Can I ask why you are considering switching to a PS4? This will help me structure my thoughts.
For BRs, I can say that "it works" but I am not exactly the biggest movie buff around. For gaming, be aware of all the rumours of a 4K-capable new version of the PS4 that is supposed to be incoming. If you want to game at 4K, this might be something to bear in mind but (on a very rough, basic level) I am extremely sceptical about the kind of performance that one can expect to get when even the most powerful standalone video card (GTX 1080) just maintains around late 30s to 45 frames per second in the most demanding, modern games. It will almost certainly have a significant price premium on the current console as well.
For gaming, I am a PC gamer first and foremost so have bought the PS4 mainly to play its platform exclusives and so far I have not been disappointed at all. The likes of Uncharted 4, the much maligned The Order 1886 (the game is a bit short but the artistic direction and setting is amazing), Ratchet and Clank reboot and Until Dawn have been thoroughly enjoyable. I also find that the local Playstation digital store (and the US one even more so; if you need information on how to buy stuff from the US store, just google - it's easy) often have exceptional bargains compared to our retail stores even on recent-ish releases of a couple of months ago.
I think it's worth having both major consoles/changing to the other mainly to access the platform exclusives or if more of your friends use one platform but not the other. Only you can answer the question on whether this is worth it. However, generally speaking the PS4 is a beefier machine and on cross-platform titles, these tend to perform better on the PS4, one notorious exception being Homefront: The Revolution. But that is a pretty awful game anyway. Xbox live is generally seen as the better implemented multi-player platform but I am not into multiplayer games, so I can't comment. For myself, preferring the platform exclusives on the PS4 and generally liking the size and shape of the Dualshock controller (as someone with a small-ish to medium-sized hand, I can't emphasise how much more I prefer it to the Xbox One controller) meant the PS4 was a no-brainer for me.

I have both consoles, my X1 gets very little power on time compared to my PS4 for lots of reasons, but the primary being I prefer the controller, and secondary being the hardware seems to cope better with games.
E3 is just around the corner.
MS announced this week they were abandoning efforts to include PVR TV in the Xbox, which I find exceptionally annoying. I think the Kinect CAN be good, but it's not consistent enough. I don't like the Xbox OS UI personally.
I bought the X1 out of curiosity and because it was released first, but I play it only for the exclusives pretty much.
The multimedia app isn't the nicest in the world, but it works fine, Plex works like Plex on any platform, and DLNA works fine.
Gaming is good (and that really depends on what gaming you like), Sony seems to be more agressive with their pricing on the online store now, they have good discounts.
I think I have only played one movie through mine (and that was when I got it on release day), from memory it worked fine
