    General Discussion 4K UHD streaming whys & wherefors?

    Thanks. The LG streaming app does not have PBS. I emailed PBS and there are no plans for LG. So I'm considering the new Roku Express 4K+. It lacks Dolby Vision, Atmos (no problem) and an Ethernet port. If ac wireless is not satisfactory for 4K UHD streaming (it will be located only 6ft from the...

    Yes, the frame rate changes only occur during transitions to/from menus, ads etc. Customer complaints were great enough that Netflix then Hulu stopped support of 24fps output (and reverted to 60fps) on the Roku Ultra.

    Thanks for the reply. I'd heard Disney+ was good from a Film Collector YT channel comparison of streaming vs UHD disc. Just wonderin' are those iTunes upgrades new transfers with HDR/Atmos etc or simply upscaled HD? Which player do you use? Is it providing native frame rate streaming?

    I presently have two Roku 3s, an Express and an LG B8 TV. When compared, Blu-ray movie picture quality bests streaming from Netflix or Prime. I'm buying fewer Blu-rays now and don't want to upgrade to 4K UHD discs. So I started investigating 4K UHD streaming, it appears Netflix on the Roku Ultra...
