Netflix Starts Streaming 4K Content

The good news: Netflix is streaming 4K content. The bad news: Currently the only thing you can watch is eight minutes of standard test footage of people riding bikes. frown

From Monday, US subscribers to the video streaming platform who have already made the sizable financial investment that a 4K UHDTV demands will be able to watch the eight-minute film in its full resolution. It is available in six different frame-per-second formats -- 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50 and a data-allowance-busting 59.94 frames per second. But don't get too excited: the video is made up of standard test footage scenes such as market stalls and people riding bikes albeit at an incredibly high definition.
