Movies from comedy to drama to your favorite Hollyweird Star.

There is no answer to this

because quite simply, streams vary greatly in their compression, and the less compression, the better they look. Every streaming service has to compress, just like cable TV channels have to compress. So if you are watching a 4K stream, it all depends simplistically on how many bits per second you are getting. And a stream will never be the full bits per second you will get from an original disk, at least in my experience. I will say that the 4K bluray from a disk source is far and away the best home video I've ever seen. I watched Vertigo, which I've never seen in a theater, but which I've seen many times, and it was a new experience in 4K.
