[IGN] Netflix Begins 4K Streaming - Page 5

The occasionally bulk download or 1080p Netflix stream is the most intensive thing they do, and Comcast's streaming performance is actually quite good in our neighborhood.

Comcast offers up to 150/25 if you go with business class, but it's a pretty penny. redface.gif

He lives in Denmark, so it's going to be quite cheap compared to prices in the US. I pay around $55 USD/mo for 120/12 (I get 125/12) (soon to be upgraded to 156/15 for free and for the same monthly cost but I should get 160/16) connection that doesn't have a data cap or other charges.

Does anyone know of a workaround to be able to get the 4k streaming onto a computer. I want to watch UHD House of Cards on my 1440p monitor : /

can't wait for 4K monitors to start selling at under $400.

So if you have the bandwidth you will stream 4K even in a 1080p screen?

From what I understand, this only works on 4k "smart" TVs. Computers are still stuck at 720p with the Silverlight web player, or 1080p if you use the Windows 8 app.

You may see it as marketing hype, but eventually everyone is going to start using it and it's going to force ISPs to offer better services with much higher data caps or even no data caps at all.

When more and more people start using 4K Netflix, more and more people are going to complain to their ISP about how terrible their service is. That is eventually what is going to force them to upgrade their services. Overall this is better for everyone, whether you use Netflix or not.

Just like the massive amount of people already complaining about the data cap's on mobile networks and the carriers just sitting there laughing back at them in return?

There no way to even get 1080p on windows 7? can you use a workaround?

It's nice to know that Netflix are one step ahead of 4K being mainstream; which is years off yet.

seriously, complaining, smearing the company's name, etc, doesnt do anything anymore.
and voting with your dollar is not a solution in many places.
