We dont have a TV aerial here; just use broadband.
TVNZ Ondemand doesnt work on most of our devices due to DRM rights (annoying)
For my daughters birthday we got Netflix. This service seemed so good that after a few days we upgraded to HD and thats when problems started. Netflix 'standard' plan works with most anything but their HD plan although looks attractive, only worked with a couple of devices in our house, and even then, not in HD.
So you may have Netflix HD, have the bandwidth, but unless you have an approved device eg TV with Netflix, get low resolution.
If Netflix worked with all devices there should be no excuse for torrent downloads or Android streamers such as 'Showbox' but when Showbox actually works better than Netflix at zero price, the argument for legit watching gets watered down imho.
There is info on Netflix device compatibility on their site, (the device list is quite limited) but the bottom line is it comes down to money - when TV makers pay Netflix truckloads for their devices to be compatible, the small players like TV Box makers dont stand a chance. Also, my Samsung Note3 didnt work in HD. My linux PC didnt work until I fooled Netflix by using a spoofer; but its still running standard resolution. They claim that the reason devices are limited is because unapproved devices may not work properly; but surely a disclaimer would suffice eg 'unapproved devices may not work properly or with full resolution'; that would keep players like me happy and from what I read there are thousands who are missing out on HD.
Im importing a couple of TV boxes which have 4k streaming H265 VP9, but they work work with the HD service Im paying for from Netflix.
Wished there was a cost-effective service that we could use that once paid for, provided HD good quality like Netflix, unfortunately at the moment there seems nothing.
VP9 and H265 are NOT the same thing. VP9 is a codec invented by Google, H265 is by ISO/IEC MPEG
If you want 4k, pay the extra for netflix... It's worth it.
