      Forget Netflix calibration, I'm still peeved Panasonic won't put out a DV update for the FX750 (2018 model) even though it has the same chipset as the GX800.

      Netflix recommending a TV? I can recommend they up the 4k bit rate, search functions, auto play, content artistic quality etc. before they say what they think is good.

      Problem solved for me in a few days anyway.

      I think that's likely to be due to licensing issues, rather than Panasonic simply not wanting to do it.

      I been reading the criteria for meeting the Netflix requirements. Only one my TV A Q9FN misses to not make the list even tho it is better than some other Samsung TV's on the list is it does not have A Netflix button on its controls. I think that is why it didn't make the list rofl!

      Edit: It really is nothing but a marketing ploy.

      It'll work and it'll sell TVs, as Netflix is as well know as Sky or Virgin these days

      15.25 mbps for 4K. Come on Netflix give some thought to your bitrate and bring it up to blu ray standard at least.

      If you mean 1080p blu ray, then the two are already comparable - 1080p blu ray is h.264, while 4K Netflix is HEVC, which achieves the same quality as h.264 using roughly half the bit-rate.

      If you mean the same bit-rate as UHD blu-ray, then that's clearly not going to happen - you'd need a sustained broadband speed of around 150Mb/s to stream it, which many people's broadbands can't reach, and you'd probably hit your ISP's maximum data allowance every month.

      Most ISPs don't have a data allowance anymore unless its mobile data or some cheap package.
      I agree tho that UHD bandwidth is too great for the vast majority of peoples internet connections.

      For stuff shot in SDR there's not a lot of difference, but Netflix HDR stuff can look a lot better than 1080p blu-ray. I'm often surprised by how good it does look, actually - I can only recall a single instance of visible compression artefacts throughout the whole run of Godless, for example.

      Agree, my brain tells me that it is low bitrate and shouldn't look that good but sometimes the image quality can be startlingly good...Godless is a very good example and may be the best looking show on Netflix (as well as being absolutely brilliant)

      Amazon Prime Video has done their own list of certified TVs. Sadly I’m still searching for it :rolleyes:
