the 4k stuff for all but the premium plan. Xbox-s coming soon for 4k blu-ray.

Denon AVR-3803 - RTi-70 Fronts - FXi-30 Surrounds - RTi-38 Back Surrounds - Csi-40 Center - PSW350 Sub - Samsung un60JS8000 SUHD

Vudu has the most 4k HDR content, so I've been using that on my LG TV

Netflix doesn't have a lot of 4k movies on there now, but a lot of their original programming is.

Both Netflix and Amazon have a good selection of quality original programming in 4K.
Makes it harder to watch broadcast TV. I keep wishing HBO, etc. had a UHD option.

Moved to streaming section.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Netflix and YouTube mostly. I only use VUDU for my UV collection, and UV codes don't give you the UHD version.

I'm looking forward to Google Play Movies offering 4k soon.

I use Netflix mostly. As others have mentioned there's not a ton of content in any one place but thankfully most of Netflix's original programming is in 4k. That's just icing on the cake considering their shows are usually greatness.

Vudu is a movie purchase service. Amazon has both subscription and per movie purchase models.
