Hmm.. to me, streaming is streaming... I guess I really don’t differentiate it like that... what I need is a device that doesn’t force upscaling and will pass the content through in native format. Using apps on the TV affords me the opportunity to only upscale in the TV itself and that’s how I want it. When I had DirecTV, that box was set for native resolution output as is the UHD BD player and the TV handled all of the upscaling.
Streaming devices all seem to shove upscaling down my throat and they all suck at it.
