That depends on you internet speed. Netflix streams 1080p (Blu-ray equivalent) at about 25 Mbps. I don't know about other services. That's in the ballpark of most Blu-ray discs. Their 4k is only about 15 Mbps.
"According to ReviewGeek, the blu-ray disk outperforms streaming by 3-5x. Streaming promises 4k viewing but the maximum quality is only 25 megabits per second while blu-ray plays at 82-128 megabits per second."
I don't doubt those numbers, but money probably plays a role. Not all discs or streaming are done at max bit rate. Netflix has stated that it was cutting back on bit rates, other sources may not be doing that. I just know what the gear tells me.
When my Oppo goes to that great HT in the sky, I'll get a 4k player so I can see what my TV can really do. :-)
No idea. It's in the info when they stream. I don't know if other sources do this too. They don't give the info. Maybe it takes too much bandwidth?
. . . I don't know how much compression is involved.
