4K the new thing to have so ok buy the tv now I need a player so ok !! Wait most places try to fool you into buying 4K upscale blu-ray players that don’t play 4K discs their shelves are flooded with 4K tv’s but are useless with out a way to play 4K ok finally got a 4K blu-ray player and now it’s hard to find the titles you want like rogue one releases today and no 4K anywhere what gives. Sony comes out with a PlayStation 4 pro and it doesn’t play 4k discs yes you may be able to stream if you feel like paying for a service that may or may not offer 4k versions of the movies you like and then there’s your provider. Can it handle the flow are you capped and don’t know it who knows. I don’t personally have some meter like a gas pump that tells me how much I’m using at any given time do you.
