Recommedation for streaming box/media player


I'm after a streaming box with a couple of fairly simple requirements:

- has free on demand streaming, especially iPlayer and 4OD

- can stream Netflix

- can play a variety of media formats, with expandable storage to keep files on

I currently only have an HD TV but ideally I'd like something that would still work if I upgraded to 4k: I've read this can be an issue, especially with Netflix.

The trouble is not many devices work as capable media players, at least not without spending a lot of money. A cursory glance around the options sees a lot of love for the Shield Pro but that looks like overkill: I'm not interested in gaming, just watching TV.

Are there any other more affordable devices that can do those three things, ideally to 4k standard?
