I don't even know what a 4k player is. Sounds like a bear at a gay bar.

ed, your tv is made of wood. It is pointless researching this.

K. Here is the deal... I can download 4k uhd material onto a 4Tb drive. This plugs directly into my TV which has a menu for playing.

Ergo no disk player needed

Was that a snide reference to streaming?

Talk to me. I don't think that you get 4k when you stream unless you have crazy high connection speeds.

I wish Rob was here. He'd know.

No.

Cannot speak for the US. In the UK, to stream 4K you need a 4k TV, a 4k device such as a firestick (amongst others) and around 20-25mbps min connection speed. Most providers here now piss on this.

Older 4k tvs dont have the HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding)/H.265 compression standard so you need to check.

Some streaming services charge for 4k content, Netflix does here.

You would know.






Not. . . .

Fortunately they tend to shit in the woods. A person can get the hell out of there before they get back.
