What offers better 4k quality? Dedicated streaming device (NVidia shield, roku 4) or integrated TV apps?
I'm kind of scratching my head at this one. I bought one of the new Vizio M series 4k tv's. I'll invest in a nicer once when 4K becomes more widely adopted.
I also bought an NVidia shield streamer, mostly because I'm invested in the Google Play ecosystem and it's 4K compatible. Something tells me Google Play movies will get 4K support before Apple does, but ironically, Amazon beat them both to the punch.
Anyways, I realized after buying the Shield that it only does Netflix and Youtube in 4K, and is missing some of the other apps that deliver 4K content (Amazon, Ultraflix, etc).
I was thinking of also getting a Roku 4 to bridge the gap, but having 2 streamers sounds silly. I realized that the Vizio has those missing apps, but was wondering if the quality is any different than what I'd get on a Roku or Nvidia Shield TV?
I know a lot of you download and store 4k movies and stream them that way. On a different note, where do you get 4k content for download (legally)? I have always liked the idea of having my own dedicated server for movies.
Anyways, thanks for any advice!
