Is this what passes for a bargain? A mere $3199...gee, I think I have that much in coins on my dresser.

From AVS Forum:

Hopefully I'm not following this issue close enough but just learned that Sony (and others) have partnered up with Netflix to modify their "NEW" 2014 4k tvs with a decoder to decode Neftlix' 4k content soon to be transmitted via internet. Am I correct that my new tv is already outdated and won't be able to stream the 4k content from Netflix?

Is this real???

  Does anyone actually have the bandwidth in the US to transmit 4k properly?

  No Way. You should be able to watch all Netflix contents including their new contents on regular HDTV. Your TV is not out of date for next 10 years.

If the TV you buy can't play h.265 content then you will not be able to watch Netflix 4K content on it (other than the early demo h.264 streams) and you will have to buy an external 4K-ready playback device.

I believe Sony has already implied their 4K TVs will require external decoders for 4K content. They are already preparing the FMP-X1 decoder (which is $800) for this purpose.

  No 4K TV can currently natively play h.265 content without an external decoder and Netflix does not have the backbone infrastructure nor does it plan to support h.265 content streaming anytime soon anyway .That is nothing more than rumors some Netflix PR types are spreading to keep existing Netflix customers happy. For the foreseeable future h.265 streaming will be limited to local source buffered, high bandwidth broadband services such as cable or fiber based services such as FIOS. Bottom line Netflix and 4K streaming is a non-starter.

As for this Sony XBR-65X900A model and the FMP-X1 external decoder box I would avoided both like the plague. I got this bundle last fall through our salvage business that had been returned to Best Buy. After MANY issues I finally got Sony support to replace the XBR-65X900A last month with the XBR-65X900B at no cost and so far I am happy with the XBR-65X900B though having to use Sony's POS external decoder for 4K content is a bit disappointing. Even Sony support engineers agree prematurely releasing the XBR-65X900A before the engineering was complete was a BIG mistake. IMO, regardless of the manufacturer, 4K technology implementation in Ultra HDTVs  is STILL WAY to immature to shell out $3K+ for the privilege of owning one .You are better off spending less and getting a top of the line 1080P set for now.

Sony has a long track record for introducing over priced products that eventually die...such as the small OLED TV
and recently a music server and now this. they never learn. They have lost money for about 6 years but they refuse
to change.If they changed they would "lose face" and in Japan that's horrible...better to go out of business.

Netflix is already streaming 4K in h.265.

  Because that person is right. Did you read AND comprehend the article that you cited?

"Still, the bitrate of these streams are only around 15 Mbps so while the picture will be superior to HD Netflix, this flavor of 4K is not a true demonstration of the higher resolution. HDTVtest.com adds that to their trained eyes, some Blu-ray titles still offer a cleaner image."

I took a free 30 day trial of streaming on line frm NetFlix and first the Sony must connect to the net...that takes some time...then connect to Netflix...that takes a few minutes...then you get to select old movies that have been on cable for years....wanted to see Monument Men....not available...then Catch 22...not available...then Slaugher House five,
not available. I have a cable modem with the optional fast download speed. I will cancel after the 30 days expire.

I don't understand why technology ignorant people such as yourself post arguments without even a basic fundamental understanding of what they posted letalone owning any of the 4K hardware in question   READ what you linked: pseuo h265 is like pseo HD. but then again I guess if you are ignorant it makes no difference anyway.

From my experience, you can cancel now. You'll still get the remaining days of your trial period.
