      4K Netflix is actually 15mbps + 3mbps HDR extension. It's comparable to 1080p blu-ray as h.265 is about twice as efficient as h.264, however that 15mbps includes sound on Netflix, on Blu-ray lossless sound can already take up 5.5 mbps. Blu-ray sustains up to 54 mbps all combined. It's a big step up from 1080p netflix at h.264 5mbps including sound. Compating 4K blu-ray to Netflix (even their ultra quality at 10mbps) will blow everyone away. However a proper upscaled blu-ray is not that far off from a studio upscaled 4K UHD disc (made from a 2k master which most still are)

      Interesting! I used to be able to see the bit rate on Netflix on my PS3 before, but I can't see it on the TV app or the PS4 app and my rig doesn't have a 4k monitor. I seem to remember blu-ray being about 50 mbps at least, with uncompressed sound anyway. Luke Cage on Netflix actually looks pretty good in 4k, I suspect that since it's a brand new production, some actual thought and tech went into making the image 4k ready.

      Funny thing, the 192khz lossless soundtrack of Akira runs at 15mbps, matching the entire bitrate for 4K netflix.
      But indeed 4K Netflix at 15 mbps is 6 times as good as 1080p Netflix since it uses the more advanced HEVC encoding. It would be nice if they used that for 1080p too. (I though Netflix had 10mbps option for 1080p as well, maybe not anymore and that became the 4K tier)
      I wish it had an option to downscale 4K Netflix to 1080p, that should look pretty close to blu-ray.
      Luke Cage is filmed with Red Epic Dragon 6K cameras, so yep should look good down sampled to 4K.

      Looks like the thread got closed while I wasn't looking. Not saying one is right or wrong. But look at it MS point of view. Is it ok for Valve to bypass Windows 10 ( and MS altogether ) by having a Stembox which doesnt run Windows and Steam OS availabe for PC gamers? Valve have already been clear, they dont want to use Windows. So is it ok for Valve to monopolize the PC market ? But not ok for MS to try and use the exclusives to keep PC gamers on Windows? There is a difference there. Valve still supports all other platforms. MS is blocking off even their own customers with windows 7 and 8. Plus there are many alternative ways to get games that come to Steam. There's not really such a thing as a Steam exclusive. Anyway I'm not the biggest fan of Steam either. I do have a bunch of Steam games, yet all from sales. And their mod support is kinda nice. GoG.com is my preferred business model from a consumer perspective.

      Yeah the thread got way into danger zone. I guess I just don't see an issue with MS keeping exclusives to themselves. Its not like 3rd parties can't release on both. :)
