    Netflix in 4K on my 65pfl9708?

    I would like to know how i can get the new Netflix service in 4K on my Ultra HD tv?
    Even how to get the 4K video`s from example You Tube on my tv in real 4K??

    Because i see that the tv is having the H.264 MPEG video compressing, and not possible to serve the new H.265 HVEC which will be needed for streaming the Ultra HD (4K)???

    Will there be some new software to make this possible, of mayby a special 4K App by Netflix??
    Of is this only with new hardware possible?

    So Yes, i think Philips should arange this for the early buyers from those expensive TV??
    HDMI 5 will alowe the 4K (3480x2160) but how i provide this?

    Would it be possible by using the new Pluggy HDMI stick which will be able for the H.265 compression technic?

    I`m afraid i bought my new Ultra HD tv again to early, because it isn`t useble to get any 4K signals in??

    Thanks,

    Regards,

    Dinand

    Hi Dinand.

    I have been finding out additional information about the requirements for Netflix in 4K.

    Netflix in 4K requires the TVs to support the HVEC codec, which this TV model does not support. Therefore 4K Netflix will not be possible on these TV models.

    A 3rd party solution that is able to process the HVEC codec externally is therefore required to obtain Netflix in 4K.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Hello Ina,
    Thanks for you reaction. Sure i know that the tv at the moment does`t support the H.265. The questions is more when Philips or mayby betther the new firm who has taken over this, will make an update for solving this problem??
    At the IFA show in Berlin 2013 and later there was told that there would be an update hardware and software to make the tv future proof. It CAN NOT BE that there would be NO update for a tv that cost around 5000 Euro, when it was a couple of months new on the market!!!
    So the question will be open till we get an answer when we would expext that prommised update.
    Regards

    Dinand

    Hi Ina,

    Another new user wanting to know if there is an update. Part of the Philips PR on launch was that this TV was upgradable when the new 4k technology came out. Clearly there are several people here who paid £4500 for a TV that was upgradable.

    Please can you get confirmation that there will be an upgrade option on the firmware to the standard H.265 codec as if not I will be returning the TV as mis-sold to Philips. feel free to google the TV reviews, they all say the cool part about it is that it has the upgradable "slot" on the back.

    As there is no other way of presenting 4k content one could even question if the TV is actually 4k until it is possible??

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Ina, Please help us out what will be going about the H.265 and the HDMI up to 2.0 and 2.2 upgrade. Are will Philips provide all buyers a Media Player who is working with the right hardware to make in possible to stream 4K from internet, and wacht some Satelite programs also in H.265 which are being lauched at SES Astra, and soon wil start at Eutelsat to????

    If you are folowing German forums about this, more custumors are giving the tv back under the reasson that Philips is selling a tv what can`t provide what the are prommising???
    On the IFA Show last september in Berlin was also said there would be ungrading for hard and sofware issues. So wenn we can see them coming??

    I`m afraid we wil have to follow the same procedure if not soon will be the needed upgrades avaible!!!

    But i HOPE Philips/TPS will be so smart and take care about this matters, if they would be selling Ultra HD tv`s in the future!!
