Hey Guys,

I am quite new to this... actually, my tv will arrive in 2 days.
So I don't really have any idea, where to watch 4k stuff?

What would you recommend? Like, is it Netflix? Or Do I need to get some 4k player?

Netflix, Youtube, and a 4k player are going to be your main sources. The Xbox One S makes a great player.

Keep in mind 4k streaming looks more like 1080p Blu ray in terms of quality

If this is true, you'd be better off with some 4K player and buying actual CDs at the moment.

Is PS3's bluray capable to play such videos?

I don't think so, only PS4 and Xbox One

Shame, I'd take out PS3 for that... Maybe it's time to exchange the x360 for a new ps4 pro.

streaming digital services like Netflix, also some cable companies are planning to implement 4k signals next year instead of 720p or 1080p. make sure your bandwidth from your isp is best they have to offer otherwise your going to end up with the annoying spinning buffering circle while binge watching.

Only Xbox One S has a 4k BD player. PS4 / PS4 Pro do not. There are only 3-4 standalone 4k BD players on the market currently.

Get yourself an Xbox One S as it has a 4K Blu Ray player and I'm pretty sure supports 4K Netflix.
