No home entertainment system is complete without a movie/tv streaming service and no streaming system today is better than Ultra HD 4K streaming available from Netflix. This is no longer your mother’s Netflix..if you’re ready to take your home theater services to insane levels, here’s a few things you need to know.
1. Old TV or Smart TV?
At present you can get away with 4K streaming on your older HD television. You simply need to upgrade the media player. However as 4K streaming advances and your television ages, you may encounter increasing disparity between your device and media stream quality sooner than expected. The answer is to consider going for the new Smart TV at the same time you upgrade to Netflix Ultra HD streaming. At Connected Home, we offer a wide variety of Smart TVs. Here’s a link to the Sony HDR capable 4K model to get acquainted with the features of smart televisions.
2. Netflix 4K Streaming Supports At Least 10 New Devices
Whether it’s a new television or media player, Netflix requires a 4K device to serve up it’s Ultra HD experience. They include Hisense, Panasonic, LG, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Vizio, Toshiba and TCL with more coming into production in the near future. You can check out the Netflix service requirements here. Connected Home has all the expertise to help you compare these TVs and media players.
3. You Can Still Use Roku
If you’re wondering if Netflix Ultra HD will stream through Roku, the answer is yes! If you pair your Ultra HD TV through HDMI Port 1, you can stream through the Roku 4 system. However, you may need to upgrade the old Roku box you’ve always enjoyed to the Roku 4, if you haven’t already. (See for yourself the benefits of choosing the Roku 4 here).
